I have a bedroom downstairs that is being used as a gym( treadmill + elliptical)Plus 4 more rooms upstairs including a bonus/game room. Do you think buyers would prefer to see it as an office or a gym?

To appeal to a larger number of buyers, creating an office space is always a good idea. Many people work from home now, but at the very least everyone appreciates having a space for management purposes. If the room is large enough, perhaps it could be divided somehow to be used for workout and office? (For example, putting in a screen to hide the workout space when it is not being used.) If not, since it is a downstairs bedroom, consider that this might be a really nice and quiet space for working!
