Dear [recipient's name]:

Thank you for your $7,500 offer on the 2000 Toyota Camry that I am selling. After considering this amount, I am responding to you with a counteroffer of $7,750. This is the lowest amount that I am able to accept for this purchase, especially considering the vehicle's excellent condition and features.

Please respond to let me know whether you would like to purchase the car at this price. If so, we can discuss further details, such as the date on which you can pick up the vehicle.

You may call me at 555-1235. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
