Yes, but it doesn't sound worth it for $8k. I'd would talk to the lender and see if they can bump the loan amount, use a credit card balance transfer, HELOC, etc. to make up the difference.

If I was going to ask the seller for a carryback, I'd make it worthwhile. Put 10% down and ask the owner to carry 10-15% interest only for 5 years followed by a balloon payment.

By the way, nice deal, good GRM, familiar territory, etc.
