Re-read what I wrote. You can’t motivated an unmotivated person. Listen to what he wants. Since he owns it free and clear, he doesn’t have to worry about payments and mortgages. Stop trying to make it so hard on yourself. He’s told you. A) I don’t want monthly payments (which means good bye to lease options and owner financing) B) I just want my cash and to be done with it.
