San Francisco Real Estate: Escrow Out Loud


#39: Does a Closet a Bedroom Make?

Ep. 39

What makes a bedroom? A bed? A closet? A window? This week on Escrow Out Loud, our San Francisco Real Estate podcast, we talk about the requirements that a room needs to meet to be considered a bedroom.

[01:15] Some think that a room needs to have a closet and a window, but what are the official requirements set by the city building code? We've seen a lot of interesting spaces being marketed as bedrooms, some of which may be considered "illegal". San Francisco has a rich architectural history and layouts have changed significantly over the years. How do Victorian layouts compare to today's ideas of what a bedroom is supposed to be? Listen to our Open Concept Thanksgiving! episode for more on this topic.

[06:08] So, if it's not a bedroom what is it? How do we define these extra spaces? The extra nooks and crannies are often marketed by developers as +1, but what does that really mean?

[09:06] To wrap up, we explain why we believe it's always better to under-promise and over-deliver.
