How to Find the Value of a Car

Selling a car online can be an involved process. The first thing you want to do is determine the value of a car before you start negotiations to sell. If your car is older, you’ll need to research to find out its fair market value. Many online appraisal sites have a free tool you can use to get an instant appraisal.

How To Find The Value Of A Car

Kelley Blue Book, launched in 1926, is a leading estimator for finding the value of a car and a go-to source for used car prices. Kelley Blue Book’s algorithm looks at your vehicle’s make, model, mileage, and condition and compares it to other recent sales of the same model in your area.

Edmunds’ car appraisal tool is similar to KBB’s, but it uses more detailed criteria to determine a car’s value, including whether the vehicle has suffered damage or been in an accident. Edmunds publishes reviews of cars and long-term road test results to assist in your next car purchase decision. The Edmunds website also offers information about new car prices and used car inventory in your area.

The National Automobile Dealer’s Association (NADA) also provides vehicle valuations, although its guidelines are slightly different from those used by KBB and Edmunds, and its appraisals tend to be slightly higher. According to NADA, a car’s wholesale price, current market price, and demand in your area are important factors.

No matter which car value estimator you use, you’ll need to enter your vehicle’s year, make, model, and mileage to get the most accurate estimate. Depending on the estimator, you’ll also be able to add details about your vehicle’s exterior condition, such as dents, paint damage, rust, and scratches.
