    Use findlotsize.com. I believe you can calculate the area in acres or square feet.

    What happened to using a wheel and then multiply length X width?

    HEY! its 2013! lol but seriously I need to pick one up, that is the way it should be done. I was going on my first estimate and just wanted to get a quick size of the property.

    Your local gis service provided by most areas will allow you to not only figure the square footage, but also to look at what was paid for the property, the taxes on it, and a satellite view as well. That gives you a good insight into the maximum price point. You also can look at houses and lots nearby to get a feel for the community; however, none of this will compare to an actual visit to the property and those nearby.

    There is "go Ilawn", look them up on facebook if you like. I've looked into them but never pulled the trigger, interesting concept but like someone else said, there is no substitute for standing on the property.
