So today I go with a friend to see a new apartment in a building that is still under construction but almost finished. The blueprints they gave us said the bedroom measures 3 meters x 3 meters. So we take out the tape measure and measure the bedroom because it looked somewhat smaller than 3 x 3. The bedroom measured 2.5 meters by 3 meters. The agent showing us the apartment said, "oh you have to measure from inside the closet to get the full 3 meters". If they tell you the apartment is 50 sq meters total, it's probably only about 42 sq meters of living space because they are talking meters from wall to wall, the spaces inside of closets, under counters, dividing walls and cabinets are hanging are all included in the meters they supposedly are selling you. How shady!
