Home Buyer FAQ: Does this Homes’ Square Footage Include the Garage?
Functionality and whether the space is liveable should matter more but another frequently asked question I get from middle Georgia buyers is, “Does this homes’ square footage include the garage?”. Most often, the answer is NO!
- Space is heated/cooled by a conventional system
- Has finished construction (materials accepted for interior construction)
- Directly accessible from another finished area
On rare occasions, such as when the attached garage has been legally (with permits) converted into a liveable space it should be documented, the homes’ square footage re-assessed by a licensed appraiser, and the new space acknowledged by the county tax assessor.
