Take great pictures. In order to sell your used car online effectively, you have to post great pictures of it in the listing. This begins by cleaning your car thoroughly before the photo shoot. Make sure the exterior is shiny and the interior looks immaculate. You have no idea how many interested buyers will complement you on how great the car looks online. I’ve had many people tell me that the only reason they came to see my vehicle was because it looked so nice and clean. Trust me, it makes a big difference.

Saving time. Selling your car privately can take a lot of your time. There is no given time frame for sell used car your used car, but with a dealer, it takes only one trip to the dealership. However, if you have the patience and understand what it takes to sell a car, this problem can be eliminated. At the end of the day, you still won’t yield the same profit if you sell your car privately.

The next thing you want to do with your ad is make it seem urgent. Say something like “first come first serve.” You want people to know that it is a car that will be sold quickly. The more urgent you make it seem, the quicker you will be able to sell the car.

I can’t stress enough the importance of a sparkling clean car. You MUST clean out everything if you want to get top dollar for your auto. People WILL spend more money on a car that has a “shine” to it. It gives the impression that the car has been well taken care of over the years.

In almost every case, the dealer will be happy to take a deposit and hold the vehicle for you (Never give them cash for a deposit and be sure it’s refundable!) for up to a week, sometimes longer. Time enough to be sure you really love that car you’re looking at, and time enough to sell your car yourself for plenty more than what the dealer will give you.

Dealers try a lot of tricks! They will tell you things like,” Oh! That car is in a bad condition.” or “This model is obsolete, no one wants it!” Don’t listen to all that and do not accept a lower offer.

After this is complete, the dealership will begin the advertising. Most dealers’ use anywhere from 45 – 60 different avenues of advertising to assure your car receives maximum exposure in the used car market. With more exposure comes a better chance of selling it quickly.

Now is time to take the pictures. If possible take the car to an empty parking lot or an area that will not have many background distractions. You want the car to be the main focus of the picture. Now take pictures of the front, back, side front angles, side rear angles, front interior, back interior and engine. Don’t try to hide any blemishes that the car may have. It will hurt you in the long run when the buyer comes in person to see the car. Disclosing all the information on your listing and your pictures will give you a much greater chance of the person purchasing the vehicle when they come for the test drive.

Getting someone else to 325i is a great way to avoid a lot of hassle. I might not get quite as much as selling privately but there are some companies that have impressive rates for cash for cars.

Next, the dealership will take care of the messiest part – the endless phone calls. Having to do this yourself is a pain as well as takes great amounts of time. The dealer will answer all questions concerning your used car as well as use their expertise in bringing in those that will test drive the car.
