This agreement allows the seller to use any intermediaries, professional or not.
Unlike the exclusive or semi-exclusive mandate, this mandate does not allow us to do co-brokerage and does not encourage us to risk that our efforts and expenditures are probably made in vain.
We avoid this agreement because, unfortunately, scammers claiming to be brokers scour sites and boat ads financed by honest brokers and seize the research work, merely established hack listings, photographs and other documents; they are called arm-chair broker (or crooked brokers). This type of mandate does not encourage us to work and spend about it because we know we have a good chance of losing the sale.
Sellers owners who think more brokers are on their boat, more they have chance of selling are naive; this is not how it works! Instead, organized and efficient brokers flee this kind of "can of worms"; ... They know that their work will be, mostly, parasitized by these characters and that competition between brokers kills the sale.
The boats you can see at many competing brokers, do not get sold, despite anarchic falling prices that only serve to stir up trouble among the few buyers contacted.
In case you still choose this formula (for example if you have already signed with a broker who does not practice the co-brokerage (there are some!), we will examine your boat and asked price before we decide.
