What does "lot size" mean in real estate? The size of the yard and house combined or just the size of the yard?


It is the size of the entire piece of land the property sits on. The house may or may not be right in the middle of it. A survey will tell you exactly how big your lot is legally - sometimes your fence may actually be on the property line.

The house does not add or take away anything to the size of the land. The land is plotted by the county as to the size and configuration. Each lot could be of a different size, therefore there might be several lots side by side with different dimensions,

In some cases a developer might purchase one large lot to develop and build houses on. In this case he then divide the lots up as he see fit, however, these divided lots must be approved by the county,before anything may be built on them.

Lot size simply means the dimensions of a plot of land that has been divided by the county or by a developer and approved by the county.

The yard is determined by where you would decide to build the house on the lot. Your yard has nothing to do with the size of the lot.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.


Combined land. All that you own.

It is just the dirt, the piece of land you own.

Bill M
The house and the yard, unless the house is on someone else's property.
