Square Footage misrepresentation

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Coldwell Banker : One Thread

I am a victim of CB misrepresentation. The broker stated the home we bought was 5178 sq ft. In actuality it is 3566 sq ft. The broker advertised the home as "cant beat price per square foot of $80". That of course was based on the incorrect sq ftge. I am curious if anyone else has similar issues and what the outcomes are. Ive talked to my attorney, but they think its a pretty gray area in my state (iowa) even though there is convincing evidence around the country that I have a strong case to receive $80/sq ft times the # of sq ft I was shorted. Anyone have experience here? Thank you.
