I keep encountering the term "reasonable offer". I think reasonable is in the mind of the beholder. Say what you mean and mean what you say. I recently made an offer that so outraged the seller that he made rude crude and unattractive remarks. I also noted that he did not make a sale. Let the potential buyer know what you want (reasonable) but don't get pushed out of shape if his idea of reasonable does not coincide with the sellers idea of REASONABLE. Thats unreasonable.

"Reasonable offer", "make me an offer", "make offer" mean that the person is holding an auction.

If the seller doesnt know what he wants for an item, he should not be posting an ad to sell it.

If the seller knows what he wants for an item but demands the potential buyer make an offer, he wastes everyone's time, including his own.

Simple rule to selling success: never place an impediment in the path of a potential buyer; it is a deal killer.
