Should I Trade in or Sell My Car?
We, at Reliable Auto Sales, recommend taking your car to Las Vegas used car dealerships when it is time to let go of your current car. Now is the perfect time to sell or trade-in. While both processes are completed at a dealership, they are distinct and come with different benefits.
Trading in a car is considered the easiest option. A dealer provides you with an offer for the vehicle, which is deducted from the total price or used as a down payment on the purchase price of another vehicle. Trading in also means less paperwork and fewer taxes to worry about as the dealer handles all of the paperwork required and you are only responsible for paying taxes on the remainder of the price of the new car.
Selling your car to a dealer is also a good option. If prepared, a seller can easily make more money than with a trade in, and the paperwork is still completed by the dealer, for the most part. This makes the process much easier than selling to a private party. Selling to a dealer is a great option for sellers looking to let go of an extra or unnecessary car.
How to trade in a car?
Trading in a car is the easiest way to get money for your car, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t require effort. A seller still has to prepare both himself or herself and the car so the highest amount of money can be obtained from the trade-in.
- Avoid being taken advantage of and research the estimated sale price of the car and use multiple sources, such as Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds, to determine an appropriate price
- Research which used car dealerships in Las Vegas make the best offers for trade-ins
- Learn to haggle
- Clean and detail the car
When should you trade in your car?
Trading in your car can make your life easier and is the best option for a variety of circumstances.
- If you need to make a down payment on a new car but don’t have the money to do so.
- If you need a new car and won’t need your current car after your purchase.
- If you need a new car as soon as your current car is sold.
