Your Home & Boat Services Source in the Florida Keys?
Boat Sales Professionals or Brokers are the agents that work on your behalf to list and sell a boat, or find you a boat to purchase; and sometimes both sell your boat and find you a new one when stepping up in size! Boat Sales Professionals or Brokers GUIDE you, ADVISE you, and REPRESENT your interests throughout the process, and even beyond your closing.
The process of selling a boat can become daunting. How do I list & market it? What is the right price? Is it “ready” to sell and what may affect the price? What paperwork do I need for selling it? Do I have time for selling my boat (listing, showing, etc.)? Conversely, buying a boat can be just as taxing. Where do I look for a boat? How do I know if a boat is a good deal? How do I know if the boat is in good condition and worth making an offer? How do I make an offer and what paperwork do I need? How can I protect my deposit? Do I have time to search for the right boats to look at?
Hiring a Boat Sales Professional or Broker to find you the right boat, or to list your existing boat can eliminate most of the stress that can come with the process. Additionally, Boat Sales Professional or Brokers are generally experts in the industry with many, many connections that can help prepare your boat to list, or complete upgrade work once you purchase your new boat.
