– Sell for a lower price
Yes, it is as simple as it sounds. So far you have figured out the fair market value for your vehicle, try selling it a little under. Capture some good images and make an intriguing Ad and post it on an online car trading/selling site. If you have a car in demand, then there might be very little waiting before you find a potential buyer. The downside to this tactic is that the customer who has his homework done might get suspicious of the fact that why are you selling your vehicle for a lower price and might think that there is something wrong with the vehicle. For which you should be prepared for test drives etc.
– Keep an eye out in your circle
There is always, or most of the time, a guy who has always been a downright fan of your car and wants to or would be happy to own it. In this case, ideally you can also trust the buyer as he is your close friend and the transaction should net you close to the actual market value that you will find online or have already figured out. Talking about ideal scenarios, you also might not have to clean up as much, as your friend would already have a very good idea about it. But still looking at the downside, things can also go downhill if an unfavorable instance is to occur after the deal is done and, in some cases, friends try to take advantage of your friendship and try to negotiate unreasonably. It is advised to still be as careful as possible because in this case you will have to look over the paperwork and the transactions.
Take a trip to car dealerships nearby. A dealership will be willing to buy you car if they find it in the right condition according to them. Make a round around a couple of them and compare the offers that were provided to you and make the best decision. It may be noted that when dealing with dealerships there are seldom negotiations and the dealership managers are in control. Either you take the offer, or you leave it. And your car should be at best because a dealership might not even consider buying if the vehicle is in poor condition or not in demand. The dealership is an option from out of which you might get the least.
Now that you are familiar with the above-mentioned tips and tricks or tactics or whatever you might want to call it. You can now take advantage from it and use it for your own good. If you implement on the above given steps carefully then you would have struck a deal before you know it.
