I once enquired about a police horse.
Price looked too good to be true. When I phoned, they said he had a bone chip that was easily operated on, for €1500. That was the reason his price was so low, if he had the chip removed he'd be worth a lot more.
Then I posed the question.. well why don't you get it removed, rehab him and sell him for more?
I would get more history from the owners and advice from your vet on the possibility of more bone chips, or why he has had this happen in the first place. As far as I am aware, the bone chip surgery is fairly simple, but there can be complcations with calcium build ups, or the chance of is happening again and depending what you want the horse for, depends entirely on what you can then do with them i.e long gallops, jumping
