# How Big Is An Acre In Square Footage?

One acre equals 43,560 sq ft. People often want to know the answer to this when they are selling land or just want to know the value of an area of land that they own.

So how do you do this? You can determine the size of the parcel of land in the measurement acres. If you already know the area of the land either in square feet or square miles then use the figure above to translate that value to acres. You need to convert square feet by acres by dividing the amount of square feet by the above figure 43,560. For example, 130,000 sq ft of land would be the same as 2.98 acres. You then need to convert the square miles to acres by multiplying the amount of square miles by 640. For instance, 0.50 square miles of land would be the same as 320 acres of land. You sometimes will need to hire a surveyor to determine the amount of land in question if you simply do not know it or it is not listed on the deeds to the property.

You will then have to go about obtaining an appraisal of the value of the parcel of land in question. If it is unknown, however, you will need to hire an appraiser who will be able to accurately determine the value of the parcel. Then you'll need to divide the value of the parcel of land in question by the size of that piece of land in the form of acres. The figure you get at the end is the value of the parcel of land per acre. Say for instance that the land is thought to be worth \$100,000 and it is five acres, then you will be left with \$20,000 for every acre.

An area of one acre is equivalent to 43, 560 square feet. The word acre is used to define a unit of measurement of area (specifically, area of land). The imperial system and the customary units of measurement in the United States of America use the acre as one of the units of measurement of area.

One acre is also equivalent to 4, 840 square yards. The exact definitions of the words square yard and square foot vary. This is the reason why there are slight variations in the exact size of an acre as well.

Some units of measurement which are related to acre are the acre's length of one furlong, which is equivalent to 220 yards and the acre's breadth of one chain, which is equivalent to either four rods or 66 feet.
