Negotiating The Offer

Question: If you were selling a home and a prospective buyer put a bid in almost 20% lower than asking, would you:

A) reject the offer

B) counter with a nominal counter of say $1,000 to $3,000 to stay in the game

C) negotiate as usual if/until an acceptable price is reached

Curious to see what everyone's thoughts are on this

I would answer B because I don't think you should ever turn away an offer. At least counter offer once to see how the negotiations progress.

It's a big step for a buyer to submit an offer, especially in the Hoboken and downtown Jersey City area and I never take them for granted.
