Sometimes potential aircraft buyers / sellers wonder why they should hire a specialist to assist them in the buying / selling process. With all the resources on the internet, many people enjoy the process of buying / selling an aircraft themselves. It is estimated that over 85% of people with college-level education research products online before purchasing. While that is a perfectly fine strategy for many products, buying / selling an aircraft is a highly specialized process. Having someone assist you as you buy or sell your plane can save you a lot of time and some potential major headaches (and actually save you money!)
An acquisition specialist can help you determine the right plane for your mission; they can explain the pros and cons of various aircraft as well as the aircraft’s performance capabilities and real-world operational costs. Think of it this way, people who operate their airplanes might buy two or maybe three aircraft over the course of many years while a solid acquisition agent will buy/sell hundreds over the same period.

It is in the buyer’s best interest to have an experienced agent working on his behalf and protecting him! Remember---when you see an aircraft advertised, that company is working for the interest of the seller!
When you are selling, a specialist can help you price the aircraft right so it actually sells. They can also get the aircraft listed in places you can't on your own along with sending it out to a far larger group of potential buyers. A broker ensures the paperwork is completed correctly and filed.
