I wanted to buy a boat, and I saw a lot of good looking ones on the market.
I didn’t want to spend seventy grand on a new boat with new boat problems, so I looked at some of the older boats listed for sale by the owner.
One particular fishing boat with seats for 8 passengers came up in my listings. There weren’t many pictures of the boat, so I didn’t ask for more information. A few days later, I was looking at boats again and I noticed the same boat with more pictures and better details. I wanted to meet with the boat owner and get more information. I called the telephone number listed online and agreed to meet at the marina later that day. I loved the boat. It was really well kept and in good shape. The motors were practically brand new with less than fifty hours of usage. The only thing I didn’t like was the price and the owner would not budge at all. I knew the boat was worth every penny and probably a few thousand more than the guy wanted, but I only had so much liquid cash. In order to pay for the boat, I had to sell a property in Jacksonville. I have three rental houses in Jacksonville and a couple of lots. I sold the lot to a cash home buyer in the city who was looking to diversify his portfolio. The sale took very little time, thanks to the cash buyer process and I took the boat home about a week later.
