land measurement conversion

(1) Most often necessary when translating acreage measurements into square feet, because as land becomes more valuable people begin quoting prices in terms of dollars per square foot rather than dollars per acre. There are 43,560 square feet to an acre.(2) Older deeds often contain descriptions with property lines expressed as “chains”or “rods,” which must be converted to feet and inches to be meaningful today.
