what is your tactic on getting a good trade in price

2 Answers


I look up trade in before I trade. Both NADA and Kelly Bluebook have listings for Trade In Value. Also tell you Trade In Value is starting point for negotiating deals.

It is hard to know what a trade is actually worth. Those forums and sites are good guides. A lot depends on the market, or area that you are in and what similar models are currently being sold for. Read this article for a more in depth discussion.
