Recommend bringing a couple of things if you have your service records for your car bring them if you’ve got extra keys for your car bring em if you have the manual and all the original paperwork that came with your vehicle go ahead and bring that to to be a nice person how you treat others is a reflection on how you treated your car while you owned it step number

Three is too oh she ate the price of your vehicle now this is probably the least favorite among sellers however it’s the most important when it comes to getting the price you want for your vehicle so here are some things that i would do going into that be ready to say no oh you don’t have to sell your car to anybody in a popular buying method these days is to

Come in with a super lowball price and try and stress you out on the spot to give up your car if you just say no then you totally call their bluff which is super easy let’s practice no no no no no no no the second thing i would keep in mind is to keep your asking price about ten to fifteen percent higher than what the kelley blue book or the edmunds data suggests

And the reason for this is if you have a goal that’s about here but you’re asking here and you give them this discount a lot of times they’re going to think they’re getting a good deal you’re going to stick to the final goal of your car sale everybody’s going to walk away happy step four is to verify the payment for your car i usually do this before i talk about

A title or a bill of sale or anything like that because i want to know that they can actually purchase the car before i show them that document you can even back up and say hey you can’t drive my car unless you bring the cash with you and that’s going to ensure that one they’re not wasting your time and to it kind of puts some you know value on it so if they do

Crash your car you know that they can pay for it kind of on the spot if your car is more than 10k i would avoid collecting that in a parking lot in fact if your car is worth more than 10k and someone’s going to come meet you i would set the expectation that you want to meet them at their bank when they pull out 10k in cash and you want to be there with the banker

To watch them count it that’s the only way i would do any transaction over ten thousand dollars other than that counting it out in the parking lots fine just make sure you count it at least two times and make sure you go directly to the bank after that because that guy knows that you have that much cash on you so go directly to the bank step 5 you verified your

Payment now it’s time to talk about paperwork and to get that out of the way now this part also seems pretty daunting but if you have the title for your car and the buyers paying in cash it’s actually super easy all you need to do is your title and bring two bills of sale what you’re going to do with your title is you’re going to sign all the sections that require

Signing there’s usually about three sections that require signatures and only two if you’re the legal owner and the registered owner on your car the title is the most important and sensitive document in this situation so i encourage you to do some review go ahead and pull it out look at it the titles have all the instructions on what you need to do to sell your car

But here are the basics first you’re going to sign a release interest as the registered owner now if you bought the car in cash originally and there was never a legal owner or a bank ownership on your car you just need to sign under that one spot if you recently cleared your loan now or a couple years ago the bank should have sent you a title where they release

Interest under the legal owner you’re going to want to make sure that that is signed by your bank and you sign the registered part without those the buyer will not be able to get the car register usually titles include an odometer disclosure section and this part is to record mileage and the date that your car was sold and also to state from the buyer and the seller

That that is the current mileage the car is being purchased under again read the title front to back if you have state specific questions you can ask us in the comments and we will help you the second document you need to worry about is the bill of sale now the bill of sale is equally as important as the title when it comes to selling your car because the buyer

Typically needs both in order to get it registered and their name the bill of sale highlights who bought the car who sold the car how much it costs and the date that it was sold you need two one for you and one for the buyer that way you have a complete record in case anything gets drawn into question last step hand your car over you’ve done everything you need to

You secure the payment you’ve given them the title and you’ve also given them their bill of sale you have your bill of sale copy the last thing is to give over the keys and just wave goodbye to your car it can be sad but you just made some money and now you’re completely out of liability well almost out of liability reporting your sales really important because it

Shows that the car is no longer in your liability if it shows up on the side of the street or in a gut sir they could trace the vin back to you and you could be liable for the vehicle go ahead and report your sale as soon as you can usually you can do it online with your state dmv website or you can mail in the slip well guys i hope all that information makes you
