How To Calculate Acreage Size Of Property

In many instances you may not have the actual size of a parcel, (in acres) from either county data or county records from list service brokers. The GIS, (geographical information system) will supply a screen shot of the actual parcel and you will be able to pull cross streets near your subject property to determine its location. In our example, this article will illustrate how you can determine the actual acreage size of any parcel using Google Maps.

Step 1) – Acquire Cross Streets From GIS County Map

Record the appropriate cross streets from the GIS system in the county website. Example: Cross Streets from GIS in Harnett County

Edit the appropriate Land record in Investment Dominator to assist in determining the size of the subject parcel.

Cross Streets From GIS

Step 2) – Access The Cross Streets Location In Google Maps

In a new browser window, access googlemaps.com

In the “Search Google Maps” search box type in the appropriate cross streets from Step 1) above. (Example: S 3rd St & E McNeill St)

Note: Make sure you select the appropriate matching cross streets that pop-up based on your entry in the search box.

Google Maps will go directly to the selected cross streets based on your selection.

Step 3) Locate Your Parcel In Relation To Cross Streets

Use the GIS county map from Step 1) and locate your subject parcel on Google Maps in relation to cross streets.

Note: You may want to Zoom-In on your subject parcel prior to proceeding to Step 4)

Step 4) Measure Distance And Size Of Your Parcel

Find one corner of your subject parcel and <right-click> on that corner to display the appropriate menu.

Select Measure Distance from menu to start measuring the subject parcel.

To start measuring, <left-click> on each corner of the subject parcel until lines have been drawn completely around the image.

Acquire the Total area in sq ft of the entire parcel for Investment Dominator calculation.

Step 5) Calculate Acreage Size Of Your Parcel

Notes: How To Attach A Property To A Note

There are two ways you can attach a property, or properties to a seller financing Note:

  1. If you create the Note from the ‘Land>Options>Payment Calculator> Create New Loan‘ or ‘Land>Options>Payment Calculator> Create New Lease Purchase‘ then the system will attach the property record that you were on when you opened the Payment Calculator to the New Note record.
  2. If you create the Note from the ‘Notes> New Note‘ screen, then under the ‘Property Information‘ section you will need to manually select the property or properties that you want to attach to the Note.

How to Change the Status of the Property (for Land Investing)

One of the most important keys to keeping your records organized (and making sure that no deals fall through the cracks) is to keep each record in the proper status.

By default, each new record is put into the “Prospect” status. While you can bulk update records after a mailing, you can manually change the status in one of two ways. You can either:

1. From your dashboard, select the records that you would like to update. And then click on “Change Status”

And select which status you would like to change your records to (all the records that you select will be changed to this status)…

2. A second way is to change the status from inside the contact record itself. From your dashboard, click on the link that says “Edit”

And once inside the contact record, change the “Property Record Status” to your desired status. After that, click on “Update Record” at the bottom of the page to save your record.
