You’ve finally come to terms: It’s time to get a new car. But before you do, you have to sell your current car to have a little collateral for your new car purchase. You’ve never sold a car before, and you’re trying to determine the best way to sell your vehicle fast. Everyone seems to have their opinion, but you have to figure out what’s right for you. While our staff at Indy Cash For Cars would love to tell you “just bring it here,” we know you have to do a little research for yourself.
Therefore, let us help you out by presenting three possible and popular ways many Indianapolis drivers are deciding to sell their cars.
1. Trade it in.
One option at your disposal is taking your car to the dealership where you intend to purchase and trade in your existing vehicle. Most dealerships will apply the trade-in value of your car to your new car purchase. Kiplinger notes, however, that while convenient, the dealership’s trade-in value is often the lowest return you will get on your used car.
2. Sell private party.
It’s no secret that you can potentially earn the most money selling your car if you do it private party. However, selling private party also means the most work for you. You have to get your car in top condition (in order to get the max value out of it), advertise it, and meet with potential buyers. Plus, there’s no guarantee that you will find a buyer quickly. However, if you have the time, patience, and know-how, selling private party is not a bad option.
