If that doesn't work, your three options are:
* Pay the asking price.
* Wait. If the property doesn't sell, the seller may become more flexible on the price.
* Walk away.
Understand: There's no requirement that a seller negotiate at all. Beyond that, there's no absolute expectation that a seller will negotiate. Some are prepared to. Others aren't.
Hope that helps.
