It is supposed to work for your family. If you planning to stay there for some time just think about your comfort. If you decide to sell it is very easy to put a new wall. Before make an decision you need to consider how long you planning to stay, what is your motivations. From the selling point is better to have more bedrooms than less.
Good luck!

The single most clear indicator of marketability of a property is showings. The rule of thumb is 10-12 showings will produce one offer. if there are no showings, it is unlikely you will see an offer.

The biggest problem I see with home sellers and their Realtors is unmet expectations. I suggest sitting down and looking at the market activity every week or so. How many new listings, how many homes have lowered their price, how many went into escrow., etc.

I also recommend that you as the seller take some responsibility and know your competition. The NAR buyer survey shows that they average buyer looks at 10-12 homes before they make an offer. So you should know what homes a buyer that might be comparing your home in terms of size, amenities, price, etc. Selling a home is more like playing chess than poker. If they lower their price, what do you do. If one of your prime competitors sells, what was the selling price, terms, etc.

A good Realtor will keep you informed of your competition so you can make the right strategic decisions.

Know that listing price is a MARKETING TOOL. Overpricing in this economy is not a wise move. I suggest to my sellers that they underprice . No showings, lower the price.

Good luck
