A second master bedroom is the latest must-have for high-end house hunters. This second master is actually better called the "snoring room." The reason for a second master is obvious, but just so the cat is out of the bag, many couples who live together prefer to not sleep together because one or both of them snore. (So, you're not alone)
Although I've never personally had buyers tell me a snoring room is on their wish list in their search for the ideal home, I imagine I would hear some interesting confessions once they learned what the extra room was really all about. (Kind of like our ancestors discovering indoor plumbing for the first time.)
To completely understand what is happening in the high-end market, the bonus room isn't just an extra bedroom next to or down the hall from the master bedroom. High-end house hunters want two master suites — complete with two big bedrooms, separate walk-in closets, separate bathrooms and naturally both equipped with an area for that huge flat-screen TV.
When you think about it, the extra master is cheaper than a couple buying two separate houses down the road because of the dreaded snore.
