Carpet area-

Carpet area is considered as the main area covered by a carpet; the space which you can deem to be your private space. Being the area of highest importance, this is the place which every home owner specially concerns for. Carpet area is actually considered as the main housing unit excluding the common areas like staircase, playing area, elevator etc. Also, it does not comprise of the thickness of the wall or the terrace or the loggia. So, when you are going to make one of the biggest investments in your life, it should be the carpet area to propel you to make your final decision. Normally, 70% of the entire built-up area is measured as the carpet area.

Built-up area-

Built-up area is measured taking the total carpet area and the space covered by the walls. From dry balconies and terraces to flower beds and other clip-on livable spaces, built-up area takes in everything belonging to one specific unit. Although this area doesn’t have much significance while calculating the price of the property, but still it comes out as an important yardstick while taking on the mandatory Government rules and regulations.

Super built-up area-

Super built-up area is the joint place measured by adding the common area and the built-up area which include lobby, stairway, clubhouse, swimming pool, gymnasium, playing area and even the garden.

Considering the above facts, the builders happen to place their price to the buyers and which is why being best aware of the above jargons is more than important. Mostly, the base cost is charged on the super built-up area. The more the amenities are, the higher the price is expected to be and which is why, the area is also known as ‘saleable’ area.
