Aggregate Ratings come to my mind in this situation 
(http://schema.org/AggregateRating). Most of the time, the average 
rating (the RatingValue property of AggregateRating) wouldn't be a whole 
number, so they choose to give ratings in decimal format:
<span itemprop="ratingValue">3.2</span>
or in this case:
<span itemprop="bathrooms">0.5</span>

Zillow, for example, already displays the number of bathrooms in 
decimal form (1.0, 1.5, 2.0, etc).
