This looks like a good place for a lease option, rent with an option to buy.
Be careful here that you don’t commit to a long lease that you can’t get out of.
In fairness, you should not lead the seller to believe that you will be staying after October if you are not going to.
Under the circumstances I would be surprised if they went for the deal, but you never know until you try.
