I think they’re asking too much. There’s only a 10K spread between the asking price and market value. Buying and selling costs alone would eat that up.
I would wait and let pressure build up on them and see if they get more “motivated”. Right now they expect $43K for their equity. Maybe once their equity gets closer to being totally wiped out in foreclosure they will see the wisdom in accepting less cash rather than nothing.
As for how to pull off the deal, if you can get the price low enough you can always tie it up and flip it to someone else. Frankly, at $1500/mo gross rent I think you would have a hard time finding an investor to pay $150K for it.
