Standing your ground and being firm to strangers does not come naturally to everyone but it is a skill that can be improved. Taking that first step is difficult but as long as you remain respectful and professional you can do it.
First, set the stage (firmness) upon initial text conversation with buyer.
Before meeting remind buyer of the agreed upon price, time & location.
Upon meeting state your price. If they are persistence on a lower price you restate your price. I will ask: Are you going to buy it? yes or no?
Be prepared to calmly walk away if buyer is not willing to pay asking price.
YOU GOT THIS!
