Adjusted Square Footage For Valuation

Adjusted Square Footage For Valuation

ADJUSTED SQUARE FEET - Why does the measurement of my house size differ from the actual square foot measurements?

We use the "adjusted square foot" ("Adj.Bldg.S.F.") measurement of a building to determine the value of your property. A real estate agent or a fee appraiser may use the actual square feet -- unadjusted -- which usually refers only to living space or air-conditioned space, and may result in measurements higher or lower than the numbers we use. Adjusted square feet are measured from the outside walls of the building, and include garages, open patios, covered entries, second floors, carports, and so forth. These parts of a building are calculated using a fraction of their actual square feet to determine the adjusted square feet. This ensures all properties in Broward are measured and assessed on an identical basis. (Note: We use the actual square foot measurements for land size.)
