“This Property Sits on Nearly a Quarter Acre!”
The agent’s boast (above) on MLS caught my eye, because the listed home is in a neighborhood — Seward, near the Mississippi River — not known for larger lots.
So, I looked up the lot dimensions in Hennepin County’s tax records: 40′ x 129′, for a lot size of 5,160 square feet.
Given that a full acre is 43,560 square feet, that makes the lot in question exactly .1184573 acres.
Which comes to less than 1/8 of an acre — less than half what the agent touted.
Definitely not a good start, if you’re representing the prospective Buyer . . . .
