Value Bomb: Calculating Square Footage
Quick value bomb for you today about why every inch of calculating square footage matters when selling your house. Here’s why… Let’s say you think you have a 4,000 square foot house so you go with that number. But in reality, your home is 4,100 square feet, so an extra 100 square feet. You might think “what’s the big deal? That’s not a lot”. But, it can be huge. Especially, if values in your community are trading at a high price.
Let’s say that’s $1,000 per square foot. That would be an extra $100,000 in value to your bottom line that you may not have known was there if you’re calculating square footage correctly. So it’s a really good idea to get your property taped before you put it on the market. Especially if you have an older home that has been remodeled or reconfigured over the years. Tax records aren’t always accurate.
