How to Sell your Car to a Private Buyer

Some people decide to sell their cars to a private buyer because they think they can get more bang for their buck. While that might sound appealing, there are many steps involved, and you’ll likely have to do most of the legwork yourself.

How to Get Started

Presentation is key because your potential buyer wants to know exactly what they’re getting. Take a picture of the car’s front, back and sides. Don’t forget to get a few of the interior, too. Also, make sure you have good lighting available. Darker photos are an instant turn-off for your potential buyer.

Things to Include in your Car’s Description

Drivers want to know about your car’s mileage, what you’re charging, how long you've owned it, why you're selling it, what you like about it, and how often you’ve kept up with its maintenance.
