Don't be afraid to low ball.
You know, I am
afraid to low ball and I don't think I'm alone. I think it's partly because I'm worried about offending someone, but also I'm not sure what the difference between a lowball offer and a ridiculous offer is in the boat world.
Let's say someone is asking $10k. Assuming average circumstances, is $7k to $8k an expected offer, $5k lowball and $2k ridiculous?
