Now that you know where to go this spring from our last blog post, it’s time to find or upgrade your RV to take full advantage of all these awesome destinations. There are so many choices before you when it’s time to buy an RV. Is it best to buy from a big-lot dealership? Is it better to buy from a private individual? Or, is it best to buy from a motor home broker? The last option has many advantages.
What is a motor home broker?
Essentially, a motor home broker is an advertising and marketing company designed to bring motor home buyers and sellers together. Once connected, they can choose to close the sale independently or use their broker as a facilitator to oversee the process, which is what many buyers prefer. A motor home broker does not control the price of motor homes it advertises, does not handle title or sales tax paperwork, does not take possession of recreational vehicles for sale, does not take title of motor homes for resale. Motor home brokers are paid commissions agreed upon before the deal starts thus ensuring a good price for both buyer and seller. That provides peace of mind at no extra charge!
What benefits are there to working with a motor home broker?
Motor home brokers try to be well informed on current market conditions in order to advise clients of fair market value. According to Cindy Green, president of New Port Richey-Florida based Motor Home Finders, they offer a level of security you can’t find in most other RV buying models.
“We protect to the best of our ability, the public against fraud, misrepresentation and unethical practices,” said Green.
Motor home brokers are well informed and experts in the transaction.
Moreover, motor home brokers like Motor Home Finders strive to learn all pertinent facts concerning all the RVs for which they accept listings, so that they may present a fair description of the RV. For the protection of all parties involved, they see that financial obligations and commitments regarding RV transactions are in writing, expressing the exact agreement of the parties; and, that copies of such agreements, at the time they are executed, are placed in the hands of all parties involved. All without those parties having to lift a finger.
Equally important, motor home brokers can often provide a history of the RV, how it’s been stored and used, whether or not smokers or pets were among its frequent travelers, and provide referrals to lenders and insurers.
If you’re looking to buy your first or upgrade your RV, a motor home broker like Motor Home Finders is the best place to start.
