Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

As for those who set unrealistic prices - the market deals with them. Noone buys their boat.

Other not so smart ways to kill the marketing of your boat, include a hard nosed comment like Price firm! or, as one recent ad read, "i have no tolerence for low ballers or tire kickers!" gee, i wonder how many call he's getting?

The idea of marketing any product for sale is to get customer flow to your ad/site. location, product or item for sale. The last thing you want to do is say anything that will put people off. Usually, when such stand offish comments are made it indicates to me that the person is uncomfortable with the sales process, doesn't understand how it works, and is going to be difficult to negotiate with.
