Default Is anything selling now?

I listed my 390 7 days ago at a price I thought was cheep. not one bite or question about the boat.
Hell, 85k for a 390 that will run in the 80s. on a trailer.

most people are either tire kickers or they're scared of what the economy is doing. A lot of people may lose their jobs and if that is a possibility then they arent going to buy a boat. but someone buying a boat like yours i doubt worries about losing their job. 85k does sound like a hell of a deal.

I thought my Nova would sell right away being a inexpensive entry level power boat. I only have had one call and I have make offer.

Credit is shut down for most.......people with 85K cash are probably working the market.

Don't get your hopes up...

We normally purchase 20-30 homes directly from the banks monthly...Across the nation...

We are current liquidating properties from our portfolio and are having the same problems you are experiencing with your boat...

Renters aren't paying, buyers can't get financing and investors want the properties for nothing...

In addition...an empty property means a stripped property...

If you are a marginal/cash poor investor/landlord and don't have the cashflow ride out the market down turn...

Then, expect many sleepless nights...

For example...

We've listed this 30 day auction property 3 times...

Good Luck...
