Do basement bedrooms count?

16 years ago

Just wanted to get a sanity check before we dropped our price again in Maryland.

My REA sent me four comps in my area and they all have finished basements (mine is framed out, but not finished, but we have more square feet than any of these on the 1st floor due to a builder addition for the model home).

These other homes all listed their basement bedrooms in the house numbers, which I thought was odd. The most expensive home only has a 1/2 bath in the basement, so whoever got that bedroom has to go up two flights of stairs to take a shower. And that one doesn't specify that it's a walk-out basement, which is even worse.

Is it normal to list basement bedrooms & baths in the listing?
