Re: Seller agreed to offer, but set a clause,"no discounts after survey"
So he already dropped his selling price and "now" you want to add(subtract) survey and sea trial discounts on top....??Isn't that double dipping...?
Seems you should start at the "asking price...subtract the defects noted in survey/sea trial (which may be great or inconsequential) and then "discount" the offer even more if you feel lucky...
That's like negotiating best price on a new car and "then" asking how much for my trade in...
"Might as well cast off...If anything is gonna happen...It's gonna happen out there..."
