Guessing the size of a room during a home tour is never a good idea — especially when you’re trying to figure out if your larger pieces of furniture will even fit through the doorway. This is where a tape measure comes in handy and is an absolute must when going on home tours. 

Take Furniture Measurements in Advance

If you already have your furniture, now is the time to break out the tape measure and determine if your pieces will even fit before you make an offer. There are two ways that you can do this: the old-fashioned way using graph paper and making a scale drawing, or you can use a room layout program on your computer or phone to map out your dimensions. While the size of your sofa shouldn’t be the reason why you pass on a great home, it could affect your overall decision-making process.
