How to say

  • Buying Price
  • Purchase Price
  • You name it

Note, I need the 'buying' term, as opposed to Sale Price.

It's for a form where the user should fill in how much he paid for the apartment and for how much he sold it.


Purchase Price works for me, especially if you put it just before Sale Price on the form.

    @Shimmy acquisition [note the c ]: An asset or object bought or obtained, typically by a library or museum. (or a publisher, etc.); An act of purchase of one company by another. Though it roughly means 'purchase', it is more narrowly defined than 'purchase'. If you mean the cost of the property including taxes, duties, civic/development charges..., then go ahead and call it 'Acquisition Price' (cost of acquisition). – Kris Jan 19 '12 at 9:22
