In today’s highly competitive real estate industry, there has never been a greater need for accurate reporting of a property’s true living area as all too often the gross living area reported on public records differs from what actually exists.
As a Realtor, the MLS as well as your Broker-In-Charge requires you report an accurate and detailed summary of your listing when you enter them into the MLS so there are any number of reasons to get a professional measurement on your listings. The home may be a large or complex measurement assignment that you’re simply not comfortable measuring yourself. As an agent, you don’t want to be held liable for the square footage as listed in the MLS.
Here at Chicagoland Appraisals, we offer two types of home measurement services. Our home measurements and house plans are legal documents that have many uses ranging from individual home sales to real estate assessor appeals.
- Home Measurement: This is the most popular type of home measurement service requested to date. This service is designed to provide our clients with an accurate and affordable solution for determination of a home’s GLA (gross living area). This basic service can be instrumental in assisting homeowners or realtors with the listing of their homes. Having the correct GLA in your listing can save you time and money and help expedite the sale of your home!
- House Plans: Perhaps your needs are more comprehensive than a simple verification of the subject’s GLA? A House Plan is an accurate and affordable tool for marketing your home! The Floor Plans we provide show the accurate gross living area of the home with the approximate location of interior walls, doors, appliances and plumbing fixtures. The Floor Plans also illustrate basic room dimensions to give potential buyers an idea of each major room. This service can be very useful when attempting to sell your home or looking to make additions or changes.
