We are selling a house that has two bedrooms on the first

Customer Question

We are selling a house that has two bedrooms on the first floor and a finished upper level that can be used as a bedroom, home office, studio or playroom. We'd like to advertise this home as having 3 bedrooms, but does this mislead the buyer into thinking
that there are three bedrooms on the first floor? If so how should we describe this house setup?

Advertising a 3 bedroom home as having 3 bedrooms does not imply that they are all 3 on the same floor. Anyone that actually inspects the home is going to find that the rooms are split between the two floors.

Your real estate agent is going to be the best person to help you with advertising, and assist you with making it so that your ad works with local practices (there are variations in how these multi-use spaces are advertised from one area to another). If you are not working with a realtor now, you may want to consider doing so, they can help guide you through the process and will usually help get you a better sales price, ensure that you don't miss any critical steps, and usually will help reduce the amount of time your property spends on the market.
