How do You Calculate Acreage?

Are you doing this out of curiosity, or are you buying or selling a house? Well whatever your reasoning, it is not difficult to do. Example, there are 43,560 sq. feet in an acre of land. Measure the length and the width of your property. Divide the total number of square footage of the property by the total number of square footage in an acre of land, (43,560), the total equals acreage.
