What has become a main concern to buying
the next boat is that many I would consider very suitable have been on the market for 3 to 4 years. At that time I didn't consider their prices to be outlandish ! The worry is that, when it comes time for me to sell, will I too, have to wait 3 to 4 years for a buyer ?
Or should I offer half the price
and be prepared to accept half when my turn comes to sell ?
Search for the right deal on the right boat. You will be much better off when you sell. Don't let your heart do the deciding, use your head
and be ready to walk away. There are two types of sellers, those that think their boat is worth more than everyone else's... and those that have come to their senses. It often takes 1-2 years to sell a boat, and during that time the prices just keeps going down....
