That all depends on what you're talking about. But I doubt every seriously that you're going to get a good answer from this forum. Contact local flooring companies and let them give you the pricing.

Is your square footage correct?
I am guessing you mean the floor covering and not the actual floor?
It will generally cost $3-4/ sq' to have mid-grade carpet installed but you need to take into consideration that the seller may have already discounted the price because of the flooring condition.
You can always ask for $4/sq' but I would expect them to counter with a lower figure.
