We have a bathrm w/ 2 areas divided by a sliding door & wall. 1 side: tub & sink, 1 side: toilet & pedestal sink as powder room. Is bathrm 1.5 bath?
That would be a full bath. If one side only has a tub and sink it would need a toilet in order to be called a bath.

I am not able to submit a listing to sell a property
Trulia only allows licensed Realtors to post. If you want your home posted here you're going to have to list it with someone. There are those brokers who will list for a flat fee.
