Your car's trade-in value: The facts

Trading your car is the best way to gain some extra pocket money to buy a new car but with the abundance of used cars for sale, is trading your car the best solution? There are many factors affecting the car’s trade-in value but how sure are you that your car is valued at the right price?

Location

Some of the facts The first thing you need to know about a car’s trade in value is that the price varies depending on your location. If you are trading your wagon car in the big city such as the New York for example, do not expect a high value. It might be a big city, but people prefer to use public trans portion rather than a car. Hence, the price will drop. A solution might be to trade it in another state.

Type of dealer

Type of dealer
There are two choices for trading the car. Either sell it privately or through a dealer. Private trade-in
The best thing about selling privately is that you could make more of a profit because you have the power to control the price and there will be no dealer’s charge. The drawback is that you might have to spend more for the off line advertisement. To avoid this, you can do it online but it will still require effort and time to get the right buyer. Dealer trade-in
The dealer trade in is easier because you will be able to get the money once the price is agreed on. You could cut car costs for any car repair and also advertisement as everything else, will be done by the dealer. However, the price will be reduced after deducting their profit but you will definitely get instant cash. You also need to negotiate the price to get more and you must know the right value for your car. This can be easily obtained through your car’s insurance company. It does not matter what type of dealers you are going to, just choose the one you are comfortable with. You also can get a copy of the Red Book Guide that will give you the approximate value of your car, something that no dealer will tell you.
