In real estate, a good agent representing a buyer will check the tax records of the property and compare the square footage listed in the MLS with what is recorded on the tax records.

The additions that were done may not have been done to code and need to have a close inspection by a licensed home inspector.
If you are thinking of buying or selling, talk to a REALTOR who can give you the information you need to make an informed decision.
