Why use a broker?
While placing an ad in an aviation publication is relatively straightforward, few owners are prepared for the ensuing telephone calls and emails. Prospective purchasers need to be evaluated and weeded out. Aviation has always attracted tire kickers, dreamers, and hopefuls. I've spent many hours ferrying around prospects who were going to buy that Pilatus just as soon as the Big Deal closes next month!
As a professional intermediary I can ask the hard questions and get the answers you need as a seller--proof of funds or financing prequalification, pilot credentials, etc. I have learned from hard experience to set up strict guidelines as to demo flights, prepurchase inspections, escrow, title transfer, etc. While you may successfully sell (or buy) without a broker, it will be a learning experience and even a slight oversight may cost you far more (in money and possibly in aggrevation) than the commission.
Give me a call today. I am always happy to discuss your questions, concerns, or ideas.
