Do we have any legal recourse for buying a house that the square footage was misrepresented by about 10%?

Greenwood, IN |

5 yrs ago we purchased a house that was listed at 1755 Sq ft. We just found out this wk that it is 1596. We based what we offered on the sq footage. The realtor that listed it was the son of the seller. We think he over stated the size to make it look like a better deal. Based on sq footage we paid about 14K for the 159 sq ft we didn't get. We paid cash. Our realtor, and home inspector didn't catch this.

You may have a difficult time convincing anyone that you bought based upon square footage as opposed to what you saw and liked.
