Tell the person you are a real estate investor and that you need to treat it as a business. If they aren’t willing to negotiate, then I would suggest to move on and find a different property. It might be hard, but you don’t want to throw yourself into a bad situation as much as the deal may look good. Keep working at it, and keep that deal in your files. Maybe down the road the seller will become flexible. Just because they aren’t today, doesn’t mean they won’t be next week.
