FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT USING A BROKER:
not run some ads and sell it myself?"
Though expensive and time consuming, placing the
advertising is the EASY PART. Most
sellers are unprepared for the hundreds of telephone calls, e-mails and faxes
necessary to sell an aircraft.
Few owners have a realistic view of their
aircraft's true market value, relative to the ever changing competition at any
point in time. This price guidance is essential in determining whether or not
an offer is acceptable and in making the sale versus constantly missing by a
Over 95% of retail aircraft that trade hands in America today trade in and thru professionals. It makes sense to have a professional
on board from the beginning instead of wasting valuable time and money going
down a unproductive path.
FEW OWNERS ARE
PREPARED TO ACCEPT TRADE-IN AIRCRAFT. Most dealers and some
brokers can facilitate the transaction by accepting a trade. If trade

If an exclusive broker's commission rate is too
low, he will skimp on advertising and other services. Worse, few brokers
advertise aircraft they have signed up at unrealistically low commissions.
They then direct the buyers to other non-exclusive aircraft for more profit or
higher commissions. The exclusive broker needs to be fairly compensated to
perform the full array of responsibilities involved to properly market and
ultimately sell your aircraft.
not choose the broker who thinks my aircraft is worth the most?"
The exclusive broker who "highballs"
the value of your aircraft does you a grave disservice. Unfortunately, some do
just that, in order to get exclusive listings. They will either give a sad
story later about the declining market, or your aircraft will languish while
