The importance of MLS & ANSI compliant measurements and floor plans for real estate listings

Updated: Dec 9, 2022

When it comes to real estate listings, accuracy and attention to detail is crucial. Accurate property measurements and detailed schematic floor plans can provide potential buyers with a clear understanding of the layout and dimensions of a property, allowing them to envision themselves living in the space.

At Top Tier Visuals, we specialize in providing fully ANSI and MLS compliant property measurements and detailed schematic floor plans for real estate listings. Working with multiple vendors can be time-consuming and inconvenient, which is why we offer a full-service, all-in-one solution for real estate listings. Our team is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and support, and we are committed to helping you make the most of your listings and maximize their potential. Whether you're a real estate agent, a homebuilder, or a property owner, we can provide the accurate and detailed measurements and floor plans you need to showcase your property in the best possible way.

But why is it important to have accurate property measurements and detailed schematic floor plans? First and foremost, it's required by law in the state of North Carolina. The North Carolina Real Estate Commission has established specific guidelines for the measurement of residential properties, which must be followed in order to be compliant with state regulations. Inaccurate measurements can result in penalties and fines for both the listing agent and the seller.

In addition to being required by law, accurate property measurements and detailed schematic floor plans provide numerous benefits to both agents and potential buyers. For agents, it can help to streamline the listing process and make properties more attractive to potential buyers. Accurate measurements can provide a more realistic representation of a property, allowing potential buyers to better understand the size and layout of a space. This can help to avoid misunderstandings and miscommunications about the size of a property, which can lead to time-consuming and costly disputes.

Here are just a few of the benefits that our clients have experienced:

  • Accurate square footage: One of the most important pieces of information for potential buyers is the square footage of a property. This helps them understand the overall size of the space and make informed decisions about whether it will meet their needs. However, measuring square footage can be a tricky and time-consuming task, especially in older homes with unique layouts. By using professional home measurements, you can be sure that the square footage listed on your MLS listing is accurate and compliant with ANSI standards.

  • Detailed floor plans: In addition to providing accurate square footage, professional floor plans also help potential buyers better understand the layout and flow of a property. These plans can include detailed information such as room dimensions, door and window locations, and even furniture placement. This level of detail can be incredibly useful for buyers who are trying to determine if a property will meet their needs and preferences.

  • Improved marketing: Professional home measurements and floor plans can also enhance the marketing of your listings. By providing detailed and accurate information, you can help potential buyers visualize themselves in the space and see the true potential of the property. This can be especially helpful for properties with unique or difficult-to-picture layouts. In addition, high-quality measurements and plans can also help your listings stand out in a crowded market and potentially attract more interested buyers.

  • Compliance with MLS rules: As mentioned earlier, the state of North Carolina requires that all MLS listings include accurate and compliant property measurements. By using a professional service like Top Tier Visuals, you can be sure that your measurements and plans meet these standards and avoid any potential issues or complications.
