What are o-l-d homes selling for there?
Will the PM let it stay? If not, hassle factor goes up.
IS there back lot rent? Are the taxes paid up? Any liens? Why does he need to sell fast? Will he tell you why? Do your homework.
If all looks good, then what WOULD you pay? 1100 seems pretty good, but I’ll bet you could get 1000, 900, 800.
The pattern often goes this way - get them down to what they feel is the rock bottom, but if you offer just a little less, they may acknowledge that they would go lower. Don’t get greedy, but food for thought . . .
