If you are a Realtor in North Carolina, you are required to get each of your listings measured. You probably don’t enjoy measuring, but we do. All homes measured by our team are measured by licensed appraisers and certified home measuring specialists, using a precise laser measuring device.
Our team has measured over 20,000 listings in the Triangle area! When every square foot matters, you want to work with someone that will find every single one. Homes will be measured using the North Carolina Real Estate Commission guidelines, which will ensure 100% compliance for your advertised square footage. Your appointments will be set directly with you, with the sellers or through ShowingTime. Sketches will be delivered via the client panel as soon as they’re completed. Once you’ve approved payment, a pdf of your home sketch will be available for download.
We offer two options for our home measurement service:
In our experience, getting a listing measured is one of the places that tends to get skipped. We have received dozens of calls from Realtors that have done this- and found out too late that their advertised square footage wasn’t accurate. Using the tax records, an old appraisal, builder plans, or just using the seller’s best guess is the fastest way to get in trouble with the NCREC or be sued.
Builder plans are usually 5-10% off, and tax record measurements are many times just a guess based on what the outside of the house looks like. If you use an old appraisal – you’re putting your license and possibly tens of thousands of dollars on the line using a sketch done by a person you’ve never met. Even if you don’t use us to measure – getting your listings professionally measured is a great investment in protecting yourself!

Harmon Property Solutions is beyond the absolute best real estate photographer out there.... they are very professional, courteous, and reliable. I would recommend them to anyone needing professional photography and home measurements at a very fair price.
As you know, detached homes, townhome, and condo units are all measured differently here in North Carolina. We will make sure to measure each type correctly:
Measured to the outermost surface of the home, excluding unfinished areas like garages
Measured to the outermost surface, and 6″ into the common walls for interior units
Measured to the interior surface only – whether that is sheetrock, concrete, or glass
We carefully consider each room of a house to make sure it meets the criteria for living area. Sunrooms, bonus rooms, low ceilings, unusual heating sources, lack of windows, restricted access- each of these carries its own set of rules and regulations.
Our team is trained to sort this out and protect your interests. We have found this to be the most accurate way to get a measurement on a home.
We are committed to providing an excellent experience and it shows – Our team has serviced over 30,000 listings in the Triangle area!
