The prospect of buying a car will come with many mixed feelings. Joy, excitement, adventure, and sometimes even fear. Unless you are on
top of your game in the negotiating arena, fear will be there, too. With proper education, and a few pointers listed here, buying that
car will not be so scary.
When starting the car buying journey, you will most likely have set criteria in your mind. Make, model, year, mileage, and what your price
range is should all be on this list. After checking out the places one goes to buy a car, a few candidates will surface. The present owner
of that car will also have their own criteria in place. This will probably be the price they want to get out of it. After looking at the
vehicle, and deciding that you would like to buy the car, try these couple of tips.
First, make known all discrepancies you have found. The current owner will not be too quick to point these things out. By doing this, an amount
will probably be taken off the asking price. Don't be too eager. Unless people are lined up to buy the car, don't make an offer at the start.
Go home, sleep on it, think about it, and most importantly, talk it over with your significant other. If everything is a go, set up another
appointment to see the car.
Unless you are extremely wealthy, never offer full asking price. The price listed will usually have some leeway built in. Ask if there is any
"wiggle" room in the deal. Offer below what you have allotted to buy the car. The seller will most likely counter your offer and go below their
asking price. If they don't, they don't want you to buy their car. Continue in this fashion until both parties are satisfied. When the deal is
struck, congratulate yourself for your new found car buying knowledge.
Buying a car is one of the more fun things in life to do. With proper negotiating skills, it doesn't have to be filled with fear. After becoming
an expert, all your friends and family will want you on their side.
