Your friend has offered to sell you something. Write a letter to this friend. In your letter include:
-what the item is
-questions requesting details of the item being sold
-what price you think is fair
I hope this letter finds you in good health. I am writing regarding the MacBook Pro you have offered to sell to me. I trust you don’t mind my clarifying a few of the details regarding our pending transaction.
As you mentioned when we last spoke, the computer is in good shape aside from a few minor scratches to the screen. Can you confirm that these scratches do not interfere with the user’s experience? Also, I forget to ask you whether this computer is Wi-Fi capable and if the warranty is still valid. Would you mind getting back to me with this information?
I’ve had a think about the value of the computer, and I would like to share my thoughts with you now. Assuming that this machine is both Wi-Fi capable and covered by a warranty, I would be willing to offer you $700. If you can accept this price, I would be happy to come by your home this evening to finalize our exchange.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
