Then take the route if it's priced right. Sounds like an oldtimer who's not into games and is just probably trying to make some extra money or is just helping out a younger guy like you because he was you at one point and is most likely just helping you out. Don't miss out on a big opportunity. This guy could really help you grow. Word of mouth is extremly important, especially in smaller communities. Be prepared to do quality work or it will backfire very bad.
