Have you ever seen that car on the side of the street with the for sale by owner? Have you ever wondered if that’s something you should stop and take a look at? Here are a few tips you should take into consideration when buying from owners.
The first thing you should do is make sure and get the car inspected by a certified mechanic, especially from a garage you trust. It is better to put forward a few dollars to find out how much work you could be getting. Another thing you should do is to make sure and get everything, including the purchase, in a contract. It is important that evidence of a transaction has happened in case something was missed. You do not want that to come back and haunt you later.
In the end, it may be better to pick up a used car at a dealership that knows the ins and outs of car maintenance and has a professional staff.
