Square Footage Verification
Square footage in a listing is usually an estimate. When an appraiser calculates square footage they use exact measurement from a site visit to the property to calculate square footage. Appraisers look at the gross living area (GLA) of a residential property when determining valuation.
“A picture is worth a thousand words.” Pictures are a required part of most appraisals. Photos can show condition, unique features of a property, detail reasons for cost adjustments to value. A property sketch provides a birds eye view of a property layout with measurements.
A pre-listing valuation provides a seller with an uninterested party value of your property so you can determine fair market value of your property. This appraisal type allows a seller to enter the sales market to prince their home and negotiate the sale with confidence.
