We added a walk -in bedroom closet (10x15) that has a door. Is this considered a new room?

It is a room and will add to your total square footage of the home, however most agents when giving a room count have guidelines that state that they can only count rooms such as bedrooms, kitchen, living, dining rooms, office or den, exercise rooms things like that. We do not count closets, hallways, or baths. I am not sure of the reasoning behind that thinking other than perhaps the average person will not spend much time in any of the rooms not counted and therefore it is not counted in the living space room count. Please note I said average though, as I have a relative who spends more time in the bathroom than any other room in the house (don't ask me, long showers, primping, staring at himself in the mirror, don't want to know as it's my brother, LoL). So will that closet add value, absolutely if it was added square footage that wasn't taken from another room, but instead was literally added. What it will most definitely do though is increase the appeal of your home, potentially making it more marketable to today's discerning buyers.

Good luck and I hope this answer helped!

I would consider it an asset to the bedroom but not a room itself.

Probably not - unless it has direct access to a hallway and at least one window. Though you're better off marketing it as a new monster walk-in closet anyway (or at that size, perhaps a mini-mall) ;)

Is it a room that has access from the hallway, window, heating/air conditioning, etc.
