“Contract price: $364,000 + sellers pay closing.

Pictures don’t show a small yard, fence, and 2-car driveway in the back.

The listings have the square-footage at 1,020, but it’s actually 1,276. Public records just updated to reflect this.”

Do you think $364,000 was a good deal for this 4 bed/3.5 bath?
