The last thing they really want is a car to deal with so they will sometimes make an offer that is lower then the lease purchase option - especially if it's a type of car that is lower in value then they projected like maybe an SUV or alike.

I'd like to purchase the car when her lease is up because the car has been garage kept and has less than 4,000 miles on it after almost 3 years of driving. Given the low miles, the car is worth more than the lease end value.
Is there a way for me to purchase the car directly or does she need to purchase the car, then transfer it to me? Any ideas on how best to do this would be appreciated. The car is a Honda Accord in case that makes a difference.
