Tips for Selling Your Car

Planning to sell your car this spring or summer? Follow these quick tips to make everything go smoothly.

  • If you still owe money on the car you are selling, determine the payoff amount. If the sales price that you get for your car doesn't fully cover the amount you owe, you'll probably have to pay the balance separately.
  • Determine how much you can expect to get for your car. Estimate trade-in versus private sale price and check out used-vehicle guides such as Kelly Blue Book to identify a reasonable starting price.
  • Have your car fully detailed and get any needed repairs done. This can make a difference in how much buyers are willing to pay for your vehicle.
