Have you ever looked at a home that claimed it was 5BR and it was actually a 3BR. Â Were they calling a loft and/or a room in the basement a bedroom? Don't be fooled and find out it wasn't true whenÂ the home is appraised or worse yet, when you are trying to sell it. Be an informed consumer by knowing the facts.
