After 30 years as a broker in two states... I would say that a powder room with a toilet and sink is always considered a half bath.

A toilet only used to be called a 1/4 bath... but I haven't seen that used in years.

A toilet, sink, and shower used to be called a 3/4 bath... but that is very commonly now called a full bath. 

A toilet, sink, shower and tub or shower and tub combo is always called a full bath.

If it has a sink and a toilet, 'yes'.  Our local MLS will show that as .5 though many other sites that feed of the MLS data 'round up'. As a result, if you have 2 full baths and one 'half bath' it would appear in the MLS as '2.5' and on many websites as '3'.

Correct, David.

A powder room/half bath is defined as not having a shower/tub.

Some homes do in fact have a shower in the powder room and are then considered a full bath.

Hope that helps!

A powder room is a small bathroom with only a sink and a toilet so if that is the case, yes it would be considered a 1/2 bath. Generally used as a guest bathroom.
