Get Pre-approved Before You Go To The Dealer
Fall is a great time to consider a new vehicle. Especially this year as rates are expected to rise in the near future. New models are starting to roll into dealers’ inventories. This will lead to attractive discounts and better negotiation power on 2018 models.
There is an advantage to getting pre-approved before you hit the dealership. Pre-approval is a simple process that makes vehicle buying easier and may help you get a better deal.
Here are a few tips:
- Negotiate your price for your new vehicle first.
- If you are doing a trade-in, know the value of your vehicle. You can go online to a pricing guide to look up your vehicle and compare the trade-in price.
- Ask about any additional fees. Some dealers may include excessive fees to recoup the profit they lose while negotiating. Look at the breakdown before signing.
