Square footage is taken from outside measurements per ANSI (American National Standards Institute) guidelines, which are the guidelines to which HUD refers. Basements are defined as any level with any amount below grade; anything below grade labels the entire level basement. Finished rooms must be to the same level of finish as the rest of the home, be accessible through a continuous finished area, and on the same heating and/or cooling system. For homes where outside measurements are inaccessible, inside measurements are used, and an addition of .5’ is added for the outside wall. In rooms with sloping ceilings, the area measured is from where the ceiling is at least 5’ high, with 50% or more of that area being at least 7’ high. In rooms that are not square or rectangular, measurements are usually taken from the longest points.
Room sizes may be rounded to the nearest .5’. Bedrooms are measured excluding closets.
Kitchens are measured wall-to-wall and include the nook, if applicable. Condos: The measurement of condos is not covered under ANSI. Condos are measured from interior walls. All other rules referred to above for single-family homes are the same. Townhomes and other Attached Dwellings with a Lot and Block legal description: Attached dwellings are measured from the centerline between units. Exterior walls are measured from the exterior if accessible. If not accessible, we use inside measurements and then adjust for the width of the exterior wall. All other rules referred to above for single-family homes are the same. The square footage totals on the attached floorplan are estimations and should not be relied upon for any purpose other than marketing the property stated above. All measurements are believed to be accurate, but it is not uncommon for two professionals to come up with different figures. The floor plan is meant to show a general layout of the home and does not account for the walls’ thickness or other architectural features.
Outdoor areas: pens, runs, and arenas are measured to the best of our ability. This is not a survey and these areas are estimated.
