Is your Condominium in Philly Really 1248 Square Feet?

Filed under: General Real Estate,Real Estate: Condominiums — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 3:59 pm

As a longtime realtor in Center City, I am often confronted with conflicting information given to me by other realtors, information on fact sheet or various sources of information on the internet.

One of the most common variables I come across is the difference is square footage calculations or claims. And I think it is important to ask yourself where this information is coming from – the seller, the seller’s appraiser, your appraiser, the realtor, city hall, the developer, your own measurements, or perhaps the man on the moon?

Since you might come up with nine different calculations of square footage, I would suggest that the best source would be from your own measurements. And know that variables do come into play here:
Is the square footage advertised for say a Rittenhouse Square condominium including staircases? Closets?
Does it include the deck or the patio of any given Old City loft?

     

Do the measurements go from “outside of drywall to outside of drywall”, or is the calculation coming from exterior wall to exterior wall of your Philadelphia condo?

You can always go to online to check city records. That information is usually garnered from the architectures renderings when the project was developed/converted into condos in Philadelphia.
