Here's the deal:
Couple had a small home and decided to upgrade and bought another home w/out selling first home. They put house on market 3 yrs. ago listed over 50K. I looked at house w/my sister-in-law then and told her it was way overpriced and not to buy or put in a low offer. Note: It's her best friend from high school who is selling it. Fast forward 3 yrs. : still on the market today and agent told me today they are trying to short sale it. It's now listed at 35K. Totalview estimate is $47K. I don't know their current financial situation, but if I had a workable plan to present to them, I would feel very comfortable approaching them about it.
Would this be as situation for a lease option or a subject to. I'm strapped on cash, as it looks like my HELOC is going to be drained from another potential deal (if it goes through). I'm a newbie and working on my first deal, and this seems like it has potential.
Side note: the listing agent is also my agent if that matters at all.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice!!!
