Used Car Selling Strategies in 2022 that Work like a Charm

Used Car Selling Strategies in 2022 that Work like a Charm

Everyone is trying to capitalize on the used car buying frenzy taking Canada by storm. We will show you the best used car selling strategies in 2022 that'll have your car sold in no time!


Working out what your used car is worth


The first of our used car selling strategies in 2022 will probably take the most time because the prices of used cars are constantly changing. In addition, the lack of microchips means there are not enough new cars being manufactured.


Since more people want to buy a new car than what is available, buyers are forced to buy used cars. Unfortunately, there is a minimal supply of used cars available in the market. In order to sell a used car, you will need to find a replacement vehicle.


This is a “chicken and egg” scenario, so before you sell your car, make sure you don’t need a replacement vehicle, or you could end up waiting for a long time.


That was a tangent! Let’s get back to focusing on how to figure out what your car is worth. Start by looking for comparables. There are many websites that you can use for reference. Create a list of 10-20 cars just like yours and then pick a price that is the “middle of the road”.


If the asking price is high, it could take weeks before you get any serious offers. If you had a very low price, prospective buyers may think there is something wrong with the vehicle and skip it altogether.


Using the middle-of-the-road approach, you may get multiple offers, leading to a bidding war.


Creating a great advertisement


When drafting a used car advertisement, remember that with content “less is more.” Buyers won’t spend time reading over every ad. They are going to focus on specific keywords like the asking price, mileage, and location of the car. To make your advertisement pop, try using bullet points which makes it easier for the buyer to read.


Something that cannot be stressed enough is the need for high-quality pictures. You can’t just take a picture of the car. It needs to be the exterior and interior of the car. The camera on the phone you are using should be sufficient.


Communicating with buyers


When communicating with prospective buyers, keep it professional. Never sell the car to someone without first meeting them in person.


Encourage the buyer to come and take the car for a test drive. By dealing with the buyer in person, you are less likely to be ripped off.


The fastest way to sell your used car


There is a speedy way to sell your used car. You will need to bring your vehicle down to a dealership and do an appraisal.


This will let you know what the car is worth, and if you accept the offer, you will get paid right away. This is the fastest way to sell a used car for quick money, be sure to bring your vehicle registration to sign over to the dealership.
