Crankset, bar end shifters, and racks combined are about $200. If he is an active seller (which it sounds like), ask him to swap in some better wheels. Crap tires are typical flipper choice as buyers will usually NOT pay more for good tires. You could even offer to let him keep the tires and knock $20 off the price. Really goof ball routing on front brake, easy enough to fix. Overall, parts look pretty decent to me. I wouldn't be in a rush to change them all. Yes, it does look like a bit of parts bin build.

A guy who owns that nice bike stand surely knows better on that brake cable routing. Bottom bracket appears untouched to me too. Expect to need to do a service on it. If it had been serviced recently, you should see some remnants of grease around the spindle.
