below grade bedrooms?

Asked by William Strauss, Chicago, IL Mon Jun 7, 2010

how come bedrooms below grade on a split level do not count as bedrooms but in the city of Chicago they have duplex downs and those are counted as bedrooms even though they are below grade?

Bedrooms are now defined as being above grade. There is a seperate field in the MLS for below grade bedrooms. The other answer is that some agents report it however they want and too often its up to everyone else to police them.
