5 Glenmore Drive, Durham NC 27707, sq ft? The current listing says it is 3,359 sq ft, but the previous sale in 2007 shows sq footage at 2582 sq ft, which is correct? How do I get a floor plan for this property?

Hi Penny
I think we should go and look at this property to be acurate, the tax records show less than 1600 sq ft the last sale shows 2582 and this listing shows 3359. It looks as though the basement has been finished and is in the sq footage now. I would feel better actually looking at the property and verifying it myself.

There are several possibilities that only the listing agent can confirm. Members of the triangle MLS are responsible for the square footage they report and can be fined or worse for inaccuracies. The sellers may have done a room addition or enclosed a porch. Inorder for space to be counted as finished sqare footage, it must be properly permitted at the time of construction. It appears that the additional square footage is below grade so most likely they finished a basement area. However, the selling agent or an appraiser should confirm the numbers.
