You have to determine where under the hood it's ticking.

I personally would not buy it till I knew what the noise was, it could be engine related. Have a mechanic look it over for you before purchase, it's called a PPI or pre purchase inspection. Will cost a little but worth it in the long run.

More they anything else, it's is coming from the valve cover. 9 x's out of 10, it's the push rods, or the lifters....let your local mechanic look at it first
