When Rhea and her husband bought a new flat in Kolkata, they faced a lot of challenges in understanding the language of the real estate business. This was when they finally met the best real estate consultant in Kolkata that they learnt the basics of choosing a good apartment.
What is carpet area, built-up area, and super built-up area?
Carpet Area: The area that can be covered by a carpet excluding the thickness of the inner wall. The carpet area is the area of the flat that you can use like stairs, living room, play area, etc. While buying a flat one needs to consider the carpet area as this is the part that you would be using.
Built-Up Area: The carpet area along with the walls make up the built-up area. The area includes the living space along with the walls and also the balcony. You need to be careful about the built-up area as the prices and size of the area can be quite misleading at times.
Super Built-Up Area: The super built-up area consists of the built-up area that can be used along with the amenities offered like lobby, lifts shaft, stairs etc. Those looking to buy apartments have to pay for the super-built up area when they buy the flat.
Rhea was ready to buy a flat after a phone call conversation with an agent who promised a carpet area of 703 sq.ft at 80 lacs. But luckily her husband did not agree and hence they didn’t go forward with it.
The couple then went in for consultation with a real estate consultant who told her that she was just about to be cheated big time as the said property did not have the carpet area that the agent had stated and neither was the rate of the property that high. The consultant then informed them about the real meaning of carpet area, built-up area, super built-up and the basic things that they should consider.
Thus, with the help of the real estate consultant, Rhea and Nikhil found their dream apartment in the heart of Kolkata.
