I am a 52 year old dreamer. My pre-retirement bucket list is to buy a plane and earn my PPL, then other ratings in retirement. I’m not ready to pull the trigger on a purchase yet, but my nightly and dangerous hobby has become searching the message boards and the usual sale sites for a plane. I have noticed many planes that seem to be on the market for a long time and no change in the price, and some planes show up and are sold in a couple days. Are the ones selling quickly priced too low or at the “true” market price on average? Are the long term for sales priced at sentimental value instead of reality? I used to own a bass boat dealership years ago and it would seem some owners would hold on to a boat too long because on memories or whatever and the boat would sit and rot, rather than being realistic on the price and let someone else purchase and enjoy it. Like a boat, I’m learning a plane needs to be used frequently. Thanks for allowing a new guy to ramble.
