|I am going to be moving to FL soon from IL...to go back to school...and I was wondering if I would get more $$ for my boat in the FL area or in the midwest. I am thinking of letting the dealer have a chance of selling it for me. |
What do you think?
|just my guess... i would think up there. only because everywhere you go down here there are ski and wakeboard boats. i would think they are more rare up there. but then again you might find more buyers down here... where in FL you moving? i used to live in IL and moved down here to go to school also.|
|going to go to UF. most likely start jan 03|
|When I was looking for my boat, I found a lot in the Ill., Mich, Wis., and Ohio areas. Reason is I think, people pay a lot of money then the season is short and it hits them that they are paying for 3-4 months. I also saw a lot of boats in the Va. and NC areas, which is where I got mine because it was about 3k less for the same boat. Just something to think about. Don't sell in the winter...wait till march/april when everyone wants a boat! |
|boats are cheaper in the south|
|I attended UF. I used to purchase a boat each year then sell it during the summer in Nothern Illinois. I used to turn about $3000 per boat. That was decent money in the mid 1980's. I found the increased cost of living in the Chicago area and the lower number of ski boats made the deal work. However, I do see a lot more inboards in the Midwest these days. |
