Here are a few simplified takeaways

  1. Entrance/Exit: A bedroom needs to have a door to the main house and a window to the outside.
  2. Ceiling Height: At least 50% of the ceiling needs to be 7 feet high. Hence, a sloping attic ceiling is “OK” in most cases.
  3. Size: A bedroom needs to be at least 70 square feet, with no side being less than 7 feet. Hence, a 6 by 12 foot room is not a bedroom.
  4. Closets are not required in most cases. Many agents and buyers mistakenly believe that a “bedroom” must have a closet, but it often depends on local real estate codes.

County Records and MLS info are sometimes inaccurate.

This is also another reason why we need skilled human beings to appraise homes. AI/computers will believe county records every time.
