If you are selling your car, you want to get a good return for it, but there are many factors to consider. One is depreciation; every car depreciates over time. Knowing the trade-in value for a car gives you a benchmark as you visit dealerships. You can compare the Edmunds trade-in value to any offers you get.
When an offer is more than the number you received online, it is a good one to accept. You also know when an offer is on the low side. You can consider other factors in play, such as the dealership having to many similar vehicles in its inventory. Most real-world offers won’t match the online trade-in estimate, but they certainly give you a reference.
If you’re buying a used car, provide the dealership with the Edmunds number for the car you want. The dealer retail value is most important, as this is what you’ll pay. You can either determine whether the advertised price is a good deal or, if the asking price is higher than the estimate, ask the dealer to match or beat the Edmunds price.
This trade-in estimator can therefore serve as an effective negotiating tool.
