Math compass with blue print like paper under the compass

  • builder appraiser
  • tax records 
  • possibly owner records

Which one is right, and which one is best? The official figure is the one listed in the tax records; any other figure must be documented by a builder’s floor plan, an appraisal, or an official floor plan prepared by a company for a fee.

If your house has been remodeled and you’re planning to sell, you may want to confirm that the official record matches your actual house and update if required. Most lenders will require an appraisal, which will verify the figures you’ve used, so be accurate and keep records to make the most of your sale.
