Finding The Worth of Your Car is Easier Than Ever Before
There comes a time for every person when it makes sense to sell. Luckily, gone is the day of shady dealer estimates and unfair pricing for your beloved car. Now, more than ever, it’s possible to get fast, accurate, and personalized pricing appraisals for your vehicle.
If you’ve ever considered selling your used vehicle or wondered how much your car is worth, then keep on reading to learn about the most effective ways to find the value of your car.
What’s My Car Worth?
Deciding how much to sell your car for can feel impossible. Luckily, finding out the worth of your car has never been easier. Nowadays, there are a multitude of online tools and fair-price calculators that will crunch the numbers for you.
The industry standard for the most up-to-date car estimates is the Kelly Blue Book (KBB) Value. The KBB value is trusted amongst car buying and selling professionals across the country, including us at Prieto.
Like Kelly Blue Book, we have been pricing vehicles for decades. Over the years, our process has become more robust, and now, we can lean on our years of experience to conjure up the most accurate price possible.
Ourselves, Kelly Blue Book, and other similar pricing calculators create estimates based on:
- Recent dealer transactions
- Car depreciation
- Trim level
- Year, make & model
- Accident history
- Transmission type
- Engine condition
- Custom details and features
Other Fair-Price Calculators
When it’s time to consider selling your car, we recommend that you use multiple sources of information to get the most accurate estimate, including Prieto Automotive.
Our car buying and selling professionals at Prieto Automotive can serve you as knowledgeable experts. But there are other price calculators that you should know about too.
Edmund’s Suggested Price
Edmund’s suggested price, formerly known as Edmund’s True Market Value, is another trusted figure for car value estimation. Whether you are looking to sell your car for cash, or as a trade-in, Edmund’s can help guide the process.
Edmund’s used car appraisal system even has “private party” and “dealer retail” options to help you get the right price depending on if you plan to sell to an individual, or to a dealership.
The Consumer Reports car value estimator is another valuable resource to consider when looking for the value of your used vehicle. The estimator from Consumer Reports functions like the calculators from KBB and Edmund’s. It provides you with a figure based on:
- The year, make, model, and trim line of your car
- The car’s conditions and mileage
- Any other options or advanced features your car has
