What is a home measurement or floorplan service?
Floorplan services are just what they sound like: An appraiser measures the dimensions and area of your property, then draws a basic or highly detailed floorplan based on your requirements. The appraiser's report and floorplan is a document that can be used to prove the precise Gross Living Area (GLA), the total livable space, of your home. These services are helpful and sometimes essential when disputing property taxes or selling a property.
How does a home measurement service work?
During a home measurement or floorplan service, a certified appraiser takes measurements of your home with a measuring tool — generally a tape or laser measuring device. As they walk the home, they make note of the layout of the rooms and other features, like stairs, entryways, and fireplaces. They might sketch out the property. Then, the appraiser develops a report and a more detailed sketch showing the total square footage and the overall layout of the house. The finished report is a document that can be used to prove certain specs of your property — like the Gross Living Area (GLA) — on tax documents, home listings, and more.
When are measurement services necessary?
Real estate taxes
Tax records often reflect incorrect square footage because the values can come from many sources, and occasionally go unproven — meaning you may be paying for more square footage than you actually have! Unless an appraiser has recently performed a valuation on your property (after any renovation that may have affected square footage), you'll need an appraiser to perform a home measurement service before attempting to dispute your taxes. An appraiser will verify an accurate Gross Living Area (GLA) of your property so your taxes reflect your actual square footage — and you can stop overpaying.
Marketing a home or property
A measurement service can ensure that you're paid a fair price for your property. Square footage is one of the biggest elements potential buyers examine when purchasing a home — but since these values are often approximated rather than accurately measured, your home listing might show less Gross Living Area (GLA) than it actually has. An inaccurate GLA could potentially decrease the selling price of the home as well as the number of interested buyers. The only dependable method of using a definitive GLA when listing your property is to refer to a previous appraisal or home measurement service completed by a certified appraiser (after any updating that might have affected square footage).
Material for real estate professionals
To make sure that your client's property sells at a price that appropriately reflects market value, we recommend asking for a measurement of the property. Your clients, and potential buyers, will be grateful for your attentiveness, and you can rest assured knowing the GLA on your client's listing is a true representation of their home. A floorplan can also be a fantastic marketing tactic to interest potential buyers since they can view the layout and characteristics of the house before and after touring.
