When to Sell Your Car

salesman passing over new car key


Holding on to an older vehicle will save you money, but it’s a good idea to trade in your car if the vehicle you are driving costs more to maintain than it’s worth! It’s also worthwhile to sell your car if you have ever had cause to feel unsafe on the roads of Greenwich and New Canaan. Not sure what decision to make? We’ll help you make the right one for you.

When is the Best Time to Trade In a Car?

It’s pretty simple to trade in your car at Land Rover Darien, but when is the best time to sell your car? Used car prices tend to increase in the spring and summer, so this may be the best time to sell your car. People are also more likely to pay more for a vehicle after receiving a recent tax return, but there are a few other things to keep in mind. Here’s how to determine when to sell your car:

  1. Find out what your car is worth using trade-in valuation tools and local market research.
  2. Take your vehicle to a mechanic and find out how much it would cost to maintain over the next year.
  3. Your vehicle’s value is unlikely to increase as time goes by, so if you think that the money you’d spend on maintenance would be better spent on a new car’s down payment, then now is the best time to sell your car!

Holding on to an older vehicle could be a good idea if you won’t have to spend all your money on repairs and maintenance. If your vehicle is in pretty good condition, holding onto it for a longer period of time might enable you to save up for a bigger down payment, which means you’ll have lower monthly payments down the line. When you decide to make the leap, let us help you learn how to trade-in a car the right way.

It’s almost always better to wait until your vehicle has been completely paid off to trade it in—especially if the vehicle is worth less than what you owe. However, you can trade in a car that you still owe money on.

When is the Best Time to Sell a Car? Not When…

The current manufacturing difficulties stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying semiconductor shortage are causing used car values to skyrocket in the Stamford area. If you’re still on the fence about selling your old vehicle, knowing that the market is working in your favor might be enough to sway your decision.

On the other hand, it’s important to note that the current market isn’t the best for buyers. You might have trouble finding the perfect vehicle on a lot, but you can order your new car through our dealership near Stamford, and trade in your current vehicle when the new car comes in.
