How to Sell a Car Via Free Classifieds Ads
There are a few obvious benefits of opting for free classifieds ads online. Firstly, you do not spend a single penny on free online advertising. Compare this to traditional forms of classifieds in newspapers and magazines. Both newspapers and magazines charge a lot of money for classifieds. None of them offer free ads option. The second benefit is that you can reach out to a larger audience. A car is such a product that not many people purchase and thus the number of potential buyers are very low. Therefore, unless your advertisement is exposed to many people, you will not receive any responses.
If you are convinced about selling your old car online, here are some tips that will help you sell your car faster:
Keep factual data ready: Any potential buyer would like to know factual data about your car. Therefore, it is best to either mention it in the classified or keep it ready at hand. This information includes age of the car, history of accidents, number of miles, condition etc.
Find out the value of the car: Do not try to quote a prize you think you deserve. Instead, do some market research to arrive at a price point that will appeal to you and the buyer as well. You can ask a local mechanic for a quote on the car and compare the rate with other existing classifieds online.
Title of the car: You can not sell the car unless you own the title on the car. So, if you do not have it, setting up a classified would be fruitless. Clean up the car: All potential buyers will visit you to check out the car. So make sure your car is cleaned from outside and inside. The buyer should get a good vibe from your car and a clean car does make a good impression.
Smart talk with the buyer: When you meet the buyer, try to ask questions like how long they have been looking for cars now, what is their budget, what is the best offer they have in mind? Such questions create a sense of urgency in the mind of the buyer. Thus, the buyer will not waste your time and be frank with you about his or her buying intentions.
These quick tips will ensure that you are fully prepared when you post your first classified ad online to sell your old car.
