There are so many different things to consider when I want to sell my car fast. The blue book or valuation value may be a lot different to the real value of the vehicle. Things that I take into consideration are whether or not the car has any optional extras installed, the condition of the paint work or interior and also the mechanical condition of the car. All of these things can have a pretty dramatic effect on the actual value of the vehicle. Finding the right price when I am attempting to sell my car fast can mean the difference between a long or short sale time.
If my car that I am trying to sell fast has any major mechanical faults I normally take a fair bit off the blue book value. Unless I am willing to go out and spend some money on getting the engine repaired (or in extreme circumstances) it is not worth lying to a buyer about what condition the engine is in. If the buyer is aware of the condition before they come and inspect the vehicle; the less likely it is that they will be disappointed with the vehicle upon inspection. I am no mechanic, when I intend to sell my car fast I will drop the price pretty dramatically even if the problem is something easily fixed. That way the buyer has a look and finds out that the repair is something cheap to accomplish then they are thrilled.
If my car has no longer got valid registration then I will also drop the price by around the cost of six months worth of registration. The buyer should not be overburdened with extra expenditure after they have purchased the vehicle. If you can save them money before they take it away then it is easier for them to spend extra on it once they have it. Some people go shopping for a car with a very specific budget in mind. The less you are likely to go over that budget then it is fair to suggest that there is a greater chance of selling the car to them. Treat the buyer like they are doing you a favour instead of the other way around. If they can walk away with a bargain then it will keep them happy.
