Can I Trade In A Financed Car?
I’ve been reading a lot of information on how to trade in a car. There seems to be lots of advice available, and yet I can’t seem to find the answer to “What is the best way to trade-in my car?” I have heard a few suggestions, but they don’t make a lot of sense to me. For example, some people suggest that you should go ahead and list the car as a total loss value (TVV) to your current auto loan company. This is a tempting idea, because it is likely that the buyer will pay less than the trade-in value.
What I’m not sure about is whether you will actually be able to get more money from the buyer of your car, since they will probably be paying less for your car than what you owe on your loan. You could try listing it as a used car, but this might mean that the buyer won’t pay as much interest. Some people also suggest that you list it as a trade-in and list the loan balance as the price of the vehicle. The problem with this option is that if the buyer doesn’t pay the loan back, you have nothing to collect, and you are essentially just throwing your money away.
Can I trade in a car with bad credit? Unfortunately, I don’t think that you can ever get more money from someone with a lower credit score than what you would from someone who has good credit. People with bad credit may be able to negotiate a lower interest rate, but the truth is that you still need to pay cash, or have some other way of getting the car paid off. If you’re getting a decent rate on a new car, then there shouldn’t be a problem paying it off through cash. However, if you’re dealing with car finance and the seller won’t take the car off the market before you pay, then it might be worth considering taking the car to an auto-shopping place where someone who has done business with them can look over it.
What if I can’t trade in a car with bad credit? If you’re desperate for cash, then you may not want to wait until the end of your lease or your payoff period to sell your car. There are several options available for those who can’t sell a car with bad credit. You can get cash through a bank, and in most cases, if your car was repossessed, your lender will work with you to find you a new car that will allow you to trade in your old one.
Can I trade in a car with poor credit? A lot of people who buy their first car to try to finance it through a bank or other type of dealership. This is often a good option because you’ll have a great deal of leverage when you negotiate. If a dealer won’t take your car, you can shop around until you find a good buyer who will, hopefully, pay you cash.
Is there an option for someone who needs to sell their car but doesn’t have cash for it? Yes, it is! There is a special category of vehicle known as a Classified Auto. It’s pretty much the same as a financed car, except that you don’t have to finance it. If you don’t own the car, you can simply sell it to someone who does-and you will owe nothing to finance it.
Can I trade in my car? Of course you can. Even if you don’t have cash for a car, it’s certainly not impossible to sell a car in this economy. Dealers are more willing to buy it now that they don’t know if the car will ever be sold. They also don’t have to worry about loaning you money if they can’t get their money back.
When should I trade in my car? You should consider selling your car as soon as possible. Many dealerships buy in used cars all the time, and you could be right there, with your first paid off the car, within your local area. Check with your local dealerships, and see if they are buying used cars or preowned vehicles. That’s one way to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible. And by the way, you can even trade in your car at the dealership-most places will buy it at the trade-in value, so you won’t have to pay that fee.
