Angelaole this is a Great question!

1. The simple answer is, No, as that is not a finished room.

2. HOWEVER, it has tremendous VALUE IF the listing Broker knows how to market it. There are specific ways to show this VALUE in MLS and all brochures. The value marketing WILL attract buyers and you will obtain a higher offer.

If you or any one else you know is thinking of buying or selling please refer me. I will make you proud that you helped someone by referring me.

Hi Ryan -

I'd like to add to Mike's thorough answer.

There is still time for seller to list their homes for 1st time home buyers to take advantage of the $8,000 1st time home buyer tax credit. This is a powerful motivator to potential buyers. In some cases they may even be able to use part of that tax credit towards their down payment - thus qualifying more buyers.

The buyer must close by November 30, 2009 to qualify.

1st time home buyer is someone who has not owned a home in the past 3 years - so those who have been "sitting on the fence" waiting for the market to "bottom out" may qualify and cause a larger buyer pool.

So, if you have a home priced up to $400K..which would still be in the higher end of 1st home buyers...and it is priced BELOW the last comparable Sold home in the past 2 months...your home has a decent opportunity of selling.

Time is of the essence and a home owner in Holliston should list now for that specific opportunity.

Please feel free to call me for seller coaching: 508-479-9833

Best Wishes

Mary Condon

Robin is correct. Also, as an appraiser, we count heated above grade square footage into the overall gross living area when appraising homes. So, whichever hat I'm wearing, Appraiser or Realtor, I say 'Go For It!" Sounds like a nice project. And yes, call it a sunroom! ... more
