How Can I Make the Most Money Off My Used Car?

One of the benefits of purchasing a pre-owned vehicle is that most of the depreciation has already occurred, which means pre-owned vehicles deliver on big value returns when it comes time to sell.

Here are a few ways you can increase your vehicle value return:

  • Do Your Research: You want to make sure you have a good sense of your vehicle’s value so you can negotiate confidently. Check out similar models for sale, accounting for condition, mileage, and features, to determine your vehicle’s worth.
  • Clean It Up: You don’t want to spend a lot of money on your vehicle just before you sell it but taking a little time to clean and detail your vehicle can make a big difference. This shows you’ve cared for your car and really makes it shine in advertisements.
  • Take Good Pictures: You always want to highlight the best parts of your vehicle, and that means taking advantage of lights and angles. High-quality, well-lit, professional photography goes a long way to helping you find that perfect buyer.
  • Compare Your Offers: The first offer may not be the best offer, so it’s a good idea to take some time and compare your offers and options. Consider outside benefits, like full-cash payments, and always keep in mind your vehicle’s true value.
