Anyone tell me the dimensions of an acre in feet. I'm looking at a Lot thats 85 feet wide and 210 feet deep. HOW BIG IS THIS F'ING LOT?

1 acre is 43,560 Sq Feet. Your lot is 17,850 SF so that makes it .41 Acres. A little less than half an acre. a square acre is 208.71 feet by 208.71 feet. COZ

An acre is a football field. Look at a football field and there you go.

Why would post something so obviously wrong, given the correct answer above? [whacko] Is this a joke? Mike

Not if it's on a lake or in a downtown area in which case it could be a good deal. Depends? Tj

That's 1.32 acres.

A football Field is 1.032 acres 300 x 150 =45k Sq Ft. So it is a Hair over but a good visual aid. It is NOT 1.32 acres...

An NCAA regulation football field is 360' by 160' including the endzones which gives 57,600 square feet. Without the endzones, the square footage is 48,000 which is close enough as a reference for visual inspection.

It is half of Rosie O'doughnut's ass.

And there you have it - Yes one must cut out the end zones. Thanks!

There is probably room to haggle on the price depending upon the locations. Nice neighborhood, lots of competition to get in, close to a major city, you may have no wiggle room at all, but if it is in a rural area, not too close to highways, minimal services (no town water or sewer, etc. you might be able to get it down a bit. Where I live, they are getting about 50k for building lots in the 1 acre range, with no city water and no city sewer (so you've still got to drill a well and put in a septic system).
