Selling Your Car

Sell Your Car By Zach Bowman, DriverSide Contributing Editor


Selling your car can be a time-consuming, laborious process. There are advertisements to take out, money to spend and hours with potential buyers to muddle through, but it doesn’t have to be all bad. DriverSide is here to help you make the most out of your selling experience and your car at the same time. We’ve worked up five quick steps to take your car from your burden to someone else’s pride and joy. After you've prepped your car for sale , start by dusting off the digital camera and devoting a solid day toward squaring away the details necessary to get your used wheels to market. 
1. Price Your Vehicle
 




Determining exactly how much to ask for your vehicle is a tricky first step. Ask too much and you could scare away potential buyers. Ask too little and you could put yourself in a tough spot financially when it comes time to pick up your next ride . DriverSide has a great tool to help you figure out a good starting point. Simply enter your vehicle’s year, make, model and mileage and we’ll provide you with a national average price for that particular car. 
 
Don’t go slapping that number on your car’s windshield just yet. There are many factors to sift through when determining your vehicle’s worth besides its mileage. Is it particularly well maintained inside and out? Has it recently been painted? These are things that can bolster your asking price. Of course, the flip-side of that coin means that if there are any nasty issues with your ride – like a rough interior, scratched paint or rusted sheet metal – the price should fall below the average.
 
Where your vehicle is located tends to have an impact on what you can ask for it, too. If you live in an area where your particular vehicle is common, odds are there will be plenty of people out there looking to sell similar cars. That means your price should come down some to be competitive. A good way to get a feel for what you should ask is to look at similar cars for sale in your area. Evaluate their condition, compare it to yours and adjust the price accordingly.
 
It’s also important to build in a little comfort space in your price. That can range from a couple of hundred dollars all the way up to $500. This allows the buyer to “talk you down” somewhat and lets you get the most possible out of your car.
 
2. Advertise
 
There are as many ways to advertise your vehicle as there are cars on the road, but some are more effective than others. Far and above the easiest method is simply to stick a ‘For Sale’ sign in your car’s window and park it where as many people as possible will see it. While not exactly time consuming, the odds of someone driving by who’s actually interested in purchasing your vehicle is pretty slim. Instead, it helps to show off your set of wheels wher...
