How to Sell Your Car Yourself  11 Easy Tips 

Over the years I’ve bought and sold tons of things on Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace and other places, including my Jeep Grand Cherokee (which was a great experience). Here are my tips for selling a car (or anything) yourself..

Prep Your Car so a Buyer Falls in Love

Make sure your car is in its best, most presentable shape. Wash, polish, and detail it to make it smell good. Consider replacing floor mats, taking out child car seats and trunk organizing bins.

Take your photos as soon as you’ve detailed your car, take them in an attractive place that is NOT your driveway or in front of your house, and take complete photos so the buyer can truly see what the car looks like.

TAKE GREAT PHOTOS

Research the private party price for your car on sites like Kelley Blue Book or Cars.com, or use NADA’s used car value site. And be honest about your car’s condition, the value of its features and the current marketplace.

HOW MUCH IS YOUR CAR REALLY WORTH?

Include what would you want to know when looking at used car ads: price, mileage, year, condition, features, damage, any significant repair work, that it has a clean title.

WRITE A KICKASS AD

Keeping all your information in one place will help you to repost your ad if your car doesn’t sell in the first week. Listings expire or move down the list, so if your car doesn’t sell right away you’ll want to repost it.

CREATE A FOLDER FOR YOUR POSTING INFORMATION

This part is pretty easy, but keep a couple of things out of your ad: Your address, your phone number and any personal information.
