Finding Used Car Best Price

By James Tano

You can get the very best price for the used car only when a brand new car from the same model is being sold at the highest price. If a manufacturer gives discounted prices for the new car from the same model, you can’t sell your car at the best price. In other words, the best time to sell your used car is when the prices for the model you have are at the highest.

Hence the important factor that affects the buying price of a used car is the price of a new car of the model you have with you. So it’s better to wait until the buying price of a brand new car of your model goes up rather than selling it when the manufacturer gives discount for a new car of your model.

Preparing your car for selling it is a must. You have to consider what the potential buyer thinks of your car. So you have to maintain the interior and the exteriors of your car properly. If your car isn’t clean inside and out, the potential buyer might not think positively about your car. This simple issue might make you lose a possible deal.

Therefore proper maintenance of your car is important to fetch a good price for your used car. Some people might overlook some serious problems in the car if the car looks shiny and glowing. Touch up scratches on the exterior and interior. Makeup the small dents in it. Balance the tires properly. Clean inside and out. This might fetch you a profitable deal.

The price of your car should take into consideration the mileage and the condition of the car. You could also consider the demand for that model. Cars that have run for more miles are often not preferred and maybe they are considered ‘used up’.

Hence a lot of people prefer cars which have run for fewer miles per year. Usually a potential buyer would think about the price that you have fixed for your car as the asking price and he would negotiate the price. It’s always better to have a margin of 5% from the price that you want to sell for so that you could negotiate that 5% with the buyer of the car.
