This can be confusing.
Never lose focus on the concept you are negotiating.
The one who blinks first loses.
I've bounced 'last offers' as many as six times before closing.
This is were your agents understanding of negotiation and game theory is essential or realizing there is much more to a purchase offer than the price.
If the home has been on the market 4,111 days, 'One and only' may not be real OR you now know why it has been on the market for so long.
Consider, if while you were visiting the home, were other buyers lined up to enter as soon as you left?
'One and only" can mean there are competing offers in the air.
There is no way for you to know with certainty.
Now is the time for you to offer what the home is worth to you and shorten the dance.
Best of success,
