    I bought a Galaxy S4 on swappa. The seller said it was not rooted but "root checker" and "soft card"say it is. In "terminal emulator" when I enter "su" I get a $ prompt. Is it rooted? I have no problem if it is but I do have a problem with the seller saying is was not if it is. Could I resell it like this. Will a Verizon store return it to stock condition? Thanks in advance.

    Download supersu from the playstore, if you're rooted you can switch to supersu and remove root.

    You can return it to stock condition yourself. [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN

    There's no reason to, though, other than if you want it repaired or replaced under warranty. All rooting does is add su to the system. (And probably busybox, to replace a lot of Linux commands that Google left out.) A non-rooted app wouldn't even know that the phone is rooted. (There are a few apps that check for root and won't run on a rooted phone, but Xposed and the RootCloak module fix that.)
