Good luck. I just worked through several low ball offers and we responded to all of them. In fact we couldn't get them up to an acceptable point, but along the way, several offers came in that were reasonable and we negotiated one of them to an acceptable level and will soon close. That it the other truism in real estate, very often when one offer comes, others follow - like bugs attracted to light. So my recommendation is to work what you have and hopefully you will be able to get this guy in a more acceptable range or others will follow.
Good luck to you,

Best of luck to you!
1. proof of funds
2. find out what you will net out. Wisconsin charges a trans fee tax when you sell
3. you will have to provide a buyer with a title. This is also cost.
3. Don't forget you will owe your property tax since Jan 1 2010.
4. You will have to pay for someone to close on the sale.
So take your time.

If you haven't already done so, you need to have a market analysis done. How does your property compare to others in your neighborhood? The option is yours at this point. I have seen counter offers go back and forth many times before agreeing on a price. The negative is that you risk losing the buyer, but if they are truly interested in your property they will mostly work with you to come to an agreeable price.
Remember, your home is only worth what the buyers are willing to pay for it. It's hard for us as home owners to come to grips with the fact that our homes are not always worth to others what it is to us.
Get a market analysis and base your counter on fact not emotion.
