I'm new to buying
a large sailboat, not to sailing. I maybe making an offer soon on a Hunter
; and I hope to find insight to the purchase
process. I will look at a few boats using the recommendations outlined by Don Cassy in his book "Sailboat Maintenance
I'm a bit troubled that I need to make an offer " subject to inspection" before I the feedback of a professional surveyor
to help me determine the value of the boat
. I have been watching the market, trying to learning
the market. I my not have been focused, watching to many different models and types of boats, and some seller may have unrealistic values.
If I make an offer that to high based on the surveyor's report, do I just back out of the deal with my deposit? I'm assuming this is like buying
a home, if you don't like the inspection
, I walk with my deposit. It a bit unsettling.
Should I have my own broker? Any advice would be appreciated.
