    Just under 44,000. If you do a search on here I have seen it brought up a couple of times on the exact amount.

    43,560 is correct, but in real estate, for some strange reason, they use 40,000. So in a half acre zone, the lots are 20,000 sq feet.

    I think it's because they take out an average mean for structure space. This leaves the amount (approximate) of property that is open on a lot.
