If this deal has even the “possibility” of being as good as you’ve said, I think you should consider getting a contract signed without seeing the property. The landlord is VERY motivated, right now, but his motivation may be a little less after he gets this tenant out. Stike while the iron is hot.
Add the correct contingency to your contract, and you’ll be perfectly safe. “This offer is contingent upon buyer’s formal inspection and approval of property, in writing, within 15 days after current tenant has vacated the property.”
Make your closing date “45 days after the current tenant has vacated.”
Anyway, just wanted you to get this locked-up so you don’t lose it, just in case it turns out to be a good one.
