Re: What's the most absurd seller statement you've heard

I went to take a look at a Tanzer 28 two years ago. I quickly realized that the pictures were 7 years old and that the boat was not such in a good condition. He was asking 8000$ for it. I offered him 5000$.

He said:

"I have too many good memories with it to let it go at that price." So I politely left.

The guy called me few times after that day. Guess what ; the boat was still for sale at 2500$ two months ago. I guess that I mostly got caught by my inexperience ... and I'm pretty sure that he still remember that quote of his.
