A three-bedroom home gives you room for almost everything. Everything, that is, except those judgy relatives. They can find an Airbnb.
Nothing says, “Post-pandemic, I’m going to continue working at home” like setting your sights on purchasing a three-bedroom home in San Francisco. In our city of compact homes that make your relatives from elsewhere pity you for your lack of space, landing a three-bedroom home gives you room for, well, almost everything.
In our 20 years working in real estate in San Francisco, we’ve had many clients start their search with three bedrooms as a must — to host visitors, for a kid (present or future) — or simply because Dad told them that anything smaller won’t hold its resale value (newsflash, Dad: that’s swing and a miss). Then comes the question of condo vs. single-family home. At this moment (March 2021), there are 65 three-bedroom SFRs on the market in SF and 88 condos. Do the math and keep an open mind.
So what would you do with all those bedrooms?
Bedroom #1 is obvious. It’s your sanctuary, your getaway, the place you lay your head every night. No longer described as the “master bedroom” and now called the primary or principal bedroom, this is the one that you hope fits a king bed, a dresser or two, and a couple of nightstands. In an ideal world, all that fits in a room that doesn’t face the street so it’s quiet and private.
If you have a kid, bedroom #2 belongs to that child. If you don’t, perhaps bedroom #2 is office #1 for one half of the pair purchasing the home. Bedroom #3 is also for a kid — present or future — or another home office. Or, if you’re nice, a place for your friends to stay when they visit.
