Selling your car is a pain, without question. First you have to decide what the car is worth – seems easy enough, right? You go to kbb.com (Kelley Blue Book) for a value and maybe look on AutoTrader.com for vehicles like yours that are advertised. This is great approach if you are realistic about it but guidebooks don't buy vehicles for cash – they never have and AutoTrader is a classified advertising site for dealers, not so much for private sellers and the prices that you see are "asking" prices- it doesn't mean that cars are selling for the prices that you see online. So once you set an expectation for yourself with a target price, then you have to test it and see how close you can get to it… Here is a quick look at the steps required to sell a car yourself:
- Make decision to sell car privately (Weigh value of personal time expended, safety concerns, return)
- Establish target price
- Select advertising venue (newspaper, website, signage, Social Media, etc)
- Clean vehicle in & out
- Take several pictures (digital or smart phone)
- Write description/ad
- List all features/selling points (extended warranty, dealer service records, no accidents, 500W sound system, etc)
- Get VIN # for listing
- Purchase listing on reputable website (or use the Free site that is worth about what you pay for it)
- Wait for something to happen
You have to field phone calls, text messages late at night & emails plus set appointments which are missed and rescheduled. After you take lots of low-ball offers, you decide you have had enough and adjust the price down 10% and wait some more. Still, nothing…
Selling your car yourself turned out to be a whole lot more work than you expected and the you are nowhere close to the KBB price that you expected you would get…
