My question involves real estate located in the State of: PA
I'm in the process of listing my house using a flat-fee listing service and I need to know the square footage of the house for the listing. I was under the impression when I bought the house that it was around 1,800 sq/ft, but today I measured all of the rooms and came to about 1,300 sq/ft. Zillow has it at 1,883 which is what I thought it was.
I don't want to misrepresent the square footage, but I don't want to lowball myself either. Is Zillow accurate (I don't know how they get their numbers)? Would it be safe for me to list it as 1,883? Or, am I overthinking it and it doesn't really matter?
I'll note that all the houses on this particular street are just about the same except that many people have added additions and/or converted closets to bathrooms, etc. Zillow has them at between 1,300 to 2,100 sq/ft.
Any way I can tell for sure?
