Bruce has some great points for you to check out. In this economy, I'd follow Tim's suggestion and low ball it first.

"If you don't know 'em you can't really humuliate 'em...too bad anyway." Then just wait a few days and if he still refuses your offer, then bring it up if necessary.

Just don't pay too much....they're more out there that'll be available.
