When you’re tired of looking at and driving the same old car every day, you might decide it’s time to sell it and get something new, or at least new to you. While there is a way to sell your car and drive home with the cash right away, many of us will want to try and increase our vehicle’s value by fixing up a few things. Here are 3 ways to increase your car’s resale value before you put it up for sale.
3 Things You Should Fix Before Selling Your Car
Lights and Scratches: Even if your lights work great, make sure to take time to clean them so they are clear and bright. It’s also a good idea to see a professional if you have a lot of eye-catching scratches and dents. Whether that means shelling out the money to buy a new panel for a large dent, or have someone clean up several scratches, the selling price will increase, and often time more than make up for what you spent.
Windshield Issues: A cracked or chipped windshield can take quite a bit of money off your vehicle’s resale value, so it’s a good idea to get it fixed. While replacing a windshield might sound like a pain, it’s a great way to improve your car’s resale value and give more curb appeal for potential buyers.
Brakes and Tires: Replacing brakes is really only a good idea if you are trying to sell a used luxury car, but if they are truly worn, it’s good to replace them regardless. When it comes to tires, you don’t want to sell a vehicle with totally worn down ones, but you don’t want to pay to put new ones on. The best thing you can do is to put 4 matching used tires on the car (much more affordable!) and not risk a greatly decreased selling price.
