Estimate price for this property.
All cash would be around $300k. Banks don't lend on homes without a heater system. Go to Home Depot buy a wall heater and increase the price to $340k-$350k.

Would a better option be land contract? We currently pay close to 2k a month renting. We probably will not qualify for a loan because of credit.
