Price Per Square Foot Calculator with Built-in Multi-Area Square Footage Calculator

Price Per Square Foot Calculator Sign

This calculator will calculate the price per square foot based on the price and the total square footage of the house, apartment, or commercial building.

Or, if you know the price per square foot, you can enter it along with the square footage to calculate the price, rental payment, or lease payment.

Also, if you enter a rental payment instead of a price, this tool can be used as a rent per square foot calculator.

Plus, the calculator also includes a built-in square footage calculator that converts the width and length of an area into square feet, and for any number of areas (rooms, floors, buildings, etc.). You can enter length and width in feet only, feet and inches, or inches only, and the calculator will make the proper conversions and total the square footage of all entered areas.

Finally, if you enter any number of labeled areas, you can print or save the square footage chart for future use.

Square Footage Calculator:

If you know the total square footage of the apartment, condo, home, or building, you can enter that square footage directly into the Total square feet field.

Otherwise, if you need to calculate the total square footage, enter the label, width, and length of the first area (floor, room, etc.), and then click the New Area button to enter the label, width, and length of each additional area. You can also enter the square footage of an area without having to enter the length and width. Any area entries will be availabe in a printer friendly report.

Price or rental charge per square foot:

This is the calculated price or rental charge per square foot, based on the price or rental charge and the total square footage. In the case of rent or lease per square foot, the value will correspond to the payment term of the rent or lease payment enterred (monthly payment will yield the monthly rent per foot, etc.).

How to calculate square footage and price or rent per square foot.

How to Calculate Square Footage of a Room

To calculate the square footage of a room, measure the length and width of the room, and convert those measurements to feet.

To convert length and width measurements, divide the inches portion of the measurement by 12 and add that result to the feet portion.

For example, if the length of a room measures 12 feet, 9 inches, divide the 9 inches by 12 (9 ÷ 12 = 0.75) and add it to the feet portion, for a total of 12.75 feet.

Or, if the length of a room measures 153 inches, divide the 153 inches by 12 (153 ÷ 12 = 12.75), and since there is no feet portion, the converted total would 12.75 feet.

Finally, once you have converted the length and width measurements to feet only, multiply the length feet by the width feet to find the square footage of the room. So if the length of a room is 12.75 feet and the width of the room is 10 feet, the square footage of the room would be 127.5 square feet (12.75 x 10 = 127.25).

The following chart from the results of the Price Per Square Foot Calculator shows how you would calculate and add up the square footage of multiple rooms.

Note that you would calculate the square footage of any other square or rectangle area (floor, building, etc.) the same way as you would a room.

How to Calculate Price Per Square Foot

Once you know the square footage of a building, to find the price per square foot, you divide the price of the house or commercial building by the total square footage.

For example, if a 3,000 square foot house is listed at $250,000, the price per square foot would be $83.33 (250000 ÷ 3000 = 83.33).

How to Calculate Rent Per Square Foot

Once you know the square footage of an apartment, to find the rent per square foot, you divide the rental payment by the total square footage.

For example, if a 1,200 square foot apartment rents for $900 per month, the monthly rent per square foot would be $0.75 (900 ÷ 1200 = 0.75). To find the annual rent per square foot, multiply the monthly rent per square foot by 12 (0.75 x 12 = $9 per square foot annually).

How to Calculate Square Foot Price

If you know the price per square foot and the total square footage, you can calculate the square foot price by multiplying the price per square foot by the total square footage.

For example, if the price per square foot is $111.05, and the total square footage is 4,500, the square foot price would be $499,725 (111.05 x 4500 = 499725).

By the way, according to the U.S. Census Bureau Survey of the Median Price per Square Foot of new single-family homes, 2017, the average cost per square foot of new single-family homes was $111.05.

Note that you can use the same formula to calculate square foot rent or lease payments (rent per square foot x square footage = square foot rent payment).

Adjust Calculator Width:

Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.

Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".

Show/Hide Popup Keypads:

Select Show or Hide to show or hide the popup keypad icons located next to numeric entry fields. These are generally only needed for mobile devices that don't have decimal points in their numeric keypads. So if you are on a desktop, you may find the calculator to be more user-friendly and less cluttered without them.

Stick/Unstick Tools:

Select Stick or Unstick to stick or unstick the help and tools panel. Selecting "Stick" will keep the panel in view while scrolling the calculator vertically. If you find that annoying, select "Unstick" to keep the panel in a stationary position.

If the tools panel becomes "Unstuck" on its own, try clicking "Unstick" and then "Stick" to re-stick the panel.
