Just some thoughts: If I get this straight, she wants to sell, but doesn’t want to sell too soon. Maybe there are tax issues she wants to defer. You might ask her if she has considered a 1031 exchange. This would allow her to roll her profits into another property without tax exposure…worth mentioning.
If you can get her to agree to sell after a certain date, say Jan 1, 2002, then the agreement can be written up so that the option can’t be exercised until after that date.Then you simply mirror the term to your T/B…Good luck!
