  • Mate, making an offer like that in Australia will often result in a few missing teeth and a trip to the emergency room, people down here absolutely hate low ballers, the last car I bought, the bloke wanted $2000, my initial offer was $1300, and we eventually agreed on $1500, Generally when I'm trying to negotiate the price on something, I offer about 70% of the sellers asking price as an initial offer

    • As stated before: Anytime you pay more than something is worth, you're getting taken advantage of. Like I said in the video, car was worth $2500 if it had no issues, but it needed about $1200 to get it to drive safely (remember this is for my Dad), so the $1900 offer was more than fair (plus he had other people check the car out and they wouldn't even offer anything because this wasn't in that good of shape cosmetically and the aforementioned vibration issue). After this video I did actually fix one of his other cars and saved him $600, so you could argue I gave him $2500 all in!

  • It surprised me he never mentioned the bodywork there was over £300 of bodywork needed, two bumpers repairing. hole in the sill and dents. However the price he got car for yes was reasonable, I went to see a Mondeo once and because he had a new clutch fitted wante in my opinion £300 more the nwhat the car was worth even in great conditio, I think he was askin £1,400 and at the most private seller was £1,100 maybe £l,500 from a dealer in very good condition. When I went to see the car their was a big dent in the back panel of car, when I took it for its test run and looked around it a few imperfection, however I did like the car and with it having a new clutch and cambelt fitted was worth making a offer, there was a receipt fo £575 for this work, sadly it doesn't put any extra value on the car but it is a good sellingv point. A car as its value and no one is going to go above that only odd people do, I offered him £700 and he went to a £1,000, I gave him reason why I wasn't willing to pay his asking price, to get the car as I would like it was around £600 bodu work, new tyre and a few things which was not good like one of the door handles where broken, mirror taped to car etc. I said I can increase to £795 and he said £900. Well £795 was my final offer and he refused it, however I did have another car to see the following day which I told him, but said I will give him my telephone number if he changes his mind, I think he thought I was having him on. In fact next day went to see this other car, after testing and looking at it he wanted £1,500 but there was a few things wrong with it so got it for £800, he didn't want that but he took it. It had 12 month MOT on it and when I got it home there was two holes in the back so it should of failed MOT, got in touch with him and he didn't want to know. Got in touch with testing station and they wanted to know they paid for repair. The seller of the other car got in touch with me after 3 days after and said I could have the car for £795, sadly to late so Frank was wise in taking the offer. I sympathised with the seller he put £575 in car and would of cleared £220, but it was the serious body workmy brother in law is a body work and painter so he probably charge me £200 but ther was over£400 body work on the car and a further £200 to £300 for other work so £795 was a fair price for the car in that condition. Sadly first seller left it to late had he rang me two days after as at first the other seller turned my offer down but rang me later that day to accept it, I have paid full price for cars as there was another car I got for a£1,000 and that was his asking price, the value private sale was £2,000 and £2,500 dealer. There was about £400 work needed doing so was sellingb well below what it was worth so never even tried to lower him, he had a valid reason for getting rid he lost his job and it was a big car to run and wanted smaller and had a car lined up so wanted quick sale. I had that car 4 years and only replaced clutch 2 years after buying car, brake pads and discs and alternator so not a lot to do on it since my owner ship so got a bargain at a £1,000. Having family knowing car as one in law was a mechanic another the bodywork so know what I am looking at. V
