Used house boats can be purchased through online boat classified websites, such as Boat Trader or iBoat as well as through online auction sites, such as eBay. These boats are sold by both dealers as well as private sellers.
Listing for used house boats on Boat Trader can be sorted by either geographic region, such as the state in which a boat is being sold or by the make of the boat. When a user selects a state, all listings within that state are displayed, with options to further narrow the listings by available make. Similarly, when sorting used house boat listings by make, users have the option to refine the listings by the seller's state. All listings contain information about the boat, including pictures of the interior and exterior, selling price, boat conditions and other details chosen by the seller.
When searching for used house boats on eBay, users have access to a wide selection of search criteria, including make, model, year of manufacturing, condition and price range. All individuals selling on eBay have ratings given by users who have made purchases from them in the past. This rating system is a good way to measure whether or not a seller is trustworthy.
