I heard you shot your woman down.
Just kidding man. You are going to need to find out if the sellers are willing to owner finance or not. Don’t expect a deal if they are asking FMV (or above?). Even though free and clear and FSBO help the situation, you still need the motivation to put your problem solving abilities to action.
If I were you I would check out Finkel’s how-to of “How to buy Free and Clear Properties [part II]” and then go to the homeowners with his possible scenarios. But beware, it doesn’t take a genius to pay too much for a house.
