Sellers- Square Footage Matters

More and more I am encountering sellers that aren’t aware of the “true square footage” of their home. 

  • Only Heated and Cooled Living Space is usually eligible to be counted in a home’s square footage.
  • Garages are Not typically  included in sq-ft- the exception would be if it was heated and cooled space
  • Many people enclose a porch, add a small addition or convert a garage and forget to add that back into the sq-ft of their home.  It is very important to know what your homes true square footage is before placing it on the market for sale.  Just make sure these areas are heated and cooled space.
  • The County Records aren’t always accurate, since they only assess a home every few years they can miss important recent changes that affect a home’s sq-ft.
