Re: Initial Offer Question
First boat offered 70% of asking price, we settled at about 80% with some additional repairs done at owners expense.
Sold first boat at about 70% of my asking price but I took some gear with me.
Second boat offered 70% of asking price. Rejected, could not come to an agreement.
Revisited three months later and gave the broker the exact same offer, he called me back within three minutes to say we had a deal.
It's business. Never personal.
