Eric Biskamp Appraisal
SQUARE FOOTAGE MEASUREMENTS: When you need a Living Area measurement of a home, contact me at Mail@EricBiskamp.Com. Give me the property address, as well as the Client name to be put on the Measurement & Invoice, and I will respond back the same day.
Let me know how to access home. We can meet or I can utilize your combination keybox or the Realtor's blue Supra keybox. You'll have your certified result within 24 hours after appointment.
Let me know your preferred appointment days/times and I will confirm. WEEKDAY appointments begin at 10:00 am, with last appointment starting at 3:30 pm. I sometimes take a WEEKEND appointment if needed.
Note: I measure only Houses, Duplexes, and Townhomes. I do not measure Condominiums.
I serve Dallas, Collin & Rockwall Counties, and the east half of Denton County (east of I-35E). I can help you find appraisers who service Tarrant, Kaufman, Hunt, and west Denton Counties.
The final fee (within ranges below) depends upon overall complexity and distance traveled.
$130 - $140 for One-Story home 0-2000 Sq Ft
$140 - $150 for One-Story home 2001-3000 Sq Ft
$150 - $160 for One-Story home 3001-4000 Sq Ft
Ask for fee quote on One-Story homes over 4000 Sq Ft
$150 - $180 for Two-Story home 0-4000 Sq Ft
$160 - $190 for Two-Story home 4001-4500 Sq Ft
$170 - $200 for Two-Story home 4501-5000 Sq Ft
$180 - $210 for Two-Story home 5001-5500 Sq Ft
Ask for fee quote on Two-Story homes over 5500 Sq Ft (and Three-Story homes), as most custom homes tend to get far more complex with greater size. I limit my measurement service to homes under 6500 Sq Ft.
Fee includes round-trip drive, measurement of 1-3 stories, computer input, generation of appraiser certified document, and delivery via email.
There is no additional fee for measuring attached/detached Garages or Carports, and only a small additional fee for measuring a Guest House or Guest Quarters. Please note that these aforementioned areas, as well as any Below Grade Areas (like Partial or Full Basements) are NOT included in the Gross Living Area, per ANSI guidelines and the guidelines of most government mortgage institutions.
Fee can be paid by Check, Cash, Paypal, Venmo, Popmoney, Square, Chase QuickPay or other on-line options. Payment is expected at the time of measurement, or within 7 days if Client is away. Result can only be owned/utilized if full payment is made.
More than 80% of homes are larger than Tax Records indicate, and even a foot or two can make a measurement worth it - yet most often there is much more! Remember, additional square footage makes a property more attractive to Buyers and adds market value!
