If the White House was for sale there would be marketing advertising its’ size and there would be the local Governments’ record of its’ size. The two measurements are not always the same. If the White House pays a property tax, it is in the local Governments’ interest to know exactly how many taxable square feet are in that house. Sometimes through haste, neglect, or error, homes are listed on government rolls at far less or more square footage than actually exist in the home. With less square footage than actual either the government catches it and forces a seller payment on sale or it errantly passed on to another unsuspecting buyer. With more square footage than actual on the tax rolls, the government doesn’t really care to catch it and may have a grandfather clause on rebate of over-payment.
Bureaucratic headaches happen. Please call me to for a copy of your tax record or for a square foot comparison to similar models in your neighborhood. Dennis Bell 703-928-4428 firstname.lastname@example.org
