What if my listing has a cottage or other finished space?

Only the primary residence’s finished, year-round square footage may be listed for the home.  Per ANSI standards the finished space must be accessed via contiguous finished space.  If you have to leave the year-round finished space to access other finished space, then it is not contiguous.

  • Mark ADU Detached Dwelling as Yes and fill in the Detached Finished SqFt for the total of all detached square footage, such as a guest cottage and finished space above a garage or boathouse.
  • In addition, the field for “Fin SqFt Total” may include the sum of all finished sqft for the property.
  • Remarks may note a Guest Cottage with features listed.
  • In Exterior Features you should check Guest Cottage.
