The Final Steps to Buying or Selling a Jet or Turboprop Aircraft - Step 9 of 9


Hello Jake Huling here with Aircraft Sales Advisor, and welcome to the ninth and final video report in this series called, 9 Steps to a Successful Sale or Purchase of Your Plane, which by the way, because of requests, we are working on turning into a book/manual that you can refer to, so that is exciting. 

In the last report we talked about all the information you’ll need to gather together and have ready for the sale of your current plane, and the information you should be asking for when you’re looking at a potential plane to purchase. We also covered what a good professional spec sheet should look like and the information that should be included in one that you are making or requesting.

So now let me congratulate you because if you’ve been following us from the beginning of this particular series we are almost there, and at this point we can start talking about actual offers, a very exciting part of the buying and selling process. And we’ll take a look at both offers you are receiving for the plane you are selling, and offers on a plane you are hoping to purchase. We’ll also talk about the good and bad of a Pre Purchase Inspection and what you must avoid during one at all cost. And lastly we will talk about recruiting help, whether or not you actually need help, and if you do how to find the right help.

Ah, the offer. Whether giving or receiving one, its the very thing we’ve been working toward from the beginning. This can be the most exciting and at the same time frustrating and even nerve racking part of the whole process. What’s makes the difference? Well a lot of what makes the difference between being excited or frustrated is whether or not you were prepared and had proper expectations, and it doesn’t matter if it’s a purchase or a sale, it’s all about preparation and proper expectations, I’m telling ya, that is the key.

Gathering the Proper Information When Buying or Selling a Jet or Turboprop. Step 8 of 9.

Putting Together the Right Information for a Sale or Purchase of Your Plane. 


Hello, Jake Huling here with Aircraft Sales Advisor. I’d like to welcome you to the eighth video report in this series called, 9 Steps to a Successful Sale or Purchase of Your Plane.

And why yes, my beard is fuller, thank you for noticing. You might also notice this lovely white board we have here in the back ground. I have some friends in the film industry who suggested this so it would easier to keep track of the different topics we’re covering. So together you and I will see if I can figure out the best way to use this white board the way they suggested.

In the last report we looked at the used aircraft market and I showed you three important pieces of information that you have to know in order to determine the accurate value of your current plane, and to find out what your next plane should really cost.

In today’s report were going to cover the information you’ll need to gather together and have ready for the sale of your current plane. It’s also the same the information you should be asking for when you’re looking at a potential plane to purchase. That’s a lot of p’s.

So let’s talk information. Specifically, the information you’ll need to have in order to answer all of the

What You Should Know about the Used Aircraft Market. Step 7 of 9.


Three Things About the Used Aircraft Market You Need to Know. 

Hello Jake Huling here with Aircraft Sales Advisor. I’d like to welcome you to the seventh video report in a new series called, 9 Steps to a Successful Sale or Purchase of Your Plane.

In the last report we covered Setting Aircraft Budgets, realistic expectations, and the three most common mistakes sellers and buyers make in that area. In addition to that, we talked about the importance of keeping your eye on the trade difference, when both selling and buying a plane. And I explained to you what in the world a build plane was?

In today’s report we’re going to look at the used aircraft market, and I am going to show you three important pieces of information you'll need to know in order to determine an accurate value of your current plane, and to find out what your next plane will actually cost. This information combined will give you what you need to know, in order to determine an accurate value of your current plane, and to know what you should really be paying for your next plane.

So let’s get right to it.

First let’s start by taking a look at advertised aircraft, because this is really where most people will start their search.

These are planes that anyone can find because they're advertised on many of the popular listing sites like Controller. And these are the same Aircraft Listing Sites that I covered in the last report, when we looked at some of the common mistakes buyers and sellers make when looking at aircraft on these sites. 

Now, the planes you'll find on these sites are listed by both brokers and owners and there’s a few things we can learn from the information that’s available to us on these sites.

Three Common Mistakes when Buying & Selling Jet and Turboprop Aircraft. Step 6 of 9.


Setting a budget and understanding the trade difference:

Hello, Jake Huling here with Aircraft Sales Advisor. I’d like to welcome you to the sixth video report in a new series called, 9 Steps to a Successful Sale or Purchase of Your Plane.

In the last report we covered one of the more confusing factors when determining a plane's value, and that is, aftermarket upgrades. We looked at upgrades from three different perspectives. 

One, if you own a plane with upgrades, what they are worth. 

Two, if you own a plane and are thinking of adding upgrades, what makes the best type of upgrades and where should you spend your money. 

And three, if you are buying a plane what type of upgrades you should be looking for, and how much you should pay for them.

In today’s report we’re going to cover budgets, realistic expectations, and the three most common mistakes sellers and buyers make in this area. 

And in addition to that, we're going to talk about the importance of keeping your eye on the trade difference, when both selling and buying a plane. And what in the world a build plane is? 

So let’s get right to it.

Setting your budget:
Two of most common and potentially challenging questions when setting a budget are: 

One, how much of what we want and need in a plane, can we get with our current budget? 

And two, how much of what we're hoping to get for our current plane is realistic? If that sounds at all familiar, you are not alone. 

These two very common questions both have very similar answers.
So let’s start by taking a look at the three most common mistakes sellers and buyers make in this area.   

·  #1 is What I originally paid for my plane.
Now stay with me, because this one gets a lot of owners in trouble and I'll give you an example of how it happens.

Understanding the Value of Aircraft Aftermarket Upgrades. Step 5 of 9


The Value of upgrades:


Hello, Jake Huling here with Aircraft Sales Advisor. I’d like to welcome you to the fifth report in a new series called, 9 Steps to a Successful Sale or Purchase of Your Plane. 

In the last report we discussed Selling a Plane on Your Own and the pros and cons of this approach. We also talked about the importance of keeping control of your information; how to handle brokers when they call you about the plane you are selling or wanting to buy. And why, when you are buying or selling a plane on your own, it’s so important to know your numbers. And to know why a plane is worth what you are asking, or is only worth what you are offering.

You can also check out the first video in this series were we cover the Top Complaints about Aircraft Brokers.

In this report we’re going to cover one of the more confusing factors when determining a plane's value. And that is aftermarket upgrades. And we really want to look at this from three different sides. One, is if you own a plane with upgrades, what they are worth. Two, if you own a plane and are thinking of adding upgrades, what makes the best type of upgrades and where should you spend your money. And three, if you are buying a plane, what upgrades you should be looking for and how much you should pay for them. So let’s take a closer look.
