Hello! I’m a lever harpist looking to purchase my first pedal harp. I’m looking at one used pedal harp I want to make an offer on. I have done some research on the model. The private seller is asking the 2020 price for their 9 year old harp. The seller is throwing in a few accessories: a bench and a case. The harp is in great condition and has been regulated every year, except for this year.
How do I negotiate for the lowest price? How low do I make my first offer? $6k off the asking? (Factoring in the cost of a regulation?) How would you go about it?
Thanks in advance!
