Need Help on MH Purchase - Posted by Ron

I ordered Lonnie’s book but probably won’t receive it until after Thanksgiving and as such, I am at loss as to how to handle my first deal.
I have located and made an offer on a 1978 Skyline,
14 X 70, 2/2, c/h, c/a, two vehicle car port, washer/dryer, ranger/ref, kingsize bed (good condition), two large dressers, curtains, drapes, fairly clean, no real work to do.
Owner had to leave town and go to Montana to help his brother-in-law with his Motel business and wants to get rid of this in a hurry. He was asking $3,000.00, I have him down to $2,250.00 cash, however, as any of us would do, I would like to get a little lower on the price, but by the same, I don’t want to scare him off. The home has been vacant two (2) weeks and there has been no vandalism as yet. It is set up in a fairly good park, nothing to howl about, but one that could make a little profit if I can find the right buyers.
I have not talked with the Park Manager as yet as this deal came about faster than I ever expected and I am at loss right now just what to do and what to say, to both the seller and the Park Manager. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance for you input,
