What exactly does the square footage number mean? Is it the area of the entire home minus area of garage?

in Florida we consider the air-conditioned square footage. Then there is the total which is everything under roof including the pool cage.

The total square footage includes all areas under the roof (including the garage and covered porches).

The square footage number you see most commonly is for the actual number of square feet that are heated and cooled.

You should always clarify with your agent how much the price of the home is-- per HEATED square foot.
