Why FSBO is Better for Buyers
Let’s start by addressing the buyers out there. Why is it better for you to purchase an RV that is for sale by owner? Below are the top benefits for buyers looking to purchase from the FSBO RV market:
Want to know a little secret about dealerships? They are quick to bump their prices up and add on fees. The result? You end up paying more than you really have to for the rig you end up buying.
Obviously, nobody wants to spend more than they have to on an RV. Fortunately, there are ways to save money. For instance, you can avoid all those extra costs dealers tack on by buying from an individual who only wants to sell their RV and isn’t trying to squeeze every penny out of your pocket in order to run a business.
If you’ve ever stepped foot on vehicle dealership property, you know how pushy those salesmen can be. This is because RV salesmen make a commission for every sale they make. This incentive means they get really good at putting pressure on customers, something that makes a lot of buyers uncomfortable.
Generally speaking, owners who are trying to sell their own RVs aren’t going to be nearly as pushy as those salespeople you come across on RV lots. Sure, they do want to make the sale, but their job isn’t on the line, nor are they likely to be as practiced as professional salesmen at high-pressure sales tactics.
More to Choose From
When you limit yourself to only what is available on RV sales lots, you’re limiting yourself more than you might think. You see, there is currently an RV shortage, meaning dealerships don’t have as many new RVs in stock as they normally might. Not only that, there are also many RV styles and floor plans that just aren’t available anymore.
By buying from an individual, you give yourself the option to buy a used RV that is no longer in production or is difficult to find new. This opens up all kinds of doors, especially if you are very particular about the setup of your tiny home-on-wheels.
