Not only can preparing a car for sale take a tremendous amount of time, it also frequently involves costly last-minute repairs and even assuming physical risk, especially with crimes like Craigslist robberies on the rise across the nation.
This leads some people to give up on selling their own used cars or to not try in the first place. In many cases, these car sellers ultimately turn to dealerships, trading in their used vehicles for lot credit. This option, while able to save time and direct costs, is often the worst overall option. For example, on any car that has a potential private-party value of less than $5,000, a dealer trade in will typically net the seller close to $0. This is because the dealer will not only usually offer far less than the true value of the car, but they will also pay in lot credit, forcing the seller to use the value of the sale to buy products with hugely inflated prices.
There's a simpler, better solution
While some people have the mechanical skills, patience, salesmanship, risk tolerance and cash reserves for repairs that are required to profitably sell their own vehicles, the truth is that most people who attempt to sell their own cars don't. But there is a simpler solution to selling you car, one that can net you about as much as selling to a private party, without any of the risks, hassles and costs of doing it yourself on the open market.
