Turner Appraisal Co offers professional home measurement and high-quality floor plan services. Our team comprises Certified Appraisers and Home Measurement Specialists with over two decades of experience. Properly measuring a home is a crucial aspect of the appraisal and listing processes.

Why should you consider having your home measured? When an agent provides a square footage figure to buyers, sellers, fellow agents, appraisers, or in listings and advertisements, they are responsible for accuracy, regardless of any disclaimers. Relying solely on public records may not be sufficient, as the government is not responsible for providing precise square footage numbers in their records.

Assessor’s square footage figures can also vary widely, with different tax departments using various sources like builder-supplied data, floor plans, aerial photographs, homeowner submissions, or physical measurements, often lacking a standardized method. Depending on such variable and known-to-be inaccurate data is not advisable.

Even in the case of new homes, it’s essential to exercise caution, as builders may include disclaimers stating that they have not measured the square footage, and these figures should not be relied upon.

To distinguish yourself in the real estate industry, it’s crucial to provide accurate information. Automated valuation models (AVMs) may offer data, but it’s the licensed real estate professionals who can provide truly accurate and meaningful information. Pricing real estate should always be entrusted to licensed professionals rather than relying on computer programs. Using the same, notoriously inaccurate square footage data as everyone else can distort the market and potentially favor online services over professional expertise.

In the world of real estate, where information is invaluable, ensuring accuracy and relying on licensed experts remains paramount.
