If someone’s offer makes you want to reply like that, here’s what to do next.
#6. Naming the First Price
If someone opens with an initial price that seems far too high or low to you…your best counter is to actively, verbally call out what they’re doing. Say that they’ve given you an insulting, unserious bid that isn’t even worth considering. By stating clearly that their bid isn’t serious, you’re making a claim that it effectively never happened, and thus you can restart the negotiations, this time with your own bid.
