Townsend Realty received 40% discount off the original price. This can be written as:

100% - 40% = 60% [100% indicates the 100% of the original price and the minus sign indicates a discount]

He also received an additional 20% off the discounted price for purchasing the property in cash

100% - 20% = 80% [100% indicates the 100% of the original price and the minus sign indicates a discount]

Therefore,

(x * 0.6) * 0.8 = 140000

x = original price

0.48x = 140000

x = 291,667

= 291,700
