What's the size of the finished area of this condo? It says 1,800 sq and 1,083 on the same page. Please clarify. Thanks.

The confusion in the size may be due to the unit being on multiple levels, as many of the units in the Gables are mulit-level. Regardless of what size is listed, you should go see the home to determine if the unit meets your needs- home layouts differ and sometimes a larger unit may not meet your needs because the layout may be "clumsy" or may not feel as open as you had hoped it to be.

The property tax records state that the living area sq. ft. is 1,083. This is the same size as the other units in that building and the largest in the community. Occasionally when websites are pulling information via syndication from the local MLS the information does not translate over correctly. Are you looking for a condo closer to 2,000 sq. ft?

I would be happy to assist you in finding a condo to meet your specific requirements in the area. Please feel free to call, text or email me.

Dear Bao,

The tax record shows 1800 square feet above grade which is accurate. Your taxable living area is 1083 square feet, you are only paying real esate taxes on the "Taxable" square footage and not the total square foot of the unit.

Another case would be single family and town homes, Maryland real estate taxes are paid on the above grade square footage and not the basements whether the basements are finished or not.
