ANSI® QUIZ

Welcome to your ANSI ® QUIZ

How well do you know the ANSI® Standard?

Following any standard requires 100% adherence, you can’t use only the parts you like or agree with. ANSI® is an excellent resource and measurement guide. Make sure you follow it completely.

1. When you measure a home’s square footage, how do you measure the stairs?
2. When you measure rooms with sloped ceilings:
3. There is a finished bonus room above the garage. It is finished equally to the lower level, main finished living area; and, the space is accessible from a hallway adjoining the GLA. However, the space has a window air conditioner and no heating system. Such spaces are typical in the overall market. Do you include this space within the GLA calculations?
4. There is a finished office located inside the garage. It is finished the same as the main living area and is accessible from inside the garage only. It is on the same HVAC system as the main house. How would you count this space – as GLA or GBA?
5. All the measurements in this market area are rounded to the nearest one-half foot. Everyone reports it by the same method and there have been few questions about a square footage total within the local MLS system. Do they follow the ANSI® Guideline?
