I'm not sure how square footage is arrived at in OKC.

In Wisconsin I tell my buyers not pay any attention to that for the following reasons:

1. Often times the tax record states one number and the MLS sheet states another. If the current or even the previous seller updated their home without a permit, that number could be way off.

2. Is the square footage per agent or seller?

3. Square footage in our state is arrived at differently from municipality to municipality. Some derive it from the outside footprint, while others use the totat of the interior of the rooms etc.

4. And finally, and maybe most importantly, you can have a 2500 square foot home that has less living space than a 2,000 square foot home depending on the layout of the home.

Hope I didn't confuse you more.
