I ignored this message for a little while as I was just about the show the car to first caller. During the showing when the buyer asked about possible reduction on my $350K asking price I said "you can make me an offer and I'll consider it but first I'm going to go show the car to this other buyer who sent me this whatsapp message" (and then I showed it to him) . So he understood that an offer lower than my asking would likely mean the car would be purchased by someone else. After his mechanic gave thumps up we took a short test drive and before the drive was over we had agreed on a sale.
