Response to a homeowner regarding my lack of adjustments for a Jack & Jill bathroom:

"And to address your concerns about the Jack & Jill bath - here is the comment I made in the report and the reason I did not adjust for bathroom counts between the comps: 

"No adjustments for extra baths as the Subject's Jack & Jill bath is functionally the same as homes with two full baths with a half bath downstairs, regardless of how the county reports the bathrooms."

Sacramento County counted the Jack & Jill bath in the Subject as 1 bath with a half bath downstairs (1.1 baths). I believe functionally, it is the same as 2 full baths upstairs and I treated it as such. In other similar townhomes with identical floorplans, the county reports 2 full baths upstairs with a half bath downstairs (2.1 baths). Since I cannot tell from the MLS or from the country records what is actually present, I chose not to make an adjustment between the two."
