If you’re looking for a new car, you may be trying to figure out what the best new car deals are in your area and how to take advantage of them. Because while buying a car is an investment, you try to get the best possible deal by using a few key tips.
In this video, an ex-car salesman lays out what you should tell a car salesperson to help you get the best possible deal on your new car. As someone who has experience selling cars, he knows what will catch a car salesperson’s attention to benefit you as a car buyer.
Tell Them You’re Shopping Around
Since the person selling you a car gets a commission when you buy from them, they want you to choose their deal when you’re buying. Even if you haven’t been to any other dealerships, telling the car salesperson that you’re looking around will entice them to give you a better deal.
If you’re trading in an old car when you get a new one, tell the salesperson the amount that you want to get for the car. It’s better to shoot a little higher than what you actually want so that during negotiations you’ll still get the amount that you want for your old vehicle.
