i thought i was going to get beat up at the offroad swapmeet a few years ago offering less each time i came back. was an older guy with a brand new lockar dip stick for a c4, he wanted $75 and i kept offering $25. He finally told me if i come back and said $25 again he was going to punch me in the face...... i bought it for $30. lmaoI've always said the one who says the price first is the loser. If i'm selling something and say I want $150 for it. I know I am hoping to get $120 or so. If you tell me you want $150 I will try my best to offer you $100 for it starting even lower. If I ask how much and the guy says make me an offer. If may be worth $150 to me so I would offer $120 hoping to get it for cheaper and then they counter higher and back and forth and I end up paying MORE than the person who started at $150 would ever get. Also I learned a long time ago especially at the swapmeet unless you really really want it to just walk away and each time you come around offer them lower than the offer before and usually it works in your favor and you get it for the first price you offered since if you offer $120 and they say no $150. and next time around you offer them $110, they say no, then offer $100 next time, then they think hell that $120 offer wasn't that bad and usually will come down of close to it say, $125 of so. It's been my strategy for many many years and I will shoot out rediculously low offers often if I'd like to have something but don't NEED it. If someone is asking $1500 i'll shoot them an offer of $700. My motto is what's the worse they can say, NO?
