Your questions are very valid what is true sq ft. of the home which governs how to submit a sales offer. Research shows a conflict in sq. ft. #'s. When I have been buyer's agent particular way to submit a sale agreement on behalf of buyer NOT over pay on a home.
Based on close inspection of the pictures I would safely assume the home sq. ft is closer to the 7,040 . It is a gorgeous property.
NOTE: I am a general contractor AND insurance claims adjuster many times I have "estimate size" based on what is presented to render an opinion WITHOUT additional expense.
