Your car’s value depends on a number of factors.
Older vehicles generally lose their value over time due to depreciation and outdated amenities. However, in today’s busy used car marketplace, a desirable make and model can hold more value over a longer period of time. Newer models with more updated amenities and technologies can help maximize your car’s value.
Your car’s worth is also impacted by mileage.The more miles you drive, the less it will be worth because of its usage and general wear and tear. Low mileage can also help maximize your car’s value.
Some makes and models retain their value longer due to their desirability, obscurity/availability, or brand reputation. For example, luxury cars are likely to retain value longer due to their prestigious name.
The condition that your vehicle is in will greatly affect its value. Keeping up with maintenance, interior cleanliness, and exterior appearance (i.e., minimal scratches and dents) will help increase your car’s value.
