Buying from private seller
I'm looking at a boat for sale by owner that is in my state, but about 150 miles away. It is a documented boat, and I want a survey.
How can I hold the boat from being sold to someone else. Should I get a broker involved to hold a deposit, and to handle the closing? What would be a reasonable fee for his service.
Should I take his word he will delay sale to someone else
Is it risky to pay him after the survey, and take his word that it is a clear title?
