These properties for sale have a bathtub, very popular with Americans
“It’s true that American customers are very fond of bathtubs, and if it’s a bathtub with a view of the Eiffel Tower, it’s a must. American customers also very often request guest toilets separated from the bathroom.says Alexis Capron, real estate agent at Keller Williams Partners. What about the French? “As for the French, there are really two teams: a bathtub team for its relaxation and practicality with a toddler, and a shower team (often Italian) for the more invigorating side.“, he completes. According to a survey carried out by the ForumConstruire.com site with more than 1,100 Internet users in 2018, only 15.3% of respondents would be satisfied with a bathtub alone, compared to 26% who would opt for the shower, the rest preferring the comfort of dual equipment.
