It is usually the heated/cooled area in the house. Real estate agents will usually quote the floor area because the buyer will think he/she is getting more space for his/her money. When asked they will have to quote the living area. Even though the unheated/uncooled fllor area contributes to the aesthetic value of the house, some of it may not be useful to the buyer.
