Sierra Vista Arizona is a great location when it comes to buying used cars. This area has quite a few people coming and going and at any given time someone may be leaving the area or arriving here. In many instances, the people of Sierra Vista choose to list their personal items on Craigslist instead of moving with them. This often makes the process of moving much easier as there is not as many items that must be moved. Among these items are motorcycles, cars and pickups. Many people have an extra car laying around that need to be moved out of the way for whatever reason. Listing the cars on craigslist Sierra Vista AZ is a great way to get cold hard cash for such items.
Cars for cheap on Craigslist
Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of buying a car on Craigslist is the fact that you can get one for extremely cheap. Often times, these cars will sell for a fraction of the price that one would expect to pay when shopping using more traditional methods such as a car dealer or your local car lot on the corner. The reason behind this is because a private party seller can offer a lower price due to the fact that there is less overhead expenses involved when selling a car this way. Keep in mind that with a dealer you are looking at paying the cost associated with acquiring the car in addition to the markup and associated with operating costs plus the profit. This will often double the cost that one would expect to pay in comparison to buying from an individual. Here are a few tips that you may want to consider in order to get a cheap car.
- Never offer to pay the seller full price for their car. Most people are willing to sell their car for hundreds less than they have it posted for. In fact, some even post their cars for a higher price while expecting the seller to negotiate the price. If you do in fact pay full price you are only leaving money on the table that could have otherwise been used to put a tank of gas in the car or pay for needed repairs.
- Keep in mind that all of the small things can really add up. While it is a great idea to get a car that has a few things wrong with it because you can get a much lower price. Don’t buy one that needs a lot of work. A few dollars here and a few dollars there can really add up. Choose your car wisely and never choose without having someone give it a good look over.
- Look for motivated sellers. The best way to get a really great deal is to locate someone who absolutely must sell their car. Use the keyword search feature in order to do this by typing in words such as must sell or needs to go. I have found many deals this way and it is easy to do.
