I currently own a Cessna 182 and my I have suddenly developed a desire for a new plane. I am looking for something with a glass panel, air conditioning and a faster airspeed than the Cessna.
A few months back I saw a Cirrus in the $250k price range and have been watching it since then. The plane is a 2006 and loaded with some great options.
My only concern is that the plane appears to have been on the market for at least a year as have a number of the other planes I have been watching. I don’t want to buy a plane that I will have trouble selling when the time comes. Also, If I keep the plane 5-8 years and then try to sell it, I am wondering how much of a hit I am going to have to take on the original selling price.
I realize that any plane purchase is not an investment opportunity, but I don’t want to fly this plane a for several years and then have to sell it for $100K below what I paid for it.
Thanks for any advice you can provide. Jessie Paul
