Default looking at a local 2005 Impreza RS 2.5 wagon, with loud engine rotational noise

My gf's daughter needs a cheap reliable rig, and since we have snow in southern Oregon, a subaru makes total sense.

With that in mind, have found a local 2.5 impreza wagon for sale. Car was driven daily up until recently as the car makes a very loud rotational noise when running in neutral. I looked at the oil and coolant and they looked reasonable abeit dirty and needing changed. The owner agreed to let me remove the accessory belts so i did both belts and the noise was still there, maybe about 90% still. She is asking $600 for the car (was a company car, all stock, 143k miles, clean title, needs detailed but reasonable shape and seems like a killer deal), but I dont want to get a rig that needs an engine going into winter.....could it be the timing components or water pump or oil pump? I have brief videos I could upload if it might help diagnose......thanks in advance, Jeff in so Oregon....

edit....video of the noise
