Resale Closet Question
Hi! I'm not selling my house but rather considering some changes, and I'd like to ask the real estate experts on here what their opinion is regarding resale. Don't want to make changes that are totally wrong.
The house is a SMALL older colonial with a tiny MB w/shower + 1 sink (no vanity). The only way to expand the MB is by pushng it into the hall linen closet. So then you have a house with NO linen closet.
I've come up with a plan that involves changing the closets in the 2 smallest BRs. The tiniest (#4BR) has a little closet that could be opened into the hall (closed over in the BR) and become the linen closet. Now I can't call this room a BR w/o a closet there. The only place to put one is to push into the #3BR. #3BR has a closet on another wall. SO...what if I opened up that closet (becomes an alcove) and moved the closet to the wall next to the new #4BR closet?
In other words, built 2 closets next to each other along one wall, one opening into #4BR, the other opening into the #3BR? This works well for giving the house a hall linen closet, and keeping the #4BR a bedroom. The drawback is the #3BR becomes narrower. It is 11.5' wide and would go to 9' wide.
If you were buying a house, what would be worse? No linen closet? Or two (out of 4) BR's being really small?
Thanks for your thoughts on this! :)
