Tips to Sell Your Car Fast

Eventually, and for any of many reasons, you will probably need to sell your car fast.  You might sacrifice some money in exchange for a fast sale, but such is the price of quick results.  Whatever the circumstances, we have some tips to help get that car out of your driveway.

Get yourself set.
You can’t sell it if you can’t show it.  Be available for people to see the car, and if you can’t always do it, ask a friend or family member to jump in.  Make sure you check local regulations regarding the sale of a car so you don’t encounter problems after the deal is done.  Have the title in hand, as well as any paperwork confirming the loan payoff if applicable.

Figure out your price. 
Compare your car honestly with others like it for sale near you.  Look up the private party value online--not to be confused with the retail price values you’d expect at a dealer.  Set a price that will make your car stand out from the others, and even still, be open to the idea that people will still try to knock down the price regardless.  

Get the car ready. 
When you’re trying to sell fast, extensive detailing might not be in the cards.  Give it a good wash and wax at least, and give the interior a good once-over.  If you don’t have time or funds to correct all maintenance or mechanical bugs, at least list the items.
