What is a home measurement or floorplan service?

Home measurement services are just what they sound like: Based on what you need, an appraiser will measure your home's dimensions and square footage, then draw a basic or highly detailed floorplan. 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 often necessary when challenging property taxes or selling a property.

How does a home measurement service work?

During a measurement service, an appraiser measures the home or property with a measuring tool — generally a tape measure or laser measuring device. As they walk the property, they mark the layout of the rooms and other features, like closets, entryways, and pantries. They might draw a rough sketch of the property. Then, the appraiser writes up a report and a more detailed floorplan showing the total living area of the house and the general layout. The final product is a document that can be used to prove certain specs of your property — like the Gross Living Area (GLA) — on tax documentation, property listings, and more.

When is a home measurement or floorplan service necessary?

Real estate taxes

Property tax records frequently reflect inaccurate area of a property because the values can come from many sources, and sometimes go unverified — which means you may be paying for more square footage than you actually have! Unless a certified appraiser has recently completed 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 what you're taxed. An appraiser verifies the accurate Gross Living Area (GLA) of your property so your taxes can reflect the actual square footage — and you can stop overpaying.

Selling a home or property

A measuring service will secure fair market value for your house. Living space is one of the biggest factors potential buyers consider when purchasing a home — but since these values are frequently approximated rather than properly measured, your listing may reflect less Gross Living Area (GLA) than it can take credit for. An inaccurate GLA could potentially reduce the price of your home as well as the number of interested buyers. The only dependable method of using a precise GLA when listing your home is to reference a recent appraisal or measurement service executed by a certified appraiser (after any remodeling that may have affected square footage).

For agents

To ensure that your client's property closes at a price that correctly reflects true market value, we suggest seeking a home measurement of the property. Clients, and potential buyers, will appreciate your thoroughness, and you can be certain that the GLA on your client's listing is truly representative of their home. A measurement can also be a great marketing tool for attracting potential buyers since they can see the layout and characteristics of the house before and after touring.
