A floorplan is an essential tool in various real estate scenarios for several reasons. Here are 3 key reasons why you need a floorplan:

  1. Accuracy of Square Footage: Tax records may not always provide accurate information about the square footage of a property. Inaccurate measurements can lead to misconceptions about the actual size of the property. A floorplan, on the other hand, provides precise measurements and layout details of each room, including dimensions and proportions.
  2. Out-of-State Buyers: For out-of-state buyers, visiting a property in person may not always be feasible due to geographical constraints. In such cases, a floorplan becomes invaluable as it offers a virtual representation of the property’s layout. Buyers can get a comprehensive understanding of the property’s flow, room arrangement, and overall structure from the comfort of their own location.
  3. Furniture Placement and Compatibility: Another crucial aspect for potential buyers is understanding whether their furniture will fit and suit the property. A floorplan provides a detailed overview of the rooms, including measurements, doorways, and windows. Buyers can then compare these dimensions with the measurements of their furniture to assess compatibility.
  4. Pricing: If any addition was not accounted for in the tax record square footage, you may be losing out on money in selling your home. It’s always smart to have it measured to make sure you’re getting the most out of you $ per Sq Ft.
