Hi there
Welcome to InvestEd
1 square is = approx 9.3sq metres so a unit dwelling of 60sqm would be equivalent to approx 6.4squares (60/9.3)
Most home builders talk in squares in Australia nowadays so just remember that if they do, to convert back to sq metres you need to multiply by 9.3.
Eg house of 50 squares (which is huge) would be 50 x 9.3 = 465sqm
Hope this clears it up for you.
To do a very rough calculation I usually multiply/divide by 10 to at least obtain a quick idea.
