I’d offer to option the property for the mortgage balance and scratch that $1-$2k at closing. This seller is ‘up the creek’ unless you take over her payments.
Just point out to her that if she sold through a realtor, even if she managed to find a buyer at full market value, she’d have to come OUT of pocket something like $6k to close and that’s assuming she can keep making payments for the next few months while the realtor tries to find someone.
Besides, you need that $1k to market for a T/B.
Just remember, SHE has the problem, not YOU!

per your all GREAT suggestions, I came up with this plan.
1)- Get the DEED,including 1st and second mortgage.
( I do not know who is the second mortgage Holder.)
2)- Put the Deed in Land Trust.
3)- ask seller , pay 2-months mortgae payment after
she moves out.
4)- To find a T/B with L/O , 3-5% down and montly
payment of $1650 ( hard to get).
5) - pay $500 to seller now, and $500 at closing.
Ok. Any idea, I hope I didn,t mess em up.

I’d offer her a Subject To, and ask her to pay two months on the mortgages, or just take it subject to the first mortgage only, and give her her 2K at close.

I think it’s a better subject-to deal. 2 mortgages, seller moving out of town, wants some cash at close…I’d definitely want the deed here.
Get the deed, give the seller $1K to leave the picture and sell on a LC for $10K above FMV, $175K. Get 10% down from your buyer, $17.5K and offer to pay off the second for a steep discount. Then you’ll be left with just the 8% first and a real nice monthly cash flow.
