When trying to sell your financed car, you should try and sell your car as a private seller. If there is no success with that, try and sell it as a private seller through a dealership, and if all else fails you can always sell it to a dealer. The most important thing to do in order to sell your car as a private seller is to make it marketable; your car must be appealing to the customer. Clean your car inside and outside, fix minor scratches and scrapes, and ensure the car’s overall running condition is good.Put a “For Sale” sign and make sure you include these three things: Price, Contact Information, and Mileage; the customer should be able to figure out the rest. You should also show the value for a similar car in similar conditions and then price your car lower. Buyers would then know that you did your research, and you are willing to sell at a competitive price. Make sure to take quality pictures of the car and post “For Sale” signs at work bulletin boards and online websites like Edmunds.com, Craigslist.org, and Autotrader.com. Even in this economy, the combined effort should help you sell your car.If you cannot manage to sell your car on your own, go to a dealer and have them sell it for you. Usually this incurs in a management fee, but their services are very beneficial and will most likely get your car sold.You can also sell your car car directly to a dealer. This is the least desirable way of selling your car, but more than likely the fastest way of doing so. Dealers run the risk of not being able to sell your car and they need to make a profit, so a dealer will offer the least amount of money possible. The decision really comes down to how soon you want to sell your car, and what is the least amount of money you are willing to accept for it.
Everyone wants to find a cheap car that they can pay for in straight cash. The problem is that most of us don’t know where to look. If buying a cheap car is important, one should follow these steps, and the chances are, you will find your match.The first and most obvious rule is to always look where cheap cars are being sold. Start with the classified section in the newspaper or a regional classified paper. Many cars that are cheap are up for grabs for only a limited time. You have to make sure you always keep your eyes open for the greatest deals, for in most cases, they are on a first come, first serve basis. The Internet local classifieds are another spot to keep an eye on. You can occasionally find a good, cheap car for cash at a “buy here, pay here” used car dealership. Some of these cars won’t be trustworthy, but if you know cars, you might be able to find a real deal in one of these places.The second rule is to put the word out that you’re looking. There are a lot of cars out there that will never make it into the classified section, in that if the owner were approached with a great offer, he’d jump on it. You’ll just have to keep your eyes open and tell folks that you are in the market. There’s always the chance of finding a car with a “for sale” sign on it and if the owner is motivated to sell, he’ll probably take cash on the spot and let it go for below the asking price. If not, leave your name and number in case it doesn’t sell. You may get a call.The third rule for finding a cheap car for cash is to check with the mechanics and tow trucks in your area. Maybe this is your next step after trying a used car dealership. These businesses will sometimes end up with a car that came in to be repaired, or was once a tow that no one ever came back to claim. These cars can go up for sale for next to nothing so that the mechanic or tow driver can cover his costs.Banks and credit unions occasionally get stuck with a cheap car that was collateral on a loan. Financial institutions are far from the car selling business, so if they ever have one of these cars, they will usually unload it for very cheap.
