Loading... Be Patient!

This is probably one of the many questions that people ask whenever they want to sell their cars. Selling a car is not a walk in the park, it requires some effort especially if you’re selling it to an independent buyer, not a dealer.

I need to sell my car fast can be a phrase that you keep repeating in your head over and over again. If you apply the following tips, you can sell your car fast and make that phrase a reality.

  1. Price your car accordingly

You shouldn’t exaggerate your selling price, it should be a realistic price; a price that matches the car. You can determine the value of your car by checking online classified ads to see how much sellers are asking for the same type of cars as yours.

When quoting the price, you should ask for a little more money than what you are actually willing to accept. For example, if your target is to sell the car at $15000, then you should list the car at $18500, because that way even when the buyer makes a low offer, you will still be close to your actual price.

  1. Create ads that sell

According to make sure you write a compelling description of your car. When creating the ad, you should be brief because little words can convey a lot. Apart from the price of the car, your ad should also contain the year, make, model mileage, color, the condition of the car etc.

As for the asking price, make sure to indicate whether it’s negotiable or not.

  1. Take good pictures

If you are selling your car online, this is a must.  They should not just be pictures but quality pictures that will attract the buyer’s attention.

You can take your car out of the garage and take it where there’s a beautiful background backdrop. You can use your phone or camera if you have. Take photos of the front, rear, and sides. You need to photograph the interior too: the seats and the dashboard. You can also include pictures of the engine, wheels and the trunk.

  1. Make improvements

If you want to sell your car faster, you’ll have to do some improvements. This will add some value to your car.You can start by giving a thorough cleaning of the car. You can do this yourself. You need to give much attention to the tires as well. You should replace them if there’s a need to do so. If the floor mats are old and unattractive, consider getting new ones. You can also add subwoofer to the car.

  1. Be available

For you to sell your car fast, you have to be available. This is because selling a car cantake some time especially if there are repairs to be done. There will be calls that you have to receive if you had placed it in classified ads. And there will be emails to reply as well.

Then people will be coming to see the car or you’ll be going for a test drive. And so you need to make sure that you are available for all these.
