The room that was once referred to as a “bonus” room is now known by the acronym “FROG.” This stands for “Finished Room Over Garage,” which is a highly desirable feature. Because it stands apart from the rest of the house, FROGs make excellent playrooms, media rooms, exercise rooms, art studios, guest quarters, and man caves. When served by a separate staircase, FROGs make wonderful in-law suites and teen retreats. If they are furnished with a closet, FROGs can be counted as bedrooms in real estate listings. With all this in mind, sellers should make detailed mention of their finished rooms over their garages  because most buyers covet them for their great potential.   

If you are hoping to purchase a new home, chances are it will be spacious. Should you choose to downsize that may not be the case, since costs dictate that larger homes bring a greater return needed to justify current land and construction costs. Should you be in the market for a new home, contact us to schedule an initial consultation. As members of the Multiple Listing Service®, we can show you most any property for sale in your desired community.

HINT: If your Finished Room Over Garage does not already have a closet, install one and increase the living space in your home by a bedroom.
