I was just reading your other replies on the last question. There was absolutely nothing you said wrong. I don't know why anyone was confused. I knew exactly what you were saying the whole time.
What I want to explain is that selling a home has many different aspects that are important. Value of course being very important to you, but so should the # of days on market that it will take to sell as that too will ultimately impact the value. You see, the longer a home sits on the market the more a buyer thinks something is "wrong" with it and then they shy away.
Cape cods are a very unique style of home. Some people love them and some people not so much. I have been an award winning real estate broker in Jackson for the past 10 years and can provide you with a ton of insight on this and other things as well.
In addition to being a seller's agent I am also an Accredited Buyer Representative with the National Association of Realtors. Why that matters to you is because I will help put you in the shoes of your potential buyers and see your home through their eyes. That's how you can improve its value.
The quick answer I have for you is "yes" I think you should convert the bath but only if it's done RIGHT! I see many homeowners set out trying to improve their homes only to find out they did more harm then good because now something about it is "weird".
It sounds to me as though you have already interviewed an agent to help determine your value of $205,000. I just want to suggest that you interview more. None of us are the same and you need to find the one that will work best for you.
Please feel free to check out my website below and see what other past clients have to say about me and my services. If you're interested in meeting my contact information is all right there.
Good luck to you! :)

I can help you find a local agent in Jackson that can tell you the value with or without the bath. If you are renovating the whole house then the 2nd full bath will definitely add value but it depends house much you spend on it if it will make up for the cost of it.
to compete better with other homes, and hopefully also sell it faster...
What you also can do is put your home on the market and have the estimates and the plan for the bathroom expansion handy so that new owners know that they could expand the powder room to a full bath, and then they could do it their way??? Discuss it with a local Realtor.
