Post 2/3/17 Square Footage Reminder

The correct way square footage should be entered is explained below 

  • Above ground is anything above grade/ground level that is finished.  
  • Below grade is anything below grade level that is finished including any portion of that property whether it is 1 foot or 10 feet under ground – which means walk out basements should be included in below grade.  

We are using the ANSI guidelines to be more consistent across our listings.   

Above Grade Finished SqFt (approx) = Finished above-grade* areas only. The above-grade finished square footage of a house is the sum of finished areas on levels that are entirely above grade.

*Attic space should not be included in square foot fields. It can be noted in the Public Remarks Field.

**Note: Definition is based on the ANSI Standards for measuring Square Footage for single-family residential buildings. When considering Above and Below Grade for Bi-Level or Split-Level style homes, local practices, may differ. Click here for the ANSI Standards

Below Grade Finished SqFt (approx) = Finished square footage below grade/ground level. The below-grade finished square footage of a house is the sum of finished areas on levels that are wholly or partly below grade. Include the finished part of any basement space in this field.
