I am in favor of buying a boat in August- december.
Owners are willing to sell; now becasue of the above post
the owner is offering the boat for sale for what they think its maximum worth.
offer 1/3 of what they are asking. plan on getting rejected then come up to what your comfortable with.
Don't let the broker convince you to increase your offer until its rejected.
Remember the broker is getting a commission on what you offer
brokers are not your friend. remember 10% of your money goes straight into their pocket.
