Guide to Selling a Used Car in 2022

Ontario and Canada's used and new car industry has experienced a substantial recovery in 2021 and selling a used car in 2022 is now a great idea.


If you were waiting for the right time to sell your used car, now may be a great opportunity, especially with carmakers making a big push to ramp up production. Once the new car market has enough vehicles to meet demand, the used car market will go through a massive correction.


With hard work and a little luck, you will be able to sell your used car. We put together some helpful suggestions that will make your selling experience more pleasant.


Selling a Used Car in 2022 is simple but not easy


Most of us are not trained used cars sales professionals, so we are not aware of industry best practices. Fortunately, we have done the research and can provide you with the steps that must be taken when trying to safely sell your used car.


The first and golden rule of selling used cars is to get your advertisement in front of people who want to buy your car, sounds simple enough.


However, one of the challenges is the sheer number of websites that people use to sell things. Some people think social media is the best place to sell cars, while others recommend using sites like AutoTrader and eBay; the short answer is there is no right or wrong answer.


These websites use artificial intelligence when ranking advertisements, so you need to optimize your advertisement to make it stand out.


You may have heard the term search engine optimization (SEO) well, think of writing your used car advertisement in a similar fashion.


Drafting a sale optimized advertisement


You need to write a concise description of your car, including the year, make, and model. When you take photos of the car, include the year, make, and model in the description and tags of the photo.


We understand that this might seem like a hassle, but it will make your advertisement stand out.


The description should be easy to read; prospective buyers are not going to spend a lot of time reviewing every advertisement; they simply do not have the time.


Some elements you should incorporate into your ad are using bullet points and simple language; your prospective buyers will appreciate it.


Working out what your car is worth


A common mistake that first-time used car sellers experience is not properly pricing their vehicle.


There are many websites that can give insight into what your car is worth; however, the best way to find out the fair market value of your car is by driving over to your local car dealership.


They will conduct an appraisal and let you know what your car is worth; they will be able to pay you right away. By going through a dealership, you can avoid the headaches that come with selling a used car on your own.


Now that you know how to safely sell your used car, why not start exploring your options while the used car market is still hot.
