We live in TN and converted our garage into a rec-room, is this going to decrease the value?

If the usual house in your neighborhood, a conversion will decrease the value.

Was it done to code with permits closed out, and hooked into the heating & air conditioning?   If so, you'll be in a better position that if no permits were obtained and the heat is a secondary system

You should be fine.  It will depend on the buyer.  Some people are really big on having a garage.  On the other hand, a buyer with a family may look at a rec-room as more important.  I would just make sure that it isn't just a "catch all" room, and really stands out as a rec-room.  Make it good enough to the buyer that it was worth losing the garage space.  Best wishes.
