Should You Trade in Your Car or Sell Privately?

When it’s time to sell your car, most people consider two of the more common options which is to trade it in to a dealership or to sell privately. But there are pros and cons to these methods and also a better way, which we will share below.

Trading In – Trading-in your car to a dealership is convenient. The car dealer makes you an offer, and you put that money toward buying your new car. You also don’t have to handle the paperwork because the dealership will do it for you. You can also use the money from the car sale towards buying another car from the same dealership.

However, one major disadvantage to trading in your old car is that
you don’t get the most money that you can receive. Because the dealer still needs to make money on the car, they probably won’t give you retail value for it. Lastly, when a dealership agrees to buy your car, you’re obligated to buy your next car from that said dealership. So, if they don’t have a car that you want, you can’t trade in the car.

Selling Privately – Selling your car yourself will most likely to get you more money for your car because the buyer will end up using the vehicle themselves and won’t need to mark it up. But selling a car on your own isn’t always easy. There is a lot more legwork involved such as posting an ad, meeting potential buyers, going on test drives and dealing with banks, etc.
