As the Realtors below stated, sometimes information is automatically pulled from public records. It may be that this house was originally a 3BR and was renovated to a 2BR home, or vice versa.

In this area, you have some 2BRs and some 3BRs, yet square footage is sometimes the same.

The only way to really know is to see it for yourself. This house at 167 N Robinson St is not currently on the market. If you are looking for a similar house in that part of West Philly, please call me. I can send you the details on some other houses available in the neighborhood.

Have a great day. Looking forward to speaking with you soon.

All the best,

When we, as agents, list a home in the multiple listing services some information regarding the house will automatically pull over. It just so happens that the bedroom and bathroom count of a home happens to be 2 of the fields that pull over. A proactive agent will take notice of the inaccurate information and correct it upon listing the property, but this is not always the case. Upon looking into this home, there was a previous listing (2012) that does have the home listed as a 2 bedroom property, as you stated.

With all due respect, each home is different and there are multiple ways to add a 3rd bedroom over time.

That said, public records are not perfect. This is not an advertisement, but a copy of the assessor's public record for this home.
