Buyer-seller etiquette?

Before I bought my older Tartan I checked out another boat...it was so clean you could eat out of the bilge. I listened to the owner say how "set" the price was (even though it was handled by a broker) and the owner''s wife sit an chime how this boat was his "baby." I quickly ran away from that deal. A willing seller is key, negotiation is generally the rule, and early fickle behavior often signals more trouble ahead, IMHO.
