So here are a few pointers for selling your car quickly. First and foremost, check the price. Have a look around on the web for cars similar to yours with similar mileage and in similar condition, you’ll not do very well if you list your car for more than what a potential purchaser could pay for a very similar car available on the same website. If you’re in a big hurry to sell it could be worthwhile to knock 2-10% off the price, but be wary off cutting the price down too much. Unfortunately there are a whole bunch of scam artists out there and experienced or savvy buyers often glance straight over vehicles that are priced way too low as they have the, often correct, assumption that “too good to be true” deals are exactly that.
