When you read a real estate listing, the square footage will only include living area. If you see "GLA" this means "Gross Living Area." It should only include the above grade living area and should not include the finished basement unless three of the four sides are above grade.

Seeing "GBA" stands for "Gross Building Area." This will include the square footage for all livable areas including the basement but not areas such as sheds or garages - since no one wants to actually "live" in those areas.

I hope that helps.

If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed; if and when you do list with a broker, ask your agent to post the listing, or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site.... ... more

Thanks for your responses. Now hope this helps others. Helpful background here: The buyer was intent on moving in prior to sale. We had representation (realtor) who felt that there were questions at the outset. The buyer pushed for a quick close and wanted to occupy prior to closing. Realtor strongly said no. Buyer was always in process of getting all involved the proper verification. She was always in process of faxing it and then blowing up when anyway tried to assist her in the process. She got an atty involved and his office pursued verification...we were operating in a very tight time frame per buyers request. She agreed to take paperwork to her atty, she finally gave a bank name, but was always running behind at work, running late, requesting additional information prior to close etc. In other words she kept stalling. We agreed to a dry-close because the money was in a cd and it was not going to arrive until the next day after the set closing. Then, there was an additional day...then the money finally hit her bank and she was having it wired to closing atty! This was 2 days after closing so all seemed well. Then the run around started again. Then her earnest check bounced (notification was not received until 6 days after closing). However she stayed in communication with atty and said the check may bounce because she couldn't get to bank etc. Her atty finally quit after she missed another deadline. This is all in a matter of about 10 days. She did not realize that a certified bank check was required. She was hoping to present a personal check & become a squatter in the house and wait for the legal system to catch up with her. The realtor did caution us on some items. But the buyer would turn around and fulfill different requirements or meet some requests etc. Too, parts of her story checked out and there was enough truth to make it seem questionably legit. Later it was found out the lady had a criminal history of NSF checks and obtaining property by bad check. Lessons learned: great to have a realtor - she saved us from the larger more costly issues-we lost hundreds & not thousands. Realtor advised us against moving out contents prior to date of closing, but we felt we would not have enough time...and we only left contents to stage house, we live out of state...Agree: we will not talk to another cash buyer without DEFINITE PROOF before we move a fraction of an inch. The realtor/atty were trying to prequalify/qualify the buyer...the main thing was this buyer was trying to get us to allow here to move in and place contents on site prior to close with hopes it appears that we would have to go through courts later to throw her out. Warning to others: give your realtor credit if they get not let anyone move in prior to close period!!!! The deal seemed too good to be true and it was. The buyer was a semi-professional she knew how to play on the emotions and mixed truth and lies to keep us off balance. Never let excitement get in the way of the logic of the is often best to let a problematic walk...not always, but it is sometimes best in the long run. Strongly consider a realtor. This one will be worth her money. Hope this assists someone else. Too, any suit would be small claims court folks. The buyer does work and a judgment to cover my moving expenses etc would help, but it would hopefully slow her from doing this to someone else. Other than that, lesson learned.Hope this helps others. ... more

Hi Sara,

A good way to guage your home's value other than getting a market analysis is to look at homes currently for sale. You can see homes in the price range of $225,000 to $250,000 at the link below. ... more
