Thanks for all of the input. I like the idea of putting on contract for a little $ and having an inspector check it out. I called the guy again and said that I thought his price was high. He told me that he just put it on the market and wants to give it some time to see what happens. I can tell him what’s going to happen, NOTHING! I’m going to keep in contact with him and see what develops. He’s not yet motivated enough to deal with. And even if he becomes motivated, I’m not sure if there’s a deal here at all. Besides, I’ve got 2 offers in on bank repos and an offer on a nice duplex that has just been accepted! We got this one way below market and seller consessions to the tune of 4K. They are definatly “don’t wanters”.
Good luck to all!
