Buying a car requires a number of decisions and planning to make sure you’re getting what you need, what you want, and at a price you can afford. So, once you’ve decided on the car and options that you want, you’re likely ready to just go to the dealership and buy. However, there are certain times of year, and even during the week, that are better for bringing your car home. Since it is recommended that you don’t wait until you’re in active need for a new car, waiting for those times of year are really going to help save you money without compromise.
The savings start to grow in October, and by November, it’s peak time to head to the lots and start looking for the best deals you can find. Here are a few reasons that this time of the year are really the time to shop.
As you get towards the end of the year, or even the end of the month, salespeople are going to be more aware of how many cars they’ve sold that year. This allows them to know how close they are to whatever their goals were for the year and they’re going to need to figure out how to meet or exceed those numbers. This is going to give them an added motivator to make a better deal with you.
Model Year Clear-Out
Since the end of the year is when you’re heading into a new model year as well, it is a good thing to remember that they’re going to need to make room on the lot for next year’s model. So, if you’ve done your research and know the car you want and it’s at the end of its model year, head to the lots and find the best deal for you!
Thanksgiving and Black Friday
We know that retailers are always putting out some of the best deals out for Black Friday. Car dealers are now figuring out that this can be a benefit for them as well. Thankfully you probably don’t have to camp out hours ahead of time to get to the dealership and meet with a salesperson, though it will still likely be busy.
Mid-size and Compact
It turns out that certain times of year are really great for buying certain types of cars! Part of what helps car sale people decide if and when they’re going to be able to make a deal depends a lot on supply and demand. Often SUVs and crossovers are sought after during November, however this means that the prices are likely going to remain closer to MSRP because though supply is high, so is demand. Fewer mid-size and compact cars are being looked for, so your chances of getting a deal on them increases.
