Buying a Used Vehicle
Shopping for a used car can be difficult to navigate for the first time. Almost 40 million used cars are sold or bought between private and auto dealer sales per year. What do you need to know before buying a used car?
To shop for a used car, you should start by having a budget. This will give you a limit for yourself and dealers.
It will also give you an understanding of how to negotiate. When you have a price point, always negotiate under that number.
It is important to know whether or not your dealer is private or through a dealership. This video explains how to ask if the seller is a private or a professional dealer. You should also ask about the reason for the sale and the daily use of the vehicle. This can help determine the amount of usage the car might have.
Make sure to look for any damages to the car before offering a price. Ask for their price point before stating what you are willing to pay. They will usually say their higher price and you can negotiate down from there.
