Whether you’re getting ready to buy that car you’ve had your eye on for ages, or finally sell your trusty set of wheels and upgrade to a newer model, there are a few things you need to know.
By understanding some of the ins and outs of vehicle sales (including the all-important process of finding out what your car is worth) you’ll be able to get the best possible deal as a buyer or seller.
It’s all about the value...
Buyers and sellers are usually interested in one important figure – the sales price of the car they are buying or selling – and of course, the better the price...the better the deal.
The book value of a car is calculated by using a daunting-sounding financial tool called a depreciation formula. Fortunately, car brokers and insurance companies do the maths for you and publish the book value of cars on a regular basis.
The only problem is, book value is usually different than the price you’ll pay for a car, which results in many people asking themselves, “How do I know that the book value is the price that I should use to sell my car”?
