24.I’d be willing to pay more if you can be flexible on the terms.

28.Well it sure sounds like the kind of property I’ve been looking for. I’d probably buy it from you if we can come to some agreement on either the on the price or the terms. What’s the best deal you could offer me on your property? (Don’t respond for at least 30 sec.)
29.Can’t you do any better than that? (Don’t respond.)
30.Okay, if I bring the paperwork over, can YOU make the decision…does anyone else need to be there?
