Why use a Floor Plan?
Floor plans have become an essential marketing tool in selling or letting a property, be it commercial or residential. They are now seen as a must when marketing a property throughout the UK, and have become the most important marketing resource available to agents, and the most useful for potential buyers.
 
A floor plan gives a potential buyer, tenant or investor a greater feel for a property, and helps them assess if the property is right for them before any viewing. They can also be used to market new developments, which enables an agent or developer to promote a new build development or a conversion.
 
Mlp floor plans show the 2D or 3D layout of a property, highlighting the different room types, room sizes, bathroom and kitchen facilities, external areas and an accurate square ft/m or Gross Internal Area (GIA). We can also provide a Net Internal Area (NIA) for Commercial Floor Plans.
