Are you relying on public records for your marketing strategy? Did you know most public records sketchers never get inside the home they are measuring?

If your market indicates 2,000 square foot homes are selling for $100 per square foot, and you're using inaccurate and often outdated public records for your marketing plan, well it could cost you thousands of dollars if the measurements are off by 5, 10 or even 15% or more! It is not uncommon in our research to find public records data to vary by double digits!

In addition to the appraisal and consulting services of Louisville Appraisals, we also offer our clients professional home measuring services. Our certified professionals use high-tech laser measuring devices along with software systems to calculate your home's correct size. Your computer generated report will arrive as a PDF file and be ready to insert into your personalized marketing materials.

We adhere to the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI) standard for calculating square footage. ANSI Z765 is applicable to the measurement of detached single-family residential homes with open space on all sides. It can also be applied to attached single-family units such as row houses or townhouses.

The ANSI standard is the most widely recognized method for the calculation of square footage, and you can be assured that our professionals will "get it right" the first time. Marketing a home without the correct square footage can cost you thousands of dollars, and paying taxes on a home's incorrect square footage can add up to hundreds of dollars in overpayments!

Professional measurement services pricing is based on the size of the property and the complexity of the floorplan. Our plans are affordable and will save you money!
