RMS Measuring in Alberta

ATTENTION: All Alberta Sellers - There is a Measurements Requirement for all
Alberta MLS® System Listings.

The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) has implemented this policy.

All Alberta MLS® System listings must include detailed measurements. Typically it is the full service real estate agent who is obtaining the room measurements for the sellers. Since you are not using a full service real estate agent to list your property, you will need to provide them to us, along with the rest of the listing information we need to list your property on the MLS® System properly.

As such, we have put together this page to help our customers better understand what their options are as it relates to providing the RMS measurements for their MLS® System listing that are compliant with RECA's standards.

Each seller is welcome to use whichever measurements professional they want, as long as they meet the RECA requirements we need for our compliance with them.

The service providers mentioned below can also provide the measurements needed for the brokerage to load your property onto the MLS® System in PDF format.

The Services They Provide Typically Include:

  • All room measurements
  • Bathroom pieces verify
  • The total square footage to use as per RECA within the MLS® System
  • Schematic Drawing
  • Photograph of Property

(Typical costs for measurement services are usually around $100.00 - $150.00.)


With FSBO, you ALWAYS SAVE approximately HALF of the commission you would normally pay a full service agent.
