How can a home jump from 1,530 sq ft to 2,200 without adding an addition to the house?

A seller is advertising a home at 2,200 sq ft, but all past listings and records show that property as being just 1,530 sq ft.  No additions have been added to the home.  What could cause such a change without additional building?  Finishing an attic or basement, perhaps?  Thanks for your help.

It may be an addition that was done with or without a permit or the owner may be wrongly unfinished counting porch, attic or garage space. You can check for permits with your local building depatment to see if any space has been finished or added. That info is available as part of the public record for free.

For your particular problem, we do not know the answer, however, these things might be applicable:

1.  Advertisements are just that -they are advertisements and most carry a disclaimer in small print that these things are not guaranteed accurate.   So, the difference might be just an error.

2.  This might be a typographical error OR simply an error due to misjudgment.

Other than that , we can not make any further guesses.
