Re: The Search Widens Before it Narrows
The first broker has already handed us over to his brother citing "too busy"
as the reason. I think we wore him out......
Keep in mind that the broker is going to get to keep about 5% of what you pay for the boat, if their employer listed it. Half of that, if the commision is split with another listing broker. I think you're in the 40k shopping range. It's a 1K to 2k payday, IF you buy a boat with them. Think about how often the broker would need to close the deal to make a decent living.
They have to prioritize the clients they think they have the best chance with and is time efficient.
They often deserve some of their unscrupulous reputation, but you are better served having their help. On the other hand, you really do need to narrow down your thoughts, so they can help you. If they see it going to the other way, they need to focus on a better prospect.
