When it comes to house measure, what exactly is getting measured?

Asked by William, Gallatin, TN Sat Jun 2, 2012

Are houses being measured by the perimeter? I'm basically curious to know if two level home is measured the same as a one level home.

Help the community by answering this question:


Homes are measured and marketed by the total amount of internal living area. The best way to measure total living area is to measure the dimensions of each room to calculate the room area and then add up the areas of each room for the total area. Unfinished areas of the home should be disclosed as such. Sometimes for a listing the living area published in the public records are used, but it is always a good idea to measure the actual area to make sure that the public records are correct.
