“Dave was integral in the selling of my used truck. He handled the entire negotiation process which deflected a ton of stress from me. Dave is a true professional; honest, direct and realistic when it comes to knowing the vehicle market. I would, without question, hire Dave again to assist in selling or helping me purchase a vehicle.”

Want a Crystal Ball? I See Residual Values…

Even if you aren’t leasing, if you are curious to know what your new vehicle (or a vehicle you are considering buying) will be worth in 3 or 4 years, ask (before you buy) what the lease end or residual value of that vehicle is.  It is determined as a percentage of the window sticker (MSRP).  The actual window sticker from the manufacturer, not any add on or look alike that the dealer has put on that vehicle.  Values for an average car are typically 50% of that price after 3 years and 35-40,000 miles.  A vehicle that holds it value very well, like a Honda or Toyota will be more like 58-60%+.  It has been this way for many years.  If you are concerned about how a vehicle holds it value be sure and ask.  This number is usually dead on and also be aware that those dealer add on items will not increase the value of the vehicle at all!
