What are floorplan services?

Floorplan services are just what they sound like: Based on what you want, an appraiser will measure the property's dimensions and square footage, then draw a basic or highly detailed floorplan. The appraiser's report and floorplan is a form that can be used to prove the precise Gross Living Area (GLA), the total livable space, of your home. These services are useful and often necessary when challenging property taxes or selling a property.

How does a home measurement or floorplan service work?

During a home measurement service, a certified appraiser takes measurements of your property with a measuring tool — either a tape measure or laser measuring device. As they move around the house, they mark the layout of the rooms and other features, like stairs, hallways, and pantries. They may draw a rough sketch of the property. Then, the appraiser types up a report and a more detailed sketch showing the total living area and the overall layout of the house. The final product is a document that can be used to prove certain specs of your property — like the Gross Living Area (GLA) — on tax documentation, home listings, and more.

When is a home measurement or floorplan service needed?

Disputing real estate taxes

Property tax records frequently reflect the wrong square footage because the values can come from many sources, and sometimes go unproven — which means you may be paying for more square footage than you actually own! Unless a certified appraiser has executed a recent evaluation or home measurement service on your property (after any updating that may have affected square footage), you'll need an appraiser to perform a home measurement service before contesting what you're taxed. An appraiser will establish an accurate Gross Living Area (GLA) of your property so your taxes reflect the actual square footage — and you can stop overpaying.

Putting your home up for sale

A measurement service can secure a fair price for your house. Living space is one of the most important factors potential buyers look for when purchasing a house — but since these values are frequently approximated rather than properly measured, your home listing may show less Gross Living Area (GLA) than it actually has. An inaccurate GLA not only reduces the potential selling price for your home, but possibly even the number of interested buyers. The only sure method of using a precise GLA when listing your property is to refer to a previous appraisal or home measurement service performed by an appraiser (after any updating that may have affected square footage).

Material for agents

To make certain that your client's property sells at a price that appropriately reflects true market value, we suggest seeking a measurement of the property. Clients, and especially potential buyers, will be grateful for your eye for detail, and you can rest assured knowing the GLA on your client's listing is a true representation of their home. A floorplan can also be a great marketing tactic for attracting potential buyers since they can see the layout and details of the house before and after a walkthrough.
