Example: comparing the price per square meter of different properties

In this section, we will see a concrete example of how to calculate and compare the price per square meter of three different properties.

The time has finally come to buy your first home. You've visited several properties, and three have caught your eye. They are pretty similar in style but differ in price and surface area. You want to know which is the cheapest in terms of price per square meter.

1. The price of the first house is $406,000 for 150 m2. 2. The second house is priced at$410,000 for 152 m2.

What is a $400,000 house surface area? 170 m2, assuming the price per square meter is around$2,353. To calculate it, use this formula:

• house surface area = house price / price per m2

In our case:

• house surface area = $400,000 /$2,353 per m2 = 170 m2
