Conversation: 12. Rejecting a Counteroffer
12. Rejecting a Counteroffer

1. Repeat


A: I was calling to see if the buyers had accepted my counteroffer.

B: Yes, actually they just called back with a counteroffer of their own.

A: Is the counteroffer close to the asking price?

B: The counteroffer is for ten thousand less than your asking price.

A: I didn't really want to go that low in my pricing.

B: I agree that that price is too low. Your home is in good shape, and you should get a better price for it.

A: What should I do at this point?

B: Since you don't want to go any lower, we can notify them that you are rejecting their latest offer.

A: Can you take care of that for me and get back to me?

B: I will let them know that your counteroffer was the lowest price that you will accept.

2. Repeat


A: Has there been any word about whether the buyers have accepted my counteroffer?

B: Yes, I was going to call you this morning. Your buyers have responded with a counteroffer.

A: Is the counteroffer a good one?

B: They are now offering ten thousand less than your asking price.

A: That is really a bit lower in price than I would like to go.

B: I think that your feelings are valid. You have a beautiful home and can afford to wait for a better offer.

A: What is the next step?

B: You can flat-out reject their offer and see what they come up with.

A: I would like you to notify them that I am rejecting their offer.

B: I will notify the buyers that you will not accept their counteroffer.

3. Repeat


A: I was wondering if the buyers have accepted my counteroffer.

B: Yes, I just faxed you the information an hour ago. The buyers have a counteroffer for you.

A: How much did they counteroffer?

B: They now are offering to pay ten thousand less than your asking price.

A: I am not really ready to accept that low of a price.

B: I wouldn't accept that price either. Your home is in a good area and should command a higher price.

A: Where do we go from here?

B: We should notify them that you are rejecting their current offer. They might choose to offer a higher price.

A: Please let the buyers know that I am rejecting their offer.

B: I will take care of that right away. They may or may not raise their offer.
