Gray Scale Measuring Services provide agents protection.


According to the NCREC, all measurements must be presented accurately with each transaction. If the Agents measurements are not accurate, the Agent can be subject to disciplinary action from the NCREC. Agents who rely on old Tax Records, Building Plans, Appraisals, and Previous Measurements put themselves in jeopardy of disciplinary action from the Commission. Tax Records are hardly ever correct and typically do not reflect an accurate measurement of the property.

One of the purposes of a Building Plan is to serve as a guideline and resource for the construction.  Throughout the construction process, revisions to the original drawings can happen. Things change, walls move, issues have to be fixed. As a result, building plans and floor plans can be entirely different once construction is completed.

Appraisals can certainly be another cause for concern when seeking accurate measurements. Unfortunately even a licensed real estate appraiser can provide inaccurate measurements.  As with anything, a second opinion is always beneficial. This year alone Gray Scale has disputed five appraisals that were not accurate.

Agents also take on the responsibility and remedy for inaccurate measurements by paying out of pocket. There is a way to protect you from the NC Real Estate Commission and disciplinary action, Gray Scale Measuring Services.
