This guide has been reviewed against our global client base and classed as relevant to all regions

A sales property’s price per square foot/metre is automatically calculated and added to the property attributes

Once entered, this value can be used on templates and brochures generated in AgencyCloud

Having visibility of this calculation is useful for agents to see when comparing property for valuation purposes, as well as being of interest to prospective buyers

1. Add square foot/metre value

This feature requires a property price as well as a property measurement area to be entered

From sales property, Attributes panel:

From property Attributes, Measurements section:

  • Click the drop-down menu and select Square metres or Square feet
