When I was working, we were told NOT to include room dimensions for liability reasons.  And, always use "per assessor" as the source of the total square footage.  I don't know if that has changed or not.  It's been 7 years.

No, I do not include them.  It would be a liability issue if we measured wrong.  If a floorplan from the builder was available that showed dimensions that might be acceptable, but anything you give a buyer that could lead them to say "nah, I don't want to see that house" is not working in our client's best interest.

I do include them, however in today's sue happy society I do have concerns.

 I feel it is a needed information for buyers (as well as sellers).

I suppose one could put in a disclaimer in the remarks of the listing that the room dimensions are estimated for informational purposes only??

I usually do include room dimensions and/or a floor plan of the property. As mentioned in other responses - liability can become an issue later on; if a buyer wants to back out - they can claim that the room size(s) were not exactly as "advertised".

 

Here in Miami, a few years ago when the market went south - many buyers reneged on contracts claiming that the developer misrepresented the actual sizes of the apartments. The buyers were successful in getting the deposits back!
