Standards You Can Count On!

All our measurements are taken in accordance with the Residential Square Footage Guidelines issued by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission. Measurements are based on the area within the allowed perimeter of the home or condo and do not include decks, patios, garages, “open to below” areas, and areas with floor to ceiling heights below five feet.  These items can be designated however as well.  We stay up-to-date with the guidelines so that you can be assured that the product you are receiving is accurate.

Measurements are taken by hand using a laser measure and immediately input into computer software for precise accuracy on site. All square footage is also calculated in the software so that there is no need to calculate the spaces by hand. Our service is about giving you peace of mind as an agent knowing that the measurements you receive are the most accurate that you can have.

Just tell us what you need and we will handle the rest.  We appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.

Why Is Home Measuring Important Anyway?

Real estate agents are responsible to attest to the square footage numbers they represent to buyers in MLS and in other advertising media. Most realtors do not want the liability or work involved to measure the home themselves. Tax records are vulnerable to being incorrect. The penalty for misrepresenting square footage can be stiff.

For sellers, you want the most you can derive from your asset, your real estate investment
Buyers want and need to know what they are paying for. Pricing today rides on dollars per square foot often as a benchmark. Buyers also LOVE floor plans they can play with in their spare hours determining where furnishings will be placed, etc.

If a home in the Charlotte area appraises for an average of $125 per heated square foot on a 1200 s.f home and there is a mistake of 50 square feet represented, that equates to $3,750. No one wants that kind of mistake to deal with. Much easier to be sure.  Call Alexis Gray today at Grayscale Services for your next Charlotte area home measurement.
