Skip to comments.Houston Realtors to drop the term "master" bedroom
Posted on 06/26/2020 7:21:07 PM PDT by FLT-bird
The Houston Association of REALTORS® says it will stop permitting the term master bedroom or master bathroom to be used in MLS descriptions. The decision to remove the term comes after a group of real estate professionals said the term master on property description represents a potential stigma.
HAR has updated the phrase to primary bedroom and primary bath on its MLS and on har.com.
The national standards organization for MLSs is reportedly considering a similar change that would make primary the new standard nationwide.
Master represents a stigma and place in time that we need to move forward from, Tiffany Curry, a Houston real estate broker and owner of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, told the Houston Chronicle. As a progressive, diverse city, Houston should be reflective of its citizenship.
Some home builders are dropping the term, too. David Weekley Homes now refers to the space as the owners retreat instead.
They dont even understand what the word means.
LMAO!! Such cowards!
Is the “Dominatrix Bedroom” a reasonable replacement?
What about houses with servants quarters (although they have now been renamed the mother-in-law suite).
So will it now be called primarybating?
Next, no porches.
LOL! I think MasterCard has a real problem.
- Master craftsman
That went along with removing Family Room also in case folks who don’t have a family ....
Is everyone a whimp? Geeez...this is so stupid.
That change has been underway for quite a few years already.
It’s just becoming more of a formal policy.
As much as five, six years ago, I would see real estate shows on tv with agents bringing this up. For certain prospective buyers, the agent would not start off saying ‘Master’ anything unless the prospective buyer used the term first.
They forgot to mention that in the future, the word “axe” will be dropped as well. An axe must now be called a hatchet.
So what did they decide? Slave quarters sounds more sexy?
Cave is too barbaric, too Troglodyte.
"Sock it to me, sock it to me..."
Just try banning master-bate (tion)
Some males in this country might grow a spine and fight back LOL
What if you have a “Master’s” degree? Or use a “Master” lock on your school locker? What is the superintendent going to call the “master” key. The 1987 movie “Masters of the Universe” must go. In school you can no longer “master” the material. Courts will no longer be able to appoint “special masters”.
The left loves to play with the language.
