    Re: Oh, dear,, I think I was misheard it.

    A: I've looked at lots of houses and this is the best one so far.

    B: Oh, that's good. So do you want to rent it? It’s $180 a week.

    A: Huh? Didn’t you say it’s $118?
    Oh dear, I guess I didn't hear it right. / I guess I misheard it.
    Sorry, I can’t take it then. That’s [way] over my budget.

    B: What’s the maximum rent you can afford? Or better: How high can you go?

    A: It’s embarrassing to say, but I can’t go over $130.

    B: Sorry, that's not even close. The lowest I can go would be $160.
