Of course, we prefer you have a professionally prepared floor plan by CAD, but we can still get the job done via other means:
1) Most property appraisals (if you can find yours) will include a property sketch. All will identify the outside perimeter to calculate square footage; while some will go as far to include interior rooms and walls.
The identification of windows, exterior doors, internal walls, doors and room labeling is important. Please be sure to markup your appraisal sketch before submitting to us.
2) Hand Sketch: Take out a piece of blank paper, or grid paper, and draw, in pencil, the interior layout from memory (or while doing a walk-through of the house). Start with the exterior for each floor, identifying doors, decks and windows. Then move to the inside, starting with walls then adding details like doors, closets, counters, bathtubs, etc. Be sure to label each room, and good news, there's no extra points for style :)
3) A video walk-through: With your smartphone, take one long video, or a series of videos, walking and talking as you go through the property. Believe it or not, our artist will figure it out! This combined with at least a rough sketch of the interior should be sufficient (we'll let you know if we require the 2D rendering step)
And lastly, if any of these 3 solutions fail, there is yet another way. We provide a service that will do it for you! That's right, we have professional CAD artists that can produce a digital 2D plan from just the photos and a "best effort" rough sketch (low-detail sketch). This service is provided for a nominal fee and can be selected as an option at check-out.
