My old flat mates moved out recently and we’ve been trying to get rid of stuff that had been abandoned by people over the years. So I’ve been trying to sell a slow cooker. I don’t really need to money and I wasn’t the one who bought it in the first place so I listed it as £15 and planned to spend the money on beer for the house.
I’ve had one woman interested and we arranged she’d come tomorrow. Now she’s messaged asking if I’ll drop the price to £10 to cover her tube fare here. I think it’s a bit cheeky to ask now; I might have been amenable if she’d asked in the first place, but I only live in zone 2 (London), and the area was listed on the original ad.
So my question is what would you do?
1/ Take £10 as I don’t have any other offers, I’d like it gone, and I’m not losing anything as I didn’t buy it in the first place
2/ Haggle and offer £12
3/ Tell her I need £15 for her and risk her saying no and having to advertise again etc.
If it makes a difference the cooker is on sale in Argos for £35.
