A couple of years ago, that question would have been easy to answer. That was when I owned a truck.
But that’s not the case anymore.
Rather than hoping that the dealership had marked my car correctly and it was in the exact same place when I got there, I knew I needed to search for a used car online. Unfortunately, there are no exact replacements. This is a fact that the dealership is trying to make good on.
It’s a fact that I often forget.
But now, the salesperson at the dealership is probably doing everything he can to make sure that when my old car is sold, it’s sold to the right person. And to do that, the salesperson needs to explain to the potential buyer that it’s been sold — to a car buyer and that they’ll get exactly the car they want. Sure, the sale could be a bad thing. It could be wrong. It could be a horrible car for my family.
But I’m betting that the seller has done a pretty good job. I’m betting that the car is exactly what the dealership told the owner it would be when it was sold to him. I’m betting that it’s a car that I’m hoping I’ll be able to get, for no more money than the seller was expecting to get for it.
1. A few posts ago, I suggested you take a look at these cars for sale in your area.
2. To do that, I found a nice used Mercedes sedan for sale in the San Francisco area for $21,000.
3. It’s a well-kept German luxury car. It has a dual-clutch automatic, a decent 6-cylinder engine, and it was recently serviced.
4. I paid less than half that for my truck.
5. That price may not seem like much, but that’s exactly the point.
6. Because the price is so low, that’s exactly what I could get it for.
7. I’ve said it before. My goal in this business is to turn cars into money.
8. I’m doing that.
9. My goal is to turn dollars into cars.
10. But I can’t sell cars that are sold at ridiculously low prices when they’re sold at all.
11. So I’ve decided to turn my focus to other options.
12. I’ve spent a good deal of time recently researching new cars. I’ve spent a lot of time looking at cars that are on sale.
13. This is the way I’m approaching the car business right now.
14. It may not be the most productive way.
15. That’s not my goal, anyway.
And the reason I’m reaching out to you is to let you know that you can do the same thing if you want to. If you can look for a new car, in the same way, I’m approaching cars, and you can get into the business of selling that new car when it’s bought, you will see your profits grow.
Think of it this way.
When I went to buy my truck, it was nearly sold out of stock.
That’s when I discovered that a friend’s uncle wanted to sell his Mercedes convertible.
So, I jumped at the chance, and I bought that car.
After I bought it, he wanted to sell it.
I bought it back, too.
And after I bought it, he sold it.
It was sold for just over the cost of the truck.
I got more money for it because I could sell it once, instead of just selling it once and losing all the money I’d invested in it.
That’s the same deal that I’m offering right now.
I’m offering to sell a car that I bought for nearly $20,000. I can sell it to a person, and they can then resell it for more money. I can do that, because I’m able to get rid of it, at a price below the price the seller was planning to sell it at. If I can sell it at that price, I get $20,000 to split between me and the seller, who was expecting to get that much. And it’s not because I’m trying to steal from the seller. I’m not trying to make a profit by gouging the seller.
That’s not what I’m doing.
And the reason I’m doing it is that it’s the best way to turn a profit. The seller got a good deal, in the end, because he sold it to a buyer who got a good deal, in the end, because he was able to sell it at the price the seller was expecting to get. That’s how I’m approaching the car business, too.
Here’s the deal.
I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to sell my current car. I’ve sold it once, but it may not be a good idea for me to sell it again. Maybe the price is too low. Maybe the value is too low. So if I have to sell my car, I’m not going to sell it to you, right now. Instead, I’m going to sell it to someone who is looking for a car like this, and they’re going to buy it for the price I paid for it.
If you buy it at the price I paid for it, you can do the same thing.
There are some cars out there, that are almost sold out because they are selling for prices that are too low. There are people who are selling cars at ridiculously low prices because they’re trying to sell the cars for a price that doesn’t take into account the value of those cars. The only thing I can do, to fix that problem, is to buy the cars that those people are selling, at prices that take into account the value of those cars.
That’s how I’m approaching cars.
And that’s the way I’m approaching cars, because the cars that those sellers are selling, just aren’t worth selling at prices that don’t take into account the value of cars like this.
That’s the way I’m approaching cars.
I’m going to sell my car to someone else, who’s going to be able to make money selling cars like this. It’s a process that I’m sure you can do, too, if you want to. There are cars you can sell, for an almost perfect price. Cars for which you have already made a profit on the sale.
Cars for which you’re making money, right now.
If you buy those cars from a seller, at the price you paid for them, you’ll make money, right now. If you sell that car to a new owner, at the price you want to sell it to the new owner, you’ll make money, right now.
That’s how I’m approaching cars, too.
I’m trying to buy the cars at the prices that the seller is expecting to sell them at, and then resell it to a new buyer, who’s going to make a profit. And that’s how I’m trying to approach other things, too. I’m trying to buy the cars that I think are worth buying and selling them, for a profit. I’m trying to sell the cars I don’t like, for a profit. I’m trying to buy the cars I like, and sell them, for a profit.
And there are other things, like cars, that I’m trying to buy at prices that take into account the value of the cars, as a whole, instead of treating the parts of the car separately.
There are cars for sale, in my garage, right now. Cars that I’ve owned for over a year, or close to that long, and I’ve already made money selling them for prices that take into account the value of those cars, as a whole.
Car sales are something I’m trying to do, right now.
Buy the cars that I’ve always been willing to buy, for prices that I believe are reasonable, even if that means I have to wait for the prices to rise. Buy the cars that I’m willing to sell, at prices that I believe are reasonable, even if I have to wait for those prices to rise. Buy the cars that I’m willing to buy, at prices that I believe are reasonable, even if I have to wait for the prices to rise. This may not seem like a big deal, but this strategy of buying and selling cars, for the prices that I believe are reasonable, for the reasons that I have, really adds up.
It adds up in a big way.
So I’m hoping you’ll join me in taking that approach, right now. I’m hoping you’ll join me in trying to buy cars that are worth buying, right now, and selling them, for prices that I believe are reasonable.
