    NOT A TEACHER

    It is used mostly in the informal conversation. Often, when people say "say," or "uh" because they open up for the offer and they don't have the fixed price right at that moment.

    In this case, it means I can sell "it" for $2,800.

    *Not a teacher

    Wasn't it like this? However, I agree with kiwi_man.

    Now I can let it go for, let's say... $2,800.

    It means something like "suppose".

    Let's suppose I can let it go for 2,800.

    It can have let's but doesn't need to.
