When is The Best Time to Trade in a Car?

salesman passing over new car key

 

By keeping your older vehicle, you are saving on the cost of recurring monthly payments—and if your car is in good condition then it’s wise to hold onto it. However, the best time to sell a car is when the cost of maintenance is more than the vehicle’s worth. You’ll also know when to sell your car if you have ever felt unsafe while driving through Edgewater. Keep reading to learn more .

When to Sell Your Car

When is the best time to sell a car? The trade in process with Land Rover Annapolis is very easy, and used car prices tend to increase in the spring and summer. During these seasons you may be able to get the best price on your vehicle. Tax season, or rather post-tax season, leads to an increase in vehicle related purchases, so it could be an ideal time. Here are a few other things to keep in mind, and when to sell your car:

  1. Find out what your car is worth using our or other trade-in valuation tools and local market research.
  2. Find out the vehicle maintenance costs for the next year from your local Annapolis mechanic.
  3. Your vehicle’s value is unlikely to increase as time goes by, so if you think that the money you’d spend on maintenance would be better spent on a new car’s down payment, then now is the best time to sell your car!

If you aren’t spending much money on repairs, then it could be a better idea to hold on to your vehicle. Keeping your vehicle for a longer period of time could allow you to save more money for a future down payment, providing you with lower monthly payments on your next car purchase.

In most cases it’s better to wait until your vehicle has been completely paid off to trade it in—especially if the vehicle is worth less than what you owe. Although, it is possible trade in a car that you still owe money on.

How to Know It’s Not the Best Time to Sell A Car

When you are exploring when to sell your car, you’ll want to take in the national, if not international, economy. Presently, manufacturing difficulties stemming from the pandemic and the resulting semiconductor shortage are causing used car values to skyrocket in the Severna Park area. This could be good if you are trying to sell, as the market is working in your favor. However, the market isn’t in favor of buyers at the moment, and you may have trouble buying your next car. You can order your new car with our team at Land Rover Annapolis, and trade in your current vehicle when the new one arrives.
