How to Calculate Acreage

The following information is provided to assist you in calculating acreage from lot size.

First, calculate the size of the lot. The image below shows the dimentions of a lot. In order to compute the acreage, you first have to calculate the total square footage of the lot.

In this example, 50 x 118 = 5900 total square feet.

Next, divide the total square feet by 43,560 to convert to acres. In this example, 5900 divided by 43,560 results in lot acreage of .135 acres.

If you are unable to determine the acreage of a property, please contact the assessor of that property's municipality for assistance or obtain from one of the other specified resources.

For more information, please refer to Knowledgebase article, How to Calculate Acreage.
