Re: Initial Offer Question
I paid asking because I wanted the boat and needed time to come up with the cash. After he accepted the offer the P.O. threw in about 10k of additional stuff that he could have sold separately.
I don't consider re-sale of a boat when I buy it (i.e. will I get my money out). I buy a boat because I like it and it's sound and meets my need.
Julie, if this is YOUR boat, offer what you think will be accepted. If it's rejected ask for a counter, then counter that etc, but always stipulate final is on completion and possible rectification of survey/issues.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
