There are many different benefits you could gain by choosing to buy campers for sale by owner, rather than buying campers from a dealership, or buying them from an RV auction. I think that you can find some of the best deals when you buy campers for sale by owner for several reasons.
First of all, when you buy a camper for sale by owner rather than buying one from a dealer, you are already showing some great signs of intelligence. Most of the time, dealerships have a 30% to 45% markup on their inventory. This means that they have found owners who are willing to sell to them for a very low trade-in value, and then they will typically mark up the price significantly higher, so they could sell it to you and make money out of the purchase. If you take the time to do a lot of searching, you can find people willing to take 40% less than the dealer retail value, or 20% less than the private party value.
These people are known as motivated sellers. They are typically motivated by some reason other than money to sell their RVs quickly. It may be that the owner is selling to avoid a foreclosure. Another reason may be that the owner is going through a tough divorce. Or worse, it could be that the owner has lost his job and can no longer afford to keep his RV. If you can find out what reason they have for selling, and how you can help them solve their problem, then chances are that you will be able to also save yourself a lot of money.
Another reason why you should buy used campers for sale by owner, is that they are a better deal than buying from camper auctions. Although you can occasionally find a better deal at an auction, when you do find it, you have a lot of competition from other expert RV buyers and dealers. Often, they will bid up the RV to the point where there is very little money you are saving. Because you can have a lot competition when you buy a camper at an RV auction, it would be a wiser choice to look for RVs for sale by owner. Also, you do not need to have cash at the time that you make an offer when you buy from an owner. When you buy at an auction, you need to have cash in hand that day in order to pay for the camper, otherwise you lose the deal. So buying from an owner is a lot less stressful and you don’t have to make your decision quite as quickly.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg
