1. Do Your Work First
While it is assumed that the asked price is usually a bit higher than what the buyer pays in the end. Do a decent research so as to have an idea about what number you should quote to the potential buyer when asked about the price of the used car. Go through several used car selling websites so as to facilitate yourself in putting a decent price for the car with your specifications. Pitching a price that is way higher than what one would usually expect for a used car with the given specification, would do you no good apart from making you look like a complete mouth-breathing idiot.
2. Make Use of Resources from Your Disposal
This would include you putting in some effort, into your quest for viable buyers, in the form of advertising and posting photos and related information in various digital forums. Many of such services are available for free or a few fees. This not only gives your car more visibility but if wielded properly, you can sell your car pretty quickly too. Do not ignore the power of telling relatives, colleagues, etc. about your car being put up for sale. It might just happen that you happen to stumble onto a buyer whom you already know in person.
3. Make Deal Go Sweet and Worthy
One of the reasons why you should prefer selling a car on your own rather that depending on brokers, middle men or dealership, is because nobody on your behalf would make an effort to sell your car the way you would try to make the maximum profit from selling it. Before putting car up for sale, make sure that apart from the bare essentials you have thrown in some additional accessories like new seat covers, carpets, etc. It not only increases the value of the car manifold but also creates a good impression of the car having been cared for, on the buyer. Apart from getting your car a car wash, check for any new replacements or repairs you might have to undertake before flaunting it to a prospective buyer. Nobody likes a car with dents and dings.
4. Do Your Paperwork Properly
At the end do not forget about paperwork.This is the most crucial part of transferring ownership of you car to new buyer. Must check all the papers before signing them and transferring them to new owner.
I hope this will help you to make the deal go according to as you have thought of and sure it will lead to a profit day for you.
