So going back, no two sets of properties will be the same based on these factors. As I stated earlier maybe on cookie cutter lots or subdivisions you could use sq ft as a price guide. You stick to your methods and I'll use mine, they've worked this long.....
Unless it is a track site in an area you know well then site visits are a must. However, commerical sites and estate lawns can be deceptive in size and I like to measure them with google or have some sort of tax info on the site before I visit it.
