8 reasons why selling your car privately is risky

Thinking about selling your car on your own? Consider this...

Waiting is part of the game. The longer it takes to sell, the longer you’ll be making payments on your loan, taxes & insurance.

Professional scammers are out there. And they’re sophisticated when it comes to separating sellers from their cars.

Are you good with legal matters? Have you adequately protected yourself against fraud & liability claims, even after the car is sold?

If you want top dollar, you’ll have to fix any issues with the car. Now you’re spending cash long before you’ll ever make any cash.

What about test drives? You shouldn’t let a stranger drive your car alone. But it’s also risky to tag along as a passenger.

What’s your comfort level with haggling? Many used car buyers know how to take advantage of inexperienced sellers.

Do you need the cash in a hurry? If so, this is not the route for you. Count on it taking weeks or months to sell.

Do you expect to get top price for your car? Even if you do everything right, it’s likely you’ll still get less than expected.
