Re: Should I have a Buyers Broker?

You most certainly do not need a "buyers broker".

Unless, you have someone in mind that you trust and you are sure they know much more than you.

Boat brokers are like real estate agents, most of them simply open the door, let you in and act like they know what they are talking about.

If they knew more they would be surveyors or lawyers. (don't get me started on

Spend your money on a lawyer and let them look over anything before you sign it.

That being said, there are a few out there that are honest AND knowledgeable. I've met two out of hundreds.
