Default What's your bottom dollar?

Is anybody else sick of the phrase, "What's your bottom dollar?" To me, this is a stupid question. The price is listed, you don't like it? Make an offer. Join me in my boycott of the phrase by replying to it with a higher number or a comment like, "what's the top dollar you're willing to pay?". :)

It's even better when they say, "cash!" as if I was considering taking a check from them...

You'd be surprised how many people will drop their price 20-40% by asking that question. Actually don't think i have ever had someone not drop the price when i asked that. I think people that bitch about it are fucking retarded, it works on most people.

And times are tough so if you cant handle someone beating your price up then give yo stuff away. The term is like any other new term, I find it immature and annoying but I would never complain about it, not on a public forum anyhow.

Just did this with a van. Realistically, it was worth 3000ish. Inflated price by listing it for 4500, expecting to get a low ball/beat up on price ect meeting 1/2 way, and then he felt like they are getting a deal. Had a guy look at it, he asked what bottom dollar was. Replied with what's it worth to you?, he said.... It's worth 4200 to me. SOLD Laughed all the way to the bank.

You are not prolific. This has come up dozens of times before.

this... When ever I get the "bottom dollar" question, I answer that I put my price on it, it's your turn to make an offer if you don't like the price. That's what OBO means.

Bottom dollar doesn't bother me unless I tell you it & then you offer less.
