Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell

That's easy, d0n. You can't get a sale unless you get the customer in the door. If you've got the contract with the seller, no one else does. So you take both off the market and when things are slow you can adjust them down. Or not waste much time on it. Have you ever noticed many brokers didn't waste any time finding out details? "Here's the listing, have a nice day."

I'm not saying that's the best way to do it, just that it is done that way quite often.
