So, I made an offer way, way above BUC, way, way above NADA, way above the average for the model from and $5000 more than the highest recent sale of a similar boat, yet still $13k below asking price. I thought my offer acknowledged this was a really nice example but after looking over the number again, I was wishing I'd come in a bit lower.

What happened? The seller countered $10k above my offer, a $3k concession.

Hope springs eternal.

Broker stridently tried to convince me how nice the boat was and that I really should up the offer. I acknowledged the boat was nice but that I would be more satisfied to miss out on the boat, than I would be making a much higher offer on it. Thanks, but I'll take a pass. There will be another. Much wailing and gnashing of teeth from broker.
