Whether you’re buying, selling, or just plain curious, it can be hard to figure out the proper value of a car. Here are three tools to help you figure out a fair estimate:
Founded in 1917, NADA represents the interest of new car and truck dealers to the public, the media, Congress and vehicle manufacturers. Their site is two sided, with a consumer site providing new and used car, motorcycle, RV, boat, and classic car values, along with pricing tools and information, and a business site containing values and auction data for lenders and dealers (as well as insurance, government and other automotive professionals). Their advanced searches help you get more desirable results, with CarFax and dealership ratings available on most every result.
Since 1926, Kelley Blue Book has been one of the best-known names in the auto industry. With tools for both buyers and sellers, they’ve become a go-to, leading expert in car pricing for both industry professionals and consumers. Their website includes dozens of resources to help you research, price, and shop for cars. Their searches allow you to compare cars, find cars for sale in your area, and make a well-informed decision with data and metrics, including fair purchase price and an estimated “5 year cost to own.”
Though technically a listings site, cargurus.com has become a rising star in the pricing world. Their site is designed as more of a community than a marketplace, allowing users to shop, list, research, or just share information about cars. With the goal of “making the online car shopping experience more transparent,” their pricing is driven solely by data; unlike other car listing sites, their search results are unbiased, based on real-time Instant Market Value in your local area.
