At any rate, you're right about the quick deal, with little effort on anybody's part and Congratulations are definitely in order. best of luck in your new boat search.

Hey trust me, the thought did cross my mind, and I still have that card to play should the seller try to beat me up based on survey issues.

sailingdog Hey, the way I see it... if you got your price... the 10% is worth it... especially with the speed and lack of headaches involved..

I got what I feel is a fair price in my pocket after paying his commission, the buyer is getting the boat at what they feel is a fair price and he gets his commisson. Seems like a win-win-win to me.

So it would be better to pay him a 10% commission after waiting weeks, months or years for the boat to sell while paying addtional storage fees the whole time?

cardiacpaul While brokers aren't my favorite humanoids, some of them are worth knowing, sounds like you got a good one!

sailingdog Good luck on the search MLS.... Buying one before the winter sets in might make more sense, since it gives you the additional leverage of the winter storage costs to use against the buyer. Also, it would give you a chance to outfit the boat with some repairs/modifications before next season.

PalmettoSailor Sorry I got some of you guys -- the tounge was firmly planted in cheek when I posted that.

SOooo, the search begins in earnest. I'm somewhat at a loss as to wheter to try to buy one quick, so I don't miss the fall sailing or take the winter to see what comes on the market.
