Re: Am I out of line on my boat offer?

I would add "Deal pending" to my listing, but I would not take it off the market.
Besides that, I think it's odd that someone would make an offer without knowing they can fulfill their end of the deal. I always knew what I could spend before making any offer ... On anything, boat, house, car.
I get the point, but as a buyer, I would not be willing to spend money on a survey, if you had the right to sell it to someone else in the meantime. If you're just saying you would keep the listing alive, I agree with that and find that is the most common practice. Call on a boat that is in survey, however, and the owner/broker should not take an offer.
