Super Built-up Area vs. Carpet Area

There are many real estate jargons  that a buyer encounters when he plans to buy a house or commercial shop, which are sometimes very confusing. Real estate developers and marketers also innovatively use several of these jargons to make their product lucrative to buyers and those who couldn't understand those jargons and their implications fall in the trap of innovative marketing and later get unsatisfied while taking the possession of the property.

The most common terminologies that you face while you buy a house are specification related to house area: Car­pet Area, Built-up Area and Super Built-up Area.

Car­pet Area: Car­pet area is the actual usable space in a house.

Built-up Area: It is the total space a house con­sumes which includes the car­pet area and the area of the walls put together. It is approx­i­mately 10% to 15% more than the car­pet area. The area of a ter­race is usu­ally con­sid­ered as half of the built up area.

Super Built-up Area: The Super Built up area includes built up area plus com­mon usable spaces like stair cases, pas­sages or lifts. This is usu­ally 25% more than the Built up area. The Super built up area is also known as the Saleable Area.
