12. Accepting a Counteroffer

A: The counteroffer we've been waiting for is here, Mr. Richards.

B: Finally. It's been nearly three weeks.

A: Well, these things take some time.

B: I know, but I wasn't happy with the original offer.

A: I think you'll be happy with this. The buyer is coming in just below list.

B: Exactly how much?

A: They came in at $415,000, with very few conditions.

B: Wow! That's only $10,000 below list. I didn't expect that.

A: Neither did I, Mr. Richards.

B: What are the conditions?

A: They're not too bad. Mostly just to fix a few minor flaws.

B: That's great. I think we'll take this counteroffer.
