Good luck with your home search.
Exactly - it's a room that doesn't legally qualify as a bedroom and/or the current seller is using it for something other than a bedroom so it's doesn't look like one. It should have a door that leads to a common area (that closes), a full size window, not be below-grade, have at least 70 sq feet of floor space and have a closet (with or without a door).
If you need 3 bedrooms - just make sure this one isn't in the basement :)
There is a significant market value difference between a 2 bedroom and a 3 bedroom house. You will face the same issue down the road if you go to the sell the house unless you can make it a legal 3rd bedroom.
Great question! A bedroom is only considered when the room has a closet and window (that you can physically get you body out of in the event of an emergency). This particular home the room in question (3rd bedroom) is possible missing one of the required items to be demed a bedroom.
