Buying first bike for city commuting...

I am buying my first bike for commuting/riding in a metropolitan city (pretty flat for the most part) and have been browsing Craigslist for a good starter bike. I found this vintage Fuji Flair and offered $150 (they came back and asked for $175). What would this bike be worth?
Also, what sorts of questions should I be asking the owner to deduce its value/condition? Totally new to this! If anyone could help I'd be so grateful.


Picture is attached.

Here is the bike description on Craigslist:
Great condition steel frame road bicycle. Perfect for every day commuting and longer rides. I have loved having this bike for a couple of years but have upgraded recently and no longer have room for it.

It is a medium frame bike and would fit someone between 5'5" and 6' (male or female).
