What’s Your Best Price?

“What’s your
best price
on that red one?”

Customers ask questions like this on the lot and on the phone every day. It's almost always asked before they've driven the car, or even know if they're really interested in it.

It’s not technically an objection, but the question comes from fear. It’s designed to put you on the defensive so it’s useful to approach it like an objection.


Salespeople have shared a million variations on an old theme to address this question. It usually sounds something like, "the price doesn't matter if you don't want the car" or "it's already priced to sell".
