Home Measurement Services
In today’s highly competitive real estate industry, there has never been a greater need for accurate reporting of a property’s true living area as all too often the gross living area reported on public records differs from what actually exists.
As a Realtor, the MLS, as well as your Broker-In-Charge, requires you report an accurate and detailed summary of your listing when you enter them into the MLS so there are any number of reasons to get a professional measurement on your listings. In fact, our local MLS is one of the only MLS Services Nationwide that will NOT publish property square feet leaving the buyer and seller in total confusion.
With the large influx of people from across the Country, most are use to knowing a home’s square feet, and many have been put off by the region’s lack of information.
We as appraisers have been told by many customers, clients and buyers alike, this lack of forthcoming information has begun to create a negative impression by many out of town buyers with regard to the professionalism, or lack thereof, when it comes to the local real estate sales industry. This is primarily due to the lack of disclosure when it comes to dwelling size.
Here at Bostedo Appraisal Services we offer two types of home measurement services. Our home measurements and floor plans are legal documents that have many uses ranging from individual home sales to tax protests.
- Home Measurement: This is the most popular type of home measurement service requested to date. This service is designed to provide our clients with an accurate and affordable solution for determination of a home’s GLA (gross living area). This basic service can be instrumental in assisting homeowners or realtors with the listing of their homes. Knowing the correct GLA of your listing can save you time and money and help expedite the sale of your home with a savvy buyer!
- Floor Plan Recreation: Perhaps your needs are more comprehensive than a simple verification of the subject’s GLA? A Floor Plan Recreation is an accurate and affordable tool for marketing your home! The Floor Plans we provide show accurate GLA of the home with approximate locations of interior walls, doors, appliances and plumbing fixtures. The Floor Plans also illustrate basic room dimensions to give potential buyers an idea of each major room. This service can be very useful when attempting to sell your home or looking to make additions or changes.
