How to Find the Best Used Car at the Best Price


When most people buy a used car, they use a dealership or other professional seller. These sellers are in the business of providing good cars in the most convenient way possible for buyers. All a buyer has to do is show up at a lot or showroom and peruse what is available. Though there may be some negotiation, there is rarely a lot of wiggle room on the price, and deals are few and far between. As with all major purchases, buyers can prioritize

1) Affordability,

2) Time (until the right unit is found), and

3) Quality.

The problem is, you can really only pick two of those three buying criteria. If you find a high quality vehicle quickly by picking it out of a dealer’s lot, you’ll pay a lot more for it than if you found it through a poorly marketed private sale. If you take all the time to find a sterling example of a very rare car, you won’t be able to find it affordably. For the purposes of this article, we’re going to focus on Quality and Price, assuming that you are willing to take the time it takes to find the perfect car for your needs and desires.

Let’s say you are bent on finding a used Mercedes Benz for sale. Mercedes Benz are amazing vehicles. They are well engineered and tend to hold their value for a long time. Benz drivers often have a preference for these vehicles over all others. If you feel this way, you likely are looking for a specific model. Let’s assume, for our purposes, that you are looking for a vintage model, more than twenty years old. It’s a vehicle that you understand something about, having owned one years prior. You know how to fix them, you know the problems they commonly have, and you love driving them more than any other vehicle.

An investment like this is expensive to make, so you want to find the best price possible. The lucky thing for you is that you don’t need to buy this car anytime soon. You give yourself six months to look far and wide for the perfect vehicle. Here are a way to find success in your Price and Quality prioritization goals.

Look at Uncommon Sources. If you limit yourself to dealers who specialize in these vehicles, you will always pay top dollar. Get off the beaten path. Look to Craigslist, forums built around the car of your dreams, Facebook pages, and local listings through regional media. Join mailing lists. Ask around among other Benz enthusiasts in your area. If you see someone driving an old Benz, ask them if they have any leads.

Eventually, you will find someone who is selling exactly what you are looking for. This will take some time, but you may even find several different options. At this point, all you have to do is select the most affordable option. Take the time to find exactly what you’re looking for, and your search will be well worth the effort.

We have a discount page for Ebay. Ebay is an excellent resource to get a great deal on a used car, so I feel this would be somewhat relevant.
