    At on time I came across a computer program that you could type in an address and it would show you the property lines and tell you what the square footage of the property was, but now I can seem to stumble upon it again...Does anybody know of any programs such as this or was I dreaming lol. Any info is appreciated Thanks!

    zillow and your county ext. website will tell you the sq. footage. But it does not show you the property lines.

    If you just need the total sf of the lot, use your local CAD website. If you want to be able to highlight and measure areas for mulch or grass, use www.goilawn.com. I just started using it this year, and it saves me tons of time and money.

    Go to your cities website and see if they have a "G.I.S. Service." I believe it is short for "Global Information System', or satellite....G.I.S.

    This should show property lines and allow you to measure.
