Should we convert the bonus room connected to our master bedroom, by french doors, to a 4th bedroom to increase sales value?

We live in zip code 77583 which is a Houston suburb. Our home is just over 2000 sq ft, has 3 brs, 2 bath, dining room. The extra room off of the master is 11 X 11, has a closet, own entry door and connects to the hallway bathroom.

Hard to answer definitively without knowing what your floorplan is. If it essentially becomes a sitting room/bonus room to the bedroom perhaps but if it becomes an awkward access to the master then I would say it probably will not add value

Seems like there is a way to disconnect it from the Master or Bathroom, as it would be an odd entry way for a bedroom. I would love to see the floor plan and brain storm with you. We do this for a living, and have accessed these types of spaces for more finished square footage & great profit when selling. Hope you are safe from the hurricane damage.. We have a son in Austin!! Blessings and prayers for you down in Houston.

Three bedroom homes have more value than four; my recommendation is to make the bonus room into a larger master closet.

A room w/size 11X11 and a closet can be considered a 4th bedroom . French doors are more used for a study. Most buyers prefer solid doors for a bedroom.

In our area, this would be a mistake ( especially if you had to go through the master to enter the new bedroom. ) It is considered functional obsolescence here in the Cleveland OH Market. You wold be way better off turning the connected space into a study,office, den, walk in glamour closet, or master bath if you don't already have one. Is there a way to enter the space without going through the master? If so, that's the ticket! Make sure it has a closet. Hope that helps :)

A 4-bedroom home has a larger target audience than a 3-bedroom home, so it is a good idea. If there are not many 4-bedroom homes in your neighborhood, the modification is a way that you can make your house stand-out compared to others in the neighborhood. If a majority of the homes are already 4-bedrooms, than you are leveling the playing field when you list your home for sale. It sounds like your only expense would be to remove the French doors in the master, replace with sheet rock and then paint both bedrooms. You will need to replace floor molding and adjust the carpet or other flooring material that you have in both rooms, but this would be an inexpensive update to your home. I would recommend this update to your home. Have fun with the project!

If it were my home I would add the French Doors. Converting certainly adds value and can be marketed as a nursery, study/library, sitting area or workout space. The possibilities are endless for the right buyer.

It can be considered as a fourth bedroom already if it has a closet. Not sure I would spend the extra money to put in full doors. I think that is what you are asking. Good luck!

I would. to add another true bedroom would definitely increase the value, It would be great to market it as an adjacent "nursery/gym or office"
