Fix Minor Damages
Does your automobile have any minor damages? Broken taillights, door handles, mirrors, glove box, ripped carpets and seats?
You may find that you can fix many of these minor damages for a very minimal cost. Why will this help you sell your car?
Think about this.
Most shoppers will ask a number of auto related questions - How many miles? Original owner? Any accidents? Is there anything WRONG that I should know about?
If you have to say "Yeah, there's a broken taillight, glove box doesn't open, and passenger door needs to be opened from inside." This immediately gives prospective buyer opportunity to offer you a substantially lower price.
It will be much harder to get price that you're looking for if there are little defects with your automobile. Fix as much as you can. It'll pay off in long run.
If you know when prospective buyers are coming, you might want to think about getting an oil change and/or replacing air filter prior to their arrival.
Also consider adding 'octane booster', or other similar products that temporarily improve engine performance. Especially important when prospective buyer takes your car on a test drive.
NOTE: Before buying any products, be sure to ask if particular product can be used in your year, make and model of car.
By simply taking time to make your car look its best, you will find that your automobile will not only sell faster, but will sell for more money.
Having an impeccable appearance will eliminate any doubts buyer might have about quality of care automobile has received over years.
Make sure and plan time to make your car look in top shape. It's well worth a few hours of your time to make and extra $300-$1500 . . . don't you think?
