Checking Car Value with Kelly Blue Book Used CarsFriday, September 3, 2010 15:20
Looking for a good deal on a used car (or even a new car)? Make sure you determine the real value of the auto first. Probably the best way to do this is to check with the Kelly Blue Book value. By grading the car based on how old it is, how much mileage it has on it, and the general overall appearance of the vehicle, Kelly Blue Book can give you a pretty good idea of what the car is worth. People have been using them for years, so you know they’re pretty trustworthy.
If you’re looking to sell your car, looking at Kelly Blue Book Used Cars is a great way to make sure you don’t under price yourself — or overprice yourself out of a sale. If you really want to move a car fast, price it 5% to 10% below the blue book value. Anyone shopping for a car will immediately recognize the deal and take it off your hands right away. If you’re not in any rush, price the car about 5% to 10% over the Kelly Blue Book Used Car value. This will give you a little wiggle room with haggling and negotiating.
