    How to you measure a FLATHOUSE area

    I use to heard 2BHK flat at 20L OR 50L. I really dont understand how people measure the FLAT by calculating no of room. If some one say 2 BHK * 16L they feel its very cheap.
    But I believe that we should not consider the room instead we should look for the carpet area. How much SQFT you are exactly getting. A 2BHK flat can be made using 600SQFT and also using 1200SQFT carpet area.
    Even in the case of rental too this above logic applies. I have seen broker saying that 2 BHK house. But eventually when you see the house the room size is not even 10*10SQFT.
    EX: Now many builders are selling at low price but the fact is that they have reduce the Carpet area... So we cant say that they are selling cheap/discount.
    Dont just think on this rethink...

    The super built up area is a lot of BS and there is no consistent formula. Builders charge super built up even if the building does not have large common areas or parking or garden etc. and they usually add 30-30% of 'loading'. In Mumbai, expect 50% or more added to carpet area for new construction. So 1000 sq. feet carpet is called 1500 super-built up, and they use the word 'loading' to describe the ratio. In the above example, the broker or builder will tell you 'loading is approx 33%' (500 sq feet loading in a 1500 sq feet flat) but in reality it is 50% of carpet area (500 sq feet tacked on 1000 sq feet carpet).

    I advice that you actually take a measuring tape and roughly measure the size of the rooms just to make sure that carpet sq feet numbers are accurate. Most people negotiate on the 'rupees per square feet' instead of the 'actual square feet' for an apt.

    Dear metroplots,

    Definitely the number of rooms matter for any family. Some may like large rooms and more may be content with even 10x10 ft. rooms because it gives privacy to the people. The room should not be too small say 8x8 or 8x9 ft. etc. It is better that upto 900 sq. ft. one can look for 2 bed, 2 toilet flats, For 1000 sq. ft and above one can look for 3 bed, 3 toilet flats. Over 1750 sq. ft. one can look at 4 bed, 4 toilet flats. It is preferable that equal number of toilets as the number of bed rooms are thought of.
    In the case of 1000 sq. ft. flats, 3 bed, one can go in for 2 shelves say 1 to 1.25 ft. depth, 2.5 ft. wide rather than one large 4 ft. wide one. Better to go for cudappa good finish slabs rather than cement slabs. Depending on the fund availability, one can go in for wooden doors or PVC doors for the shelves. Please insist on PVC doors for the toilet doors. Go for additional electrical points and AC provision ( plug point and window modn. in case of window AC. Though one may not put the AC soon after the possession, these can be useful any time later. Put 15 Amps plug in Kitchen, in all bed rooms, dining hall, living room etc. at the time of construction itself. In todays, frequent power cut situation, one can opt to put a 200 litre storage tank in kitchen at a level below roof as well as atleast in one toilet. Of course, these also can be done by the owner a little later, but better to do on taking the possession. These are based on my experience in living in different flats for over 30 years.

    This is a typical marketing strategy. They tells 2-3 bedroom flat * XYZ Laks. And customer also tune the song in same tone. Customer does not understand the different between 100/1000 SQFT. What a IDIOTIC view.

    Carpet area vs super built up area

    Dear all, Today I have checked up a large project at Maramalianagar from the web site of Ha....... Go........and the rate is Rs. 2950/sq. ft. which may come down if negotiated and this builder offers almost 77% to 79% of carpet area of the saleable area as I could calculate from their different plans of 3 bed flats. A reputed builder and the carpet area is almost 10% higher than what most builders give at about 70%. This in effect means a 10 % reduction in price by a higher carpet aea one gets. Further reductions can be based on one's ability to negotiate. However the location is a little away from the main city centre.

    Dear nikhilparmar1985, I presume, by -actual gross area, you mean the -plinth area, including the walls thickness but excluding the common area- I feel, 80% is some what low. It should be atleast 88% if we consider the wall area at max. of 12%. More views please?
