How many bedrooms is it anyway?

Determining the number of bedrooms a home consists of seems like easy business.  Well not so fast…

Homes, if they are on septic systems should be listed according to how many bedrooms the septic system is rated for.  That is not always the case – so check the county’s website.

Rules for counting bedrooms on sewer systems are a bit less clear.  Often, rooms that are used as a den or a library are called a bedroom.  A factor for many buyers is if there is or is not a closet.

This bedroom question can also lead to opportunities to find a 3 bedroom home listed as a two bedroom – so be open to doing a little digging.
