To determine square footage of a home does one include a heated, finished basement and/or a garage?I see listings for similar homes to mine and the square footage varies significantly from one to another. I have a nicely finished and heated basement and a nicely finished garage that has lots of storage and includes the laundry. Do those areas add to the square footage of the house for listing purposes? I imagine they certainly would be included in any insurance appraisal.February 01 2010 - Twin Peaks00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
