Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
Line 4 is the actual purchase price.
If you acquired this property by purchase, enter your purchase price. Your purchase price includes the down payment and any debt you incurred; such as a first or second mortgage or promissory notes you gave the seller/transferor in payment for the property. Not any refinanced amount because that was not part of the purchase.
Did that clarify for line 4?
