Before you begin the trade-in process in East St. Louis, dividing the tasks into steps will simplify the whole undertaking. Here’s an overview of how to trade in your car:
Before obtaining an appraisal, experts recommend shopping around for a few estimates for your car’s current value. Using trusted websites like the Kelley Blue Book® Value or Edmunds Appraisal Tool® is a good first step. At Auffenberg CDJR, we also have a Value your Trade estimator, so you have a better idea of what to expect when you obtain an appraisal. The estimate for your trade-in will be based on your vehicle’s make, model, and year, as well as current condition and maintenance history. Also, before getting an in-person appraisal, you’ll want to research what cars similar to your make and model have sold for. This is necessary information for negotiation.
If you’ve gotten multiple appraisals, you’re in a position to negotiate. If you choose to accept the offer provided by the dealership, you can put the money towards your next new car – typically in the form of a down payment. Your next step will be to apply for a car loan or a lease.
