Question from Kim:

I would like to know the acre measurement of a property that is 673.68 feet by 820.76 feet.

Hi Kim,

If this is a rectangular lot 673.68 feet by 820.76 feet then its area is 673.68 × 820.76 = 552929.60 square feet. There are 43560 square feet in an acre so that is 552929.60/4356 = 12.69 acres.
