Help the community by answering this question:


As long as attic has separate access, not into another bedroom, like in a cape cod where you walk up directly into attic space. Also, bedroom must be a true, fully functional bedroom, not just a division of space. If it is a real bedroom then the home could be considered a 4 bedroom home. Price will vary depending upon location.

If you added it without permits it might not increase the value and it might get you a citation from the township with they do their CO inspection for a sale.

Really, there just isn't enough information to answer the question - even if the space was properly (and legally) finished.
How big is it?
Do you have more than one bath?
Does it have an access that doesn't interfere with another room - especially another bedroom?
Does it have good heat and especially does it have good AC?
Of course the extra room doesn't HAVE to be a bedroom - it could be something else - office, playroom, hobby room. Extra space is good but some extra space is better than other extra space.
