Is the premium markup of a used car dealer really worth more than a private seller’s? Compare the pros and cons of both.

Users enter information about the car and the system proffers Chevrolet Traverse LS Mondovi WI 54755 a number of prices. These prices are “dealer’s suggested price” and “private party value.” The two prices differ because of how used dealerships generally work.

Financing

Auto financing may factor into a car’s overall value at a dealership. Financing is increasingly popular in today’s auto market.

As a result, dealerships Chevrolet Traverse LS Mondovi WI 54755 have become effective brokers between shoppers and banks or other financial firms. Some actually offer their own financing, but according to some experts, this is less common than the seller acting as a third-party solicitor for a loan.

Dealer Markup

Some customers have issues with financing their vehicle through a third-party. In some cases this is called a dealer markup or dealer reserve, while some Chevrolet Traverse LS Mondovi WI 54755 call it “padding the deal.” Keep in mind that markups give buyers leverage during price negotiations.

Bidding slightly lower than the financed price is a good place to start. For example, if you’re approved Chevrolet Traverse LS Mondovi WI 54755 for $7,000, start your buying price at $5 or $6k. Additionally, you might consider bringing along a bidding specialist if you know of one.

Buying private can be a real gamble.

Think about the aforementioned details before purchasing your next vehicle.
