It's time to sell your car. Maybe you're adding a member to your family or perhaps insurance premiums are sucking your savings dry. Whatever the case, you need to know your options. Let's look at 3 of the most common choices for selling your vehicle.
For Sale By Owner
Ever wonder why you see so many vehicles parked in conspicuous parking spaces with "For Sale by Owner" painted on the window with an accompanying phone number? Because it works. If you have lots of time and patience, it can eventually pay off. For decades, car owners have managed to buy and sell their vehicles without paying a middle man.
Cons: Listing the car and showing it can be a hassle. Potential buyers can call at all hours of the day or night and make (and miss!) appointments. And most likely, if you are selling the car yourself, your buyer will want to haggle over the price. Paperwork--including title transfers, bill of sale, and registration documents--become your responsibility entirely. Pros: The primary benefit of selling your car yourself is that you stand to make more money than any other option. Additionally, you have complete control over the negotiations of the price.
Sell Car to a Dealership
Selling a car can be similar to selling a house. Most people’s first instinct is to go to a dealership.
Cons: Put simply, used car dealers have a reputation for being less than honest in their dealings. At the end of the day, they are more interested in making money for themselves than they are making money for you. While this reputation certainly doesn't apply to every dealer, it is worth noting. Also, haggling with the dealer can be uncomfortable and frustrating. Pros: One of the most obvious benefits to selling a car to a dealership is that it is more reliable than selling to a stranger.
