A major relator association has announced it will stop using the term “master bedroom.”
The Houston Association of Realtors said it will no longer use the word "master" to describe bedrooms and bathrooms on real estate listings. Instead, the term "primary" will be used in its place.
According to the association the word "master bedroom" is problematic because some believe it carries connotations to slavery and slave masters.
The change happened after several members of the HAR complained that the word "master" is insensitive.
