I've had a professional do my floor plans and house measures since 1999... sellers are impressed; buyers love them; liability for incorrect square footage reporting virtually eliminated. My guy charges me $90-150 depending on the size of the home and it's money well spent. Also one of my USP's in listing presentations.

I'm of the school of thought that says "don't give a prospective buyer any reason to rule out the home prior to seeing it."  Therefore, I do not include any floorplans, measurements, 360 degree photos, etc.  Virtual tours are carefully constructed as well.  Get them in so they fall in love with the house, then let them be ok with the positioning of the trash compactor.

We do not hire a company as that is not done in our area.  We use the Floor Plans from the builder, and show additions or expansions to that particular model Susan Laxson.  Some customers do like seeing the room dimensions.  On 30 year old homes, some are original and some have had expansions.

I dont do them for every listing but when I do have them, they are done by an outside company that specializes in that.  Many times there might be an addition to the property that does not show in the tax records and if there is a question on square footage, the liability is mitigated.

One thing I would point out though - I never provide the floorplan as one of the photos available to someone online either in the MLS or through Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, etc.  This is the easiest way for someone unscrupulous to see how the home is laid out, where doors and windows are, etc. allowing them to enter the home when no one is there.  Also, I dont state whether a home is vacant or not even if it is.  The showing agent always needs to call me first.

I don't provide one unless it is an unusual property.  If I do provide one, it is only available if they come and view the property.  I am security conscious as approximately half of my clients are high net worth individuals.  I promise my clients that their floorplan won't be on the internet for all to view.
