How Do Dealerships Determine Trade-In Value?

Everyone wants to get a good return on their investment, and if you’ve chosen not to sell your car privately, you’d be smart to ask questions about the appraisal process at trade-in car dealerships near Westport and Roxbury. Most importantly, how do dealerships determine trade-in value?

Although the factors that are considered may vary from place to place, virtually all dealerships that accept trade-ins will consider the following points:

  • Make and Model: Different models have different base prices. Although a dealership won’t necessarily consider what you paid for the vehicle, they will need to know what kind of vehicle you drive in order to make an offer.
  • Age and Mileage: Once the basics are determined, the dealership will need to know how much your vehicle has been used. It should go without saying that newer models with lower mileage will fetch higher prices than models that have seen better days.
  • Market Prices: Current local market prices for similar vehicles will absolutely be considered before you receive an offer. (When you value your trade-in here, Kelley Blue Book┬« can immediately cross-reference the information that you provide against the data that they have on used vehicles.) If your offer is lower than the current going rate for a similar model in Bethel or New Salem, it’s because the dealership will need to make changes or repairs to sell the vehicle and secure a profit.
  • Condition: Dealerships will want to clean a vehicle’s exterior and detail the interior before selling a vehicle on their lot. If you don’t take care of these steps in advance, the cost of the work may be deducted from your trade-in value. A vehicle that has not been detailed will not sell as quickly, and since it costs money to maintain the stock, the dealership won’t be able to offer you as high of a return.
  • Maintenance: A well-maintained car can be sold for much more than a model that hasn’t received necessary services. Although it isn’t necessarily worth it to make major repairs before trading in your vehicle, preventing major issues through routine servicing will net you a higher return.
