Where can I find the square footage for my house?
There is a tag on the outside of your home. It is like a mattress tag.
Usually the builder, when they built the home, submit the info to city or county. We call them county records. You can go down and see for your self, or you can go on Zillow and hope they got it right.
How accurate are they? is another question.
When a home is built, specs are done and contractors are asked to follow the specs.
Let say the slab is supposed to be poured for a 2000 square foot home.
However the day they poured it was hangover day for the contractor. The forms were a foot short.
The cement pour happens and one foot short by 40 foot wide and 40 less square feet.
Back in my days of construction we saw it happen all the time.
Appraisers can measure your home to get your square footage.
Builder or Assessor square footage is a guesstimate, but it is what most of us go by.
Don't forget to vote best answer for those who give the best answer.
