Jonesboro Arkansas is a small town with a large presence on craigslist. This area has a number of for sale by owner cars and trucks for under $1000. If it is a good running car that you are looking for at a bargain price then this is perhaps one of the better ways to go about purchasing one. Every day there are at least two dozen cars that are posted within this price range many of which are true bargains.
When looking for a deal many people like to head straight to the Kelly blue book and purchase their vehicle solely off of what the estimated value is. While this is one strategy of buying a used car it is not always the best. Perhaps the best way to tell how much a car is worth is to take a look at the local competition and see the price and condition of the vehicles that are being sold. It is important to keep in mind that the list price is not always the selling price and this will always be a few percent lower than what the seller is asking.
Small-town deals are usually some of the best deals around and the people of Jonesboro Arkansas know this. For instance, I am currently looking at a 1995 Honda Accord with 231,000 miles. The owner says that this car still runs well and has a powerful V-6 engine with automatic transmission and all of the power features such as power windows and power locks still work. Best of all, the owner is selling this ride for only $1000. Talk about a steal of a deal.
No matter what it is you are looking for whether it be a car, truck or even a minivan, there is a deal out there for you. If you are in the market for a used car first consider how much you are willing and able to spend. All too often car buyers end up spending too much on their used car only to find out that it will soon need an expensive repair or the vehicle consumes a lot of gas. These are some things that you will want to think about when buying a car. Also keep in mind that there are other expenses such as taxes, insurance, maintenance, and fuel that you will have to pay on a regular basis. Take this into consideration when choosing a car.
