INACCURACY EQUALS $$$
A recent home measure ordered by a buyer after move-in revealed an error in the MLS listing of 213 square feet. Based on the "price per square foot" quoted in the listing, the buyer over-paid $23,861. Would she have bought the home had this been discovered prior to closing? Maybe, maybe not. Either way, barring any unreported settlement, it exposes 2 brokerage firms, 2 BICs and 2 brokers to a lawsuit and disciplinary action from the NCREC.
Listing and Due Diligence measuring services are prioritized for your convenience.
If you're fortunate enough to be a very busy broker, it's often difficult to find time to perform the home measurement for your listing, or the property is a complicated measure. How many times have you used figures from old MLS listings, or from county tax records? With that question still being pondered, how many disciplinary notices have you read in the NCREC Bulletin on Brokers using these same methods for acquiring square footage?
And wouldn't it be great if prospective home buyers could simply go to your web site, or call your office, and request a floor plan for the home they're interested in? You just email our professionally prepared PDF property measurement report straight to them.
As a home buyer, it's always difficult to decide which homes to visit based solely on one or two exterior photographs and short paragraph from a local buyer's guide. Home buyers are busy people too, often coming in from out-of-town, and don't want to waste time looking at homes that will not suit their needs.
Sellers may furnish our reports as handouts during showings or as supplements in brochures of your property. Our more detailed reports will weed out "just lookers" and bring a better informed prospect as a potential buyer!
Providing accurate information just for peace-of-mind, or for property tax disputes. County tax records are rarely accurate when it comes to the size of your home!
Providing accurate measuring services for buyers who want to be sure they're getting exactly what they will be paying for at closing.
