L/O or Retail - Posted by Marlon (OH)

I’m going to make an offer on a house but I’m not
sure how to structure it. The house has been on the
market for about 5 months now. When it first went
on the market it was at 60k (7k below FMV). I
talked to the owner then and he has to sell because
they have another house out of state and don’t want
two payments. He also has a loan on it for 37k. I
offered 40k and he said no because he figured he
could sell it himself for more. Since then the
price has dropped to 45k. I want to make another
offer on the house. Should I go for a L/O or try to
get it for less? I want to try to do a retail flip
on this one.
Thanks in advance.
