Calculating Square Feet of Finished Living Space

I see listings with the garage counted in square footage of space (even listed in square footage of living space).  Can you count garage in finished space?

Garage is not finished living space, unless it has been converted with permits and is heated/airconditioned (as appropriate for the climate).  Then there should be no garage square footage shown.  Agents and owners who do so should be ashamed of themselves!

I have seen a lot of houses recently where the garage has been converted yet the agent shows both a garage as well as adds in the square footage for the converted area.   Sloppy and misrepresentation, IMHO.

Then there are plenty of agents who misrepresent from the listing I have been viewing. Kind of games the system, including "Zestimates".
