I know that the expression "Deal!" means that both parts agreed with the terms of a negotiation.
however, how would I say the following sentence, please?
"I'm going to see the car. If I like it, I'm going to ??? the deal and pay it in cash immediately!"
to "commit" the deal?
to "make" the deal?
to "seal" the deal?
if I am negotiating with the landlord and we come to an agreement, should I say "ok, sir, let's sign the contract"? how to say it informally?
I have found many entries for ''make a deal'' on the web. isn't it a common and informal expression?
"To make a deal" implies coming to a mutual agreement by negotiation to do something, rather than negotiating the terms of a lease.
I made a deal with my mum to take clarinet lessons if I could have guitar lessons as well >> I agreed with my mum to do X if I can have Y
"To close a deal" indicates the ending or completion of a negotiation to do or purchase something.
Peter Woo claims, for instance, that he can close a deal to buy a hotel in Asia in days
