Square Deal

Square Deal

Don't be fooled by square footage number!

In many buyers’ minds, bigger is better, which is why they pay special attention to “square footage.” Sellers may want to appeal to buyers’ interest in this regard  by adopting the measurement technique used by tax authorities.

This typically involves measuring the home’s exterior dimensions and multiplying length times width. However, sellers and buyers alike should understand that this method does not take into account interior space lost to wall thicknesses, as well as largely unusable space lost to stairwells, utility rooms, closets, etc. 


Everyone’s interests are better served by taking a closer look at floor plans and how one livable interior space relates to another. This is best seen in a floor-plan drawing or video tour.


First impressions are important when marketing property. Most buyers view photos, videos, and listings of the square footage of rooms prior to deciding which properties they want to visit. I have a history of creating unique, individualized marketing plans.

HINT: A small room with many windows can often seem more appealing than a larger space with none.
