The Process of Selling a Yacht
At Fort Lauderdale Yacht Broker, here are the general steps that we follow when listing the yacht for sale.
Enter the agreement
We, at Fort Lauderdale Yacht Broker, practice the central agency agreement (also known as the exclusive listing). In this case, you will hire a specific broker to sell your yacht. For instance, you hire us to be your exclusive partner in selling your yacht. We have access to websites such as YachtWorld.com, which has become the standard for searching from anywhere in the world. It does like the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) of the real estate brokerage community, which is essential in selling real estate.
By allowing us to sell your yacht, we can list it through a co-brokerage agreement, which requires a split of the 10 percent commission with the buyer’s broker. Well, most of the brokerage sales are co-brokered, so this is just normal.
After reaching the agreement, advertising the yacht will be the initial step. Typically, the broker will have your boat photograph and write compelling descriptions about the yacht. They also list the specifications, including the manufacturer, the year built, specs, model, and the current condition of the boat. Your broker will research to give the boat the fairest pricing, and generally, we have the experience in pricing the boat more realistically.
Fort Lauderdale has access to a wide range of advertising resources. When you list with us, your yacht will automatically appear on the different internationally known websites.
Your broker will control the communication to keep the emotions out of the negotiation. They will screen out potential buyers to assure you and their time is not wasted. They will showcase your boat to prospective buyers while saving your time when buyers do not show up or find themselves uninterested in the boat.
We will report all legitimate offers from potential buyers to you. Your broker will also negotiate the selling price, like this, from where your broker can earn his/her commission.
Your broker will prepare the sales agreements and accept deposits. Most brokers today have applications, wherein they can access through their tablet, computers, or even through the smartphone that helps them through the entire process. It can save you from mistakes along the way.
Moreover, they arrange the required marine survey and sea trials. It is because many sellers prefer not to be present during these times. Many selling brokers do not allow it in their agreements. Lastly, the broker arranges the closing and transferring of funds to the banks and other institutions. They are also responsible for documenting and registering the vessel for the new owner.
