You will have to contact the building dept regarding costs of permits and what the addition will do to your taxes. then you'll have to have an architect draw up plans and get estimates from contractors.

Be aware, the conversion of a dining room to a bedroom requires very little material investment. Where the value will be derived is turning a house with an obsolete floor plan into one of contemporary design. A kitchen with eat-in space, although it sounds wonderful, does not make it contemporary and most likely limits it's appeal to N'eaterners who are accustomed to archaic design.

Have a real visionary or a contractor or a REALTOR evaluate your homes potential. Integrated seating, open architecture, flex space are all elements of contemporary design and may be accomplished for less than you think.

It is possible that adding a bedroom, strategically located on the 1st level, can add value if there is demonstrated market for extended family living. Most folks however, will find a bedroom located where the DR formerly existed, will not be considered strategically located.

Now, regarding the DR/BR issue, to avoid creating even greater obsolesce, one must ask, "How big is the garage or parking provisions?" 4 Bedrooms eventually leads to no less the three drivers. Nothing hurts neighborhood values like cars parked on the front lawn.

I am familiar with your home and I think your price is now closer to being within market range. Your home has been on the market for a long time and you started out WAY too high. Agents may have forgotten about it by now. Buyers have seen it on the internet and in ads for over a year and may think that there is something wrong...hence, the danger of overpricing. You may need a fresh start.

Best of luck to you.
