I get folks who try the cash gimmick on me — or they say their wife won’t let them buy it for that much money right now.

For the cash chiselers — I generally raise the price $1000 on them after that sort of dishonest grinding stunt.  There is always another buyer — no worries.

For the guy who wants something and agrees to a price — then comes back saying that his wife won’t let him buy it — I tell him that is certainly a relief, because I really needed to ask my wife if it is OK to sell it to you!

I just laugh about the shenanigans some people try to pull when money is involved.

Reminds me of the time I was at a gun show and I heard someone ask,"How much for just the grips?" and the vendor answered,"$600 but you get a free pistol with them!"

It is important to remember —

While we may recall the wanna-be chiselers and cheats — the vast majority of buyers and sellers are extremely honest. 

90% of the time with the general public — fairness, trust, and solid transactions are in play.

On the Alan Tani site — it is 100%.

We can buy and sell our work, items, and our stuff — but our integrity is not for sale — and never will be.

Another trick that got a friend of mine,while looking at a lot,the realtor gets a call.The realtor then tells my friend another couple is coming to put a deposit down in 30 minutes.This may have been true but I think it was a trick and he rushed into buying this lot he can't unload now,impulse buy.He kicks himself all the time about it.The way I look at it you can get deals but, if you don't feel peace about it or it doesn't work out for some reason, it wasn't meant to be.Now if I ran across a deal that's a no brainer even if I don't need it, I could sell it for a profit.I know the land was a larger sum of money than a reel,most of us would have to sleep on before buying. I generally discuss anything over $100 with my better half,unless it's for our grandchildren, she doesn't discuss it with me, she's the toy guru...
