When marketing a property, it is vital to complete the exposé or online advertisement with a floor plan. For existing buildings or even for new buildings, the floor plans drawn so far are less optimal. Either they are in an older design or they are overloaded architect floor plans. However, both can serve wonderfully as a template to draw a floor plan by yourself. If you don't have a template, just draw your floor plan by yourself.
First of all, you need the dimensions of the property that should be drawn. If you do not have any documents available, which you can use as a template, you will first need a sketch of the property. This is best done directly on site. In addition to a piece of paper and a pencil, you will also need a tape measure or folding rule. When taking measurements, do not forget the width of the windows and doors, the hinge for the doors and the equipment of the bathroom and kitchen. When furnishing the kitchen, a rough drawing without measurements is enough, because the cabinets are standardized. Only the location of the refrigerator, the stove and the sink are important.
Meanwhile, there are other tools, such as laser range finders and related apps for your smartphone or tablet, which automatically draw the floor plan while you are still measuring. These cost around €100 and are well worth the purchase. Once you get to grips with it, this is the easiest way to draw a floor plan yourself, which can then be optimized for sale by us.
