does paying cash for a home make a big difference when making an offer on a home -- will they maybe take a lower offer?
Defiantly. If you have two equal offers but one is in cash it will he the stronger offer. The lack of a mortgage contingency always helps

Bob Brandt answered:
What would give us more value if we were to sell in 10 or 20years?
My vote is to leave it as is and go with the higher bedroom count when selling, and you also won't have to put up with all the mayhem and costs of such a big conversion.

I noticed that the information about St. Charles North High School incorrectly indicates the teacher/student ration is 1/10. Can anyone explain?
My daughter attends North HS and some of her classes have 2 teachers so that might explain the 1/10 ratio you found.
