I have not yet pulled the trigger on my first deal but this is what I think.
The seller doesn’t seem very motivated yet. Did you find out when he is moving into his house. He may get a lot more motivated as that date gets closer.
It looks like you have a lot of things you can point out that need fixing, “You were going to fix that before you left weren’t you?”.
I would just wait and see if he get real motivated and will take around $1000. If not, just keep looking.
It’s like Lonnie says, “They have to sell but you don’t have to buy”
