What is a FROG (in Real Estate Lingo) and Why Would I Want One in My Home?

Before listing your home for sale, it’s best to take care of certain improvement issues that might pop up during your home inspection: insulation issues, minor plumbing problems, pests and vermin. But if you have a FROG in your home, consider it a boon for your home sale.

In real estate lingo, a FROG is a “Finished Room Over Garage.” These are extra spaces that can often be used as bonus rooms, play rooms, offices, home gyms, or studios. (If the room has a closet, it is considered a bedroom in the home listing.) Especially if your home doesn’t have a basement, it’s good to mention your FROG as a desirable feature of your home for sale.

At Beverly-Hanks, we make it easy for buyers searching for FROGs to find your home. Buyers can create a custom search for homes with FROGs and save it to receive future alerts.
