There's only one way to know the official square footage on a Vancouver Condo

Ian Watt video blogs about how some condos list an incorrect square footage on the MLS and there is only one way to find the official square footage of a Vancouver condo, thats on the official strata plan in the land titles office. If you want to voice your opinion or if you don't care for Ian's comments please email your feedback to ianwatt@ianwatt.ca and visit http://www.ianwatt.ca/RealEstateVideos for all the Ian Watt Real Estate Video Blogs.

Ian Watt: Hi Good Afternoon. It's Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. I am doing a deal this week and the square footage posted on the MLS is totally off compare to what its actually is. There is only one way you can actually find out the square footage I definitely write it in to every contract of any condo. It's not from the developers disclosure statement. It's not from the developer's marketing information. It is from this land title office. It's the official strata plan which has the signature of the superintendent up in the corner. So that's one thing you have to be mindful of. You have to make sure you're looking at the right document to know you're getting the right square footage. My name is Ian Watt. If you want to discuss more about writing an offer and getting the appropriate square footage. You can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have a great day!
