8. Negotiating a Price with a Student

1. Repeat

A: This car is exactly what I want!

B: I am glad that you like it. I've had good experiences with this car.

A: So, how much do you want for the car?

B: Well, the price in the paper was five thousand dollars.

A: Yes, I know, but I think that might be a little high for this car.

B: I might be able to come down a little on the price.

A: How about selling the car for four thousand?

B: No, that's way less than I could accept. However, I could accept forty-five hundred.

A: That sounds fair to me.

B: It's a deal then. Thank you!

2. Repeat

A: I really love this car!

B: Great! I was hoping that it would go to a driver who appreciates it.

A: How much are you willing to take for the car?

B: As I am sure you noticed, the price on the window is five thousand dollars.

A: Don't you think you could come down a bit on the price?

B: You seem like a nice person. Maybe I could lower the price a bit.

A: Would you sell it to me for four thousand?

B: I am thinking more in the line of four thousand five hundred.

A: I'll take it then!

B: Perfect! That works for both of us.

3. Repeat

A: I am definitely interested in buying this car.

B: Wonderful! It's good to find a person who really needs this car.

A: What is the price for this car?

B: The price I listed on eBay was five thousand dollars.

A: I was thinking that maybe you might be willing to lower the price a bit.

B: You know I just got a good deal on my new car. I think I can afford to knock a little off of this car.

A: I was thinking that four thousand would be a good price.

B: I couldn't go that low, but I could sell it for forty-five hundred.

A: That would work well for me.

B: It's done then. I've enjoyed doing business with you.
