Is your home in Jackson or Bergenfield?

in either case with 4 bedroom the 2nd full bath will add value. Depends how much it will cost you to add it vs the added value. To say how much the added value is would be difficult with out seeing the house and the comparables.

Depending on the condition of the rest of the house it may or may not add value.

The conversion will absolutely increase the sale price of the house. It is impossible to give a better estimate of value without seeing the home in person. I think you are about to get a bunch of agents answering your question and offering to interview for the position of marketing your home. Of course I would welcome the opportunity to interview as well. Thank you and good luck.

I am not sure I have the total of the bathrooms in your home straight.
You have a 4 bedroom home, with a full bath on the first floor
and a half bath on the second floor, I assume a hall bath
Does the Master have its own bath

In other words besides the 1/2 bath i.e. powder room on the second floor how many other full baths in the house. and where are the 4 bedrooms located?

That will help us understand the floor plan of your home to better assist you.
Thank you
