Agreed. But I am looking forward to hearing how this plays out!

Sorry to disappoint, but I walked away from the deal. Told my agent to let the listing agent know how much I was willing to bid, IF they get the water access back or if she can get the waterfront owners to sell it to me. This way they will know if the agreement they can come to with the owners next door is too low.

It is a hot mess, the listing agent of the old laissez faire school, and the owner close to 90. I'll bang my head against a brick wall if I think it's worth while, but I have other properties to pursue. Even my agent concurred this was a property to walk away from. I will ask her to keep tabs on it and hopefully let me know how it wound up.
