Some say there is an art to buying and selling cars. I’ve spoken about buying cars before, so, today I’m going to talk about selling. More specifically, how you can sell your car for as much money as possible:

Make It Look Good
I always say that if you want you car to sell, you have to make it look good. There are two key things that make people take a second look at a car on sale. And they are the price and the looks. If you see a car for sale online, and it looks amazing in the pictures, you take a second glance. People will judge cars based on looks; it’s just a fact. If you advertise your car with a horrible picture, don’t expect to get a lot of money for it. But, make your car look brand new again, and you’ll have a good chance of getting a lot of cash.
The easiest way to make your car look good in photos is to give it a clean. Get the sponge and bucket out yourself or find a professional car cleaning service. If you choose the second option, you could get your car looking nicer and shinier. But, it will obviously cost money. Once it’s cleaned, you can work on the photos. Make sure you take pictures in good lighting, so your car looks crisp and cleansed.
Sell It Online
Sell your car online if you want to get the best price possible for it. Why? Because more people will see it if it’s advertised on the internet. There are loads of sites online dedicated to selling cars. People can advertise their vehicle, and others can browse for a new car. As there are more people looking for cars online, there’s more chance one will find yours. In fact, there’s more chance that multiple people will find your car and fight over the price!
If I were you, I’d put my car up on multiple sites. This gives you an even greater chance of securing a healthy sale. But, once you sell your car, make sure you remove it from every site.
Be Stubborn And Patient
If you want a certain amount for your car, then don’t rest until you get it. Be stubborn with the price you set for it. Don’t let people try and haggle the price down a bit so they get a better deal. When someone contacts you asking about your car, it means they’re interested. It means they can afford it, and they want to know a bit more. But, everyone will try and haggle to save money. My advice is to stay stubborn and don’t stray from your asking price.
Similarly, be patient when selling. If no one is interested in your car now, that doesn’t mean they won’t be in a month or two. Don’t drop the price if you think it’s reasonable, be patient!
Follow this advice if you want to sell your car and get plenty of money for it!
