Exact 1 acre HERE
I said that I was being very generous with my calculations, I just wanted to show that $25 is way to cheap for a lot that size.

EDIT, did you mean that one acre lot isn't actually a whole acre? Sorry if I missed that

Yes, usually they use a "Builder's Acre" which is 40,000 square feet. They do that for the sake of simplicity.
