    Quoted from pinzrfun:

    Ok, what about this.....had a nice Who Dunnit for sale, was asking $2700.00. Guy emailed me - "I'll give you $2200.00 for it". He lived 10 miles away. I said "Sure, I'll take the legs off and fold it up, just back up to the garage and load it up".
    And he says, "Well, I have to play it first and check it out, if everythings ok I'll take it".
    I said "No, you're 10 miles from me, didn't bother to get off your couch, didn't ask me anything about the game, just offered me $500 less than my asking price. For that much effort, you back up, load it, and leave."
    "Well you don't expect me to buy it without playing it??"
    I said "You didn't ask to play it, you offered to buy it, just like a "Buy It Now" on ebay. I agreed to your price, so come get it. "
    So, what is the proper protocol in THIS situation?
    For the record, I did sell it. Not to him. He stayed on his couch.

    I like this story. but, gotta ask... what did you end up selling it for?

    I think it's nice if they ask beforehand if the price is negotiable rather than "what's your best price?"

    I agree with the "one haggle" rule. but,
    I get impatient when selling and usually offer even a bit more of a discount to the first interested person..
    My wife says I'm nuts. I just hate to have to wait for another possible buyer.
