whatts some good online measuring tools to measure peoperty size ? thankss
I like my Garmin e-trex vista. I just push the button on the "area calculator" page and walk around the perimiter of whatever I'm measuring. Then push the button again to claculate. I have it set to give the measurement in square feet.
It's acurate unless you get next to a tall building or something that makes it loose a satellite. When it messes up it's really obvious because it's so far off.
I think you can get one for around $100 now.
Far as I can tell, closer to $200, I just bought a Keson RR318N 3-foot RoadRunner Measuring Wheel $50.00 includes shipping I'll just push the button on my pen!
I use Google Earth as well for free. You can buy an upgraded package as well that I suspect is much better.
This is what we use. It is free and easy to use. It is by Google. It is not Google Earth. It is Google Maps. It uses images from Google Earth.
It is called Daft Logic.
Google Maps Area Calculator Tool. Here is the link to try for yourself.
hope this helps.
I use Zillow to get an idea of the lot size.
Enter an address and it will tell you the lot size and the house size. Subtract the house from the lot and you have a rough estimate of yard size. Still have to deduct the concrete for the driveway, side walks, pools, etc. I usually don't do this, because I do not think the easement property is included in the lot size.
They also have an app for the iPhone.
i tried that site and the link shows up just fine but the site does nothing when you click on "search area" or try to login or create a free user name.
am i the only one??
This is the site I use for winter commercial lots, otherwise Google earth.
If this doesnt help, just go do a property walk around.
