What is a measurement or floorplan service?
A measurement service is just what it sounds like: Based on your needs, an appraiser will measure your property's dimensions and square footage, then draw a basic or highly detailed layout. The appraiser's report and floorplan is a form that can be used to prove an accurate Gross Living Area (GLA), the total livable area, of your home. These services are useful and often necessary when disputing property taxes or selling a property.
How does a home measurement or floorplan service work?
During a home measurement or floorplan service, an appraiser measures the home or property with a measuring tool — either a tape measure or laser measuring device. As they walk the home, they observe the layout of the rooms and other features, like stairs, patios, and pantries. They may sketch out the property. Then, the appraiser types up a report and detailed floorplan showing the total area of the home and the overall layout. The result is a document that can be used to prove certain details about your property — like the Gross Living Area (GLA) — on tax documentation, home listings, and more.
When do I need a floorplan service?
Disputing property taxes
Property tax records often reflect incorrect area of a property because the values can come from many sources, and sometimes go unverified — meaning you may be paying for more space than you actually have! Unless an appraiser has recently completed an evaluation on your property (after any remodeling that might have affected square footage), you'll need an appraiser to perform a measurement service before attempting to challenge what you're taxed. An appraiser determines the accurate Gross Living Area (GLA) of your property so your taxes reflect your actual square footage — and you can stop paying more than your property is worth.
Marketing a home or property
A measuring service can ensure that you're paid fair market value for your home. Area is one of the biggest factors potential buyers examine when purchasing a house — but since square footage values are often approximated rather than properly measured, your property listing might show less Gross Living Area (GLA) than it can take credit for. An inaccurate GLA could potentially decrease the price of your home as well as the number of potential buyers. The only sure method of using an accurate GLA when listing your home or property is to reference a recent appraisal or home measurement service completed by a certified appraiser (after any renovation that may have affected square footage).
For real estate professionals
To make certain that your client's home closes at a price that accurately reflects market value, we recommend requesting a floorplan service for the property. Clients, and potential buyers, will appreciate your thoroughness, and you can be certain that the GLA on your client's listing is a true representation of their home. A floorplan can also be a fantastic marketing tool for getting potential buyers interested because they can view the layout and details of the property before and after touring.
