Looking for square footage for your home?

One of the best metrics for comparing the value of one home to another is size.  However, in the state of Georgia, unless the seller has had someone measure their house, many times square footage is unknown.  As agents, not knowing square footage makes it challenging when listing a home.  We would recommend having a professional come measure it so that we can accurately quote square footage in the FMLS systems.  If a seller doesn’t want to do that, many systems default the square footage to what the tax records have….which in a very large majority of cases is incorrect.  Further, we need to know the square footage of the comparables we’re using to help determine a list price.

As of today, I can now offer my clients a tool that will allow me to search the appraisal database for square footage.  I will be able to retrieve the appraisals on record and look at the house size, and in some case the floor plan.  This is just one of the tools I use to better serve my clients.

If you or anyone you know is looking to buy or sell in the Atlanta market, please have them give me a call.
