What is a reasonable price to pay for a pre-owned Canon EOS 80D? Will I even see the benefit?

I am a novice/beginner with a self-proclaimed “good eye”.  
I recently “upgraded” from an ancient first-gen Canon EOS Rebel (circa 2002) to a pre-owned EOS T6 before heading to South Africa for a trip.

While in South Africa, I met a guy who had an 80D and I got camera envy.  But, I told my wife I would become a much better, more knowledgeable photographer before I spent more money on yet another camera body, so I really knew what I would be getting out of it when I made the jump.  However, I found a guy who is selling an 80D body in purportedly like-new condition with the battery grip for $448.

Is this a good deal?  Is it too good to pass up?

Is it worth jumping to the 80D, or sticking to my guns about using my T6 to become a better photographer first, and re-evaluating in a year or two?

What should be the considerations for making a change in camera body, other than “wow! That’s a lot of cool tech!”

Thanks!
