Not having a bath will greatly impact the desirability of a home, which can make selling it even more challenging and can consequently lower the house price. Potential buys may use it as a bargaining tool to reduce the asking price.

Adding a bath to a bathroom means a total bathroom renovation, moving and adding plumbing to allow for it, which can easily cost $15,000 or more. It is an expense and process that most homebuyers don’t want to go through, especially if there is only one bathroom in the home.

By not having a bath, your home will not be marketable to growing families as having a bath is a necessity, so your target demographic will be limited.

However, if you are considering removing a bath/shower combo to make way for a walk-in shower, then it will likely improve the sale price/asking price.
