Car Buying Tips Everyone Can Use

How Much Car Can You Afford?

In order to find out how much you can afford, lenders will want to know your gross monthly income and your existing monthly debts. To calculate your maximum monthly debt, simply add up your monthly expenses including:

- Mortgage or rent payments

- Loan payments

- Credit card payments

- Childcare costs

- Alimony or child support payments

- Any other regular expenses


Find the Right Car

There are a lot of cars on the market today, which can make it difficult to narrow down your choices. For example, if you have a family or travel frequently with friends, you’re going to want a bigger car vs looking for a car just to commute back and forth to work. Another thing to consider is how much you’re willing to spend on gas each month.


Before you start shopping for a car, sit down and think about what you need:

- How many people will regularly ride with you?

- Do you drive long distances often or stick mainly to city streets?

- What style of car do you prefer? Are certain colors or brands more important to you than others?

- What kind of special features are must-haves for your ideal vehicle (e.g. heated seats, built in navigation)?

Once you have a good idea of the basics, it’s time to make a list of pros and cons for each candidate that fits your budget so that you can decide on the best option for YOU.

Should You Buy A Car From A Private Party

Buying From A Private Party Vs. A Dealership

There are a lot of things to consider when purchasing a car, and buying from a private party is no exception. Here are four things you should keep in mind if you're thinking about buying a car from a private seller.

Your financing options may be limited.

If you're looking to finance your purchase you will have to arrange for your own financing. If you have less than perfect credit, this could limited you financing options. Dealerships are in the business of selling cars and have a network of sources to work with.

Warranties may not be available.

When you buy a car from a dealer, it could possibly come with a warranty or at least once could be offered to purchases. However, when you buy from a private seller and something goes wrong with the car, you probably don't have any recourse.

The car may not be inspected.

Most dealerships have some sort of inspection process for the cars they sell, but private sellers aren't required to have their vehicles inspected. This means that you could be buying a car with serious mechanical issues and not even know it.

The purchase could be more complicated than you think.

There are a lot of paperwork that goes into buying a car. If you're not familiar with the process, it can be very confusing and even overwhelming.

If you're considering buying a car from a private seller, make sure you do your research and understand all of the potential risks involved. It's important to remember that you could be buying a lemon and end up being stuck with a huge bill for repairs.

You have to find a buyer for your old car

If you already have a car and need the money to buy a new one, you will need to figure out  what to do with your old car.

There could be title issues

When buying from a private party, you will want to run a title check before finalizing the purchase. You will also have to handle all the paper work and registration yourself.
