In a tight market, what ever you can do to get folks interested, is usually good. On the other hand, is it worth it to spend 4G to get an additional 2G along with putting an additional 10-20% in the brokers pocket..........

You can probably go both ways on this. BUT, if it were me, I would leave the price lower, and if she has not sold by the time you take the Dec cruise, THEN put the AP in it. I the mean time, a 50% loss of the cost to sell it quicker......I'm thinking I'd be better off dropping the price another $2G to make up for the lack of AP! Let the next owner spend the 4G on the unit they want.

This is my way of going at it. I've spent many folks $$ toing upgrades to homes landscapes to help them sell, some get the money back, other do too much and do not get there money back. This looks like one while it may be important, not THAT important!

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
