Can’t help but think there is a deal here… - Posted by Ben (NJ)

every single day on the way to my office I drive by a nice house on a very busy road in a good neighborhood that has been for sale for about 2 years. It was listed, listing expired, then the guy tried FSBO, no luck, now it has been listed again for the past six months with no bites. The guy moved out 9 months ago so he has just been carrying it like an albatross. I know a big part of the problem, it is on a very busy road which is mainly commercial porperties and has NO front yard or back yard. No one with kids would touch this property. It was listed at $379,000 six months ago but I’m sure it is much less now. Obviously, he is VERY motivated by now but if the house won’t move it won’t matter how good a price I get it at, right? I certainly don’t want be stuck with it either. This is also a VERY hot market around here. Stuff is going in a day for more than asking price and here this sits. How would you pros approach something like this? Any ideas would be appreciated.
