What Percentage of an Acre Is That?

A quarter of an acre, or 10,912.5 square feet, is equal to one-fourth of an acre, or 43,650 square feet. A quarter-acre is also known as 1,210 square yards of land because there are 4,840 square yards in an acre.

Lot sizes for quarter acres can vary. By dividing the lot’s length by its breadth, one can compute the area of a space in square feet. It is a true quarter-acre lot if the result is 10, 912.5 square feet.

The length times the breadth of quarter-acre lots will always vary, but any combination of the estimated dimensions will count toward the total square footage.
