We all want to get the best possible price possible when we sell anything.
So we'll teach you how to get the best possible price when you sell your car.
By learning a few tricks from the Car Dealers.
1: The first thing that makes a big difference is appearance.
You're going to have a hard time selling your car when you can't see the carpet.
Or when the engine is leaking all over the engine.
These make people think that you didn't care about your car.
Even if you actually do. It just looks bad.
Dealers always prepare their cars for sale by getting them professionally groomed and detailed.
2: Dealers know that smart buyers check fluids. It tells them if you've actually serviced the car.
Clean oil is a gold colour. Used oil is black. Show the potential buyer the gold.
Antifreeze should be bright pink or bright green depending on your car and Full when cold.
Needs a top-up!
Oil and coolant is cheap. Replace it if it needs to be done.
3: Get the biggest audience to see that your car is for sale. Online listings are usually really good.
The key to a good online listing is:- Good Photos- Good Description

And tell the potential buyers about any obvious damage. It saves everyone time.
Nice and tidy.
Look at all that tread. This buyer won't have to worry about replacing tires anytime soon.
Descriptions should be sharp and to the point.
Think: Feature + Benefit.
Explain what these buttons do.
4: Pricing. Price it so it sells.
Or else you'll end up with it forever and it will be worth nothing.Sharp prices generate interest.
