Negotiating the Price (1)


A: I would love to rent this apartment.
B: I'm happy to hear you say that.
A: How much are you asking for every month?
B: I'm renting this apartment out for $1050 a month.
A: That is quite a lot of money for just one month.
B: That is a fair price.
A: What do you say to $850 a month?
B: That's no good.
A: It's either $850 or nothing at all.
B: I won't go any lower than $1050.
A: Could you please go lower?
B: That's the best I can do.


A: This apartment is wonderful.
B: I'm glad you like it.
A: How much would I have to pay for rent?
B: The rent is $1050 each month.
A: That's way too much money.
B: It isn't too much.
A: How about if I pay $850?
B: I can't take that.
A: I can't go any higher than $850.
B: I honestly don't know what else to tell you.
A: You can't go any lower than that?
B: If you can't afford $1050, then we have no deal.


A: I think I may rent this apartment from you.
B: That's great to hear.
A: How much are you looking to rent it for?
B: For each month you would have to pay $1050.
A: That is too expensive.
B: I don't think that is too much for rent.
A: How does $850 a month sound to you?
B: That's not enough.
A: That's the best that I can do.
B: $850 a month is not enough money.
A: Would you please reconsider?
B: That's my final offer. Take it or leave it.
