Thread: Can I bother a math wizard for a calculation ?

    Can I bother a math wizard for a calculation ?

    I was fine with simple Siphering, when it came to if two cars are travelling at 100k and one has drag from a bad wheel bearing and and and then id rather go ride my motorcycle.

    Working seven days a week for months to get my families home ready to be sold, The lot is the largest in the area which translates to more being allowed to go on the property. PLus it has mature trees, privacy and a view so its special. Ive looked at 100 listings with postage size lots or lots where you are viewed by people both sides and behind and that is the norm. Ive told real estate already after viewing 100 listings its the largest lot and most recent sales 120 deep was the average some were less.


    This is from the survey and id like to calculate square feet. Anyone up to that? if not all fine realize its someones time.

    Friend said I need Pie, I said apple or blue berry?

    Thanks in advance

    I would volunteer to do it the old fashioned way, but there are all sorts of handy, online calculators, that do the work for you.

    50x188= 9400 sq ft.

    50 x 15 x 52 triangle = 374 sq ft.

    approximately 9776.5 sf

    The error being doing inch to decimal conversions in my head, which doesn't work so well). I used an online trapezoid area calculator. You could also make it into a rectangle and triangle for easy hand calculation.

    You can get the exact square footage and other statistics from the local jurisdiction by providing the identifying number for the property/parcel. You want the recorded number because that's what's generally required for the listing. Be sure to pick up the zoning classification, too. The local jurisdictions may even have this information online in county mapping, etc...that's available to me here and I've used it to setup my preliminary drawings for the future shop building options

    For listing valuation, a good, experienced Realtor can take comparable scales and adjust for property size, potential, etc. Given the current market, you absolutely do not want to undershoot the initial ask and will hopefully get well above it, depending on the state of the local real estate feeding frenzy where the property is located.

    thanks have an agent friend with 45 years experience, in the office at 12. Developer and manages over 20 properties. Thanks on the city thing had been told that on another aspect and you are right things have to be exact

    Ive saved over 100 sales in the area plus all photos inside. I wanted to see how all do renos and those photos have tons of info to me. Most stuff now going for at least 200k over asking from the last stuff I looked at then depends on who is doing the listing, I think that under listing crap has stopped or slowed down. Its close to schools of diff types and the newest state of the art hospital. Main thing to me is the lot.

    Thanks on the calculation info as well

    Regardless of what you think your home and property are valued at, its really up to the market and the realtor to price it, and buyers to give you their offer. If its priced too high, it just wont sell.

    Though, the market is crazy right now. And what do I know!

    I would just round it off to 50x200 and assume it had 90 degree corners. so 10,000 square feet give or take. The trig is going to be difficult since you do not have 90 degree corners.
    Are there any zoning restrictions that change at 10,000 square feet? If not 10,00 is good enough

    I just realized it is a trapazoid(maybe), if the long sides are parallel which is doubtful to me, but we do not know the back length or angles involved.

    My math:

    50' x 187.833' = 9391.65 sq ft for the 'easy' part.

    triangle:
    side 1 = 203.291' - 187.833' = 15.548' --
    side 2 = 50'
    side 3 = 52.291'
    total linear feet: 117.839'

    117.839 / 4 = 29.437'

    29.437 squared = 866.537 sq ft for the triangle

    866.537 + 9391.65 =

    10258.187
    total square feet...

    Do it the easy way.
    Do the rectangle 50" x 187.833 = 9391.65 (previous post)
    Now the triangle. Sense it is a right triangle.
    Base times height 50 x15.548 (yes that is a rectangle,) now divide by two.
    Same answer and can be gotten close to in the head.

    For general conversation, 10K square feet (quarter acre) is fine. But for a real estate listing...it has to match the number in the official records.
