In today’s highly competitive real estate industry, there has never been a greater need for accurate reporting of a property’s true home measurement, as all too often the gross home measurement reported on public records differs from what actually exists. At Brookhaven Home Appraiser, our purpose is to give you an accurate home measurement that will assist as a solid and reliable source.
Size and value are inextricably linked, you may be leaving money on the table for your client if you list a home as being smaller than it actually is. On the flip side, if you market a home as being larger than it truly is, you may end up with an angry buyer or an appraisal that doesn’t come in at a value that will support the financing requirements of the transaction.
Real estate appraisers are the only professionals that are trained on how to properly measure a home. They are also the only group that can submit certified home measurements to have official government records changed. Brookhaven Home Appraiser has those qualifications.
Many do not realize that county tax records can have major discrepancies when it comes to the size of your home. This issue can arise from many different situations. First and foremost, county appraisers do not typically measure the inside of a residence. This means that any conversions, such as an enclosed attic or garage, may be missed completely. And it’s only worse with multi-story homes since the appraiser cannot see the layout of the 2nd or 3rd floor from outside. Newer homes are usually less susceptible to these issues because the developers and builders provide the county with floor plans during construction, but even then mistakes can and do happen.
At Brookhaven Home Appraiser, our home measurements and floor plans are legal documents that have many uses, ranging from individual home sales to tax appeals. Contact us today to find out the true size of your home.
