How to sell my Aston Martin today for its KBB value
Aston Martin is a symbol of class, wealth and status. Cars bearing the British carmaker’s marque are—regardless of age, mileage or condition—a thing of beauty. Aston Martins hold their value throughout the years, as well as any car can.
Still, selling an Aston Martin can be difficult. Not many private party buyers have $100,000 just lying around for your used car. And dealers will present low-ball offers so they can make a tidy profit for themselves.
So, when it comes time to sell your Aston Marton—perhaps you are looking to upgrade to a newer model, or would just like to cash out—it can be tough to know where to turn. You can go through the hassle of private party sales, or trade it in, or sell it to I Buy Luxury Cars for its KBB value today. Let’s explore your options.
Sell my Aston Martin privately
Private party sales can be tempting—you stand to make a profit. But only if you know what you’re doing. First, you have to price your car correctly. If you go too high above the MSRP or KBB value, then you won’t attract any buyers, no matter how beautiful the car. If you go too low, you might be shorting yourself. To get the price right, you might need to pay for a professional Aston Martin valuation.
Then, you have to find interested buyers. Not just Aston Martin enthusiasts who will waste your time with test drives and ogling. You need to find buyers who will appreciate the beauty of your vehicle, and who have the financial means to buy it. Preferably, you want someone who can buy it in full and in cash. Otherwise, you’ll have to deal with payoffs, lien agreements and bank loans. And, because banks don’t like to facilitate private party loans, this can be difficult.
This is why many private party Aston Martin sales can drag on for about two or three months. During this time, you’ll have to continue making your car payments, and your car will continue to depreciate. So, even if you do make a profit, you also stand to lose thousands in depreciation—luxury cars tend to depreciate $1,500 a month.
Sell my Aston Martin to a dealership
If you’re upgrading to a new car, you might be thinking about trading it in. Unfortunately, trade-in offers are often lower than the value of your car. And that’s if the dealership wants your car at all.
If, for instance, you’re trading your Aston Martin Vanquish into a Maserati dealership, it’s possible the dealership doesn’t even want your car. They might not be able to put your car on their showroom floor due to franchising agreements. In any case, Maserati dealerships don’t usually want to feature cars from other manufacturers.
So, they’ll present you with a low-ball offer on your Aston Martin hoping for one of two outcomes: (1) you walk away, or (2) the offer is so low they’re guaranteed to turn a tidy profit.
