I have a 99 porsche to sell and I know nothing about it. Where is the best place to sell it to get the most money? Is there a special auto trader just for sports cars? I am in Southern California and any advice would be helpful because I really need money!
Listing your car for sale on websites like
AutoTrader.com give you a wider audience of shoppers and allow you to price your
car more competitively. When you log on to the site, pretend you are searching
for a 1999 Porsche in your zip code, and then
look at how many are available, and what they are priced at in your
particular area to determine your price
example, I searched for a '99 Porsche, ALL
models and found within 25 miles of a Los Angeles
zip code there are 53 listed and within 25 miles within a San Francisco zip code there are 13. In both areas
the average asking price is around $26,000. Because there are fewer listed in SF, if your car is in
good/excellent condition, was taken for a maintenance check yearly, or has other
unique qualities to point out, you can try an asking price higher than the
average. When posting an ad, be sure to identify its condition, as well as any
other differentiating factors that will help more shoppers click on your
car. If you conduct a similar
search identifying your vehicle's model, you can easily find
how many cars like yours are for sale in your
area, and price your car appropriately based on the demand.
