Tub or Shower?

Today on Inman News Illyce Glink had a very entertaining column .... bath or shower...It started out I believe with a question from older people who wanted to take out a bath tub in their home and replace it with a shower.  Would this ruin the value of the home?  Should they crawl over a tub each day to preserve that value or have a convenient walk in shower installed?  A question about value of real estate, of the value of bathroom fixtures turned into a question of bath vs. shower?

You gotta love the letter from a Texas appraiser with the sentences:  "Baths are fine as a method of getting cleaner than before, but you are seated in water that is polluted by skin flakes, dirt, deodorant, makeup and whatever. After stepping out of the bath and toweling off, some pollutants remain all over your body."

Ick...all over your body?


"Showers pound the body with clean water that immediately runs off down the drain carrying what ever can be loosened. Thus, after toweling off you are cleaner."


Trulia.com (a national search site) put out a trend report this week.  The average home listed in Columbus (just on their site I believe)  had 2.9 bedrooms and 1.8 baths.  That's averaging! I like Trulia.com but their 2.9 bedrooms and 1.8 baths tickles me.

Our Central Ohio multiple listing service (agent to agent information re: property, that becomes the ads (listings) consumers read on the internet search sites..(MaureenMcCabe.com, HERRealLiving.com, Trulia.com, Realtor.com etc where you see homes) the bath count goes, 1 bath, 1 1/2 bath, 2 baths, 2 1/2 baths, 3 baths.... we don't have .75 baths as some markets do and no .8 bathrooms..

Edit* January 2013 link no longer worked, so I broke it. Closing comments on this old post due to spam.  I would never have known about a long comment in some other language if a California real estate agent (member of AR) had not left a creepy sexual comment on an old, old post about bathroom fixtures.  So I guess I should say thanks or ick.
