It’s important to know your market before you try to sell your car. As we are headed into winter, it might not be the time to sell the convertible. Trucks and other 4WD are hot sellers as soon as the first snow hits Denver. Be sure to check the going rate for your vehicle from private sellers. Dealers tend to have different prices. Private sellers are used to negotiating their prices, so you might want to aim slightly higher than your bottom line.
Giving your car “Curb Appeal” is crucial to get the fair market value. Before you write that advertisement, make sure your car looks clean and attractive. If you can’t get it detailed, be sure to vacuum out any pet hair and crumbs. Clean all of the windows and mirrors. Consider any repairs that you can have done before you sell, you might even want to put it up for sale right after you have an oil change at Mancinelli’s. Be sure to have all of your maintenance records ready to show the potential buyers. Having a CarFax report beforehand will save some time too. Remember, the new buyer will be judging you also. There is a lot of trust given when people see that you have been a responsible car owner with regular maintenance at Mancinelli’s.
