Why competent market research is imperative when buying multi-million dollar aircraft.
In the early 80's Bates Jet's principals pioneered providing buyers with aircraft market research services. At the same time the number of aircraft brokers exploded. Since most brokers did not do market research themselves several research firms began selling market data to brokers. Soon there was a robust industry providing brokers information. Many jet buyers have the impression that all brokers work from the same database. Not True.
Now that the Internet is flourishing, and information is abound, many buyers also believe they can learn about all available aircraft by surfing the web. Not true either.
Our experience shows, and our work clearly demonstrates, that resting a buying decision on one of these quasi listing services, or a broker who buys research data and who does not conduct market research themselves is not a wise choice.
Reason: we've located aircraft for buyers where their acquisition broker could not find the aircraft. The broker simply relied on data they bought from the quasi listing service without any back up research. Instead the broker promoted an aircraft we too knew about but neither the buyer or their broker knew about the jet we found via our research. All this was based upon what the jet buyer told us they were looking for directly.
Fortunately, we kept the client from buying at too high a price for a year older aircraft. Trusting their broker would have proven a disaster. The buyer was not too happy about having to pay his broker either for work they never did—work that we completed by doing our own research meeting the buyer's needs.
