If you are really REALLY interested in trying, I’d recommend getting the lease-option and market the heck out of the place. Place ads in any/all papers you can find/afford. Look for “I WANT” adds for people looking for property like this one. Call realtors… let them know what you are trying to do and talk creative ideas for their getting their commission; i.e. via monthly payments, small up front with balance when the ultimate buyer closes, whatever works.
If you think you can do this that’s all the motivation you need. If you have any doubts or feel pressured by the tight deadline, trust your gut. Do what feels right for you. Good luck.
