You certainly don’t have a lot of time to act. Big question: Can property be rented to cover VA loan PLUS pay you, or a lender, a decent return on the $35K? If you considered lease/optioning this property, you could be looking at a $20,000 payday.
Regarding the pool, I’m not sure how much a cracked pool costs to repair. If it’s expensive, say half the cost of a new pool, you’ve just cut your payday in half. That would make this a borderline deal for me. However, if you could just cover the pool and sell it for $127K without pool repairs, it’s worth pursuing.
I’m not very creative with my deals yet, so this analysis is pretty simplistic. But, I hope it helps.
