Question About Measuring Square Footage
This may seem like a stupid question, but how exactly is a home's size measured? Does one just measure length and width of each room and add them up? Are things like bathrooms/hallways/open porches included in the final number? I ask this because the home I recently bought had an inflated size on the realtor's website/brochure (1600 square feet), the county tax records lists only 1200 square feet, and according to my measurements the truth lies somewhere in between. Thanks.
