Marcus Hiles Pushes For Renters To Consider Cubic, Not Square, Footage

It’s common for potential renters to go online to check out floor plans before visiting a property, but the dimensions of a room displayed only in square footage may be inadvertently misleading. Notes Marcus Hiles, Dallas developer and real estate mogul, examining a property’s cubic footage – which totals a room’s length times width times height – offers a more accurate picture of the potential for an apartment or townhome to meet a tenant’s expectations. “Ceiling height creates ambience in a living space,” says Hiles, the founder and CEO of Western Rim Property Services. A 10-foot by 12-foot room with a height of eight feet measures 120 square feet and 960 cubic feet, but raise the ceiling to ten feet, and overall room volume increases to 1,200 cubic feet. “The standard eight feet can make residents feel boxed in, while 18-foot rooms tend to be cold and cavernous,” Hiles points out. Western Rim’s high-end apartment homes boast ten-foot ceilings, offering tenants the right balance of spaciousness and comfort.
