How to Sell a Car: FAQs

Q: Can You Trade in a Financed Vehicle?

A: Indeed, you can exchange a financed vehicle. That is one of the significant advantages of offering your vehicle to your nearby Columbia seller. Sellers will merge your loan amount that you actually owe on the vehicle and work that into the new loan agreement.

Q: When Can You Trade in Your Financed Vehicle?

A: Though you can actually exchange your financed vehicle whenever, we suggest delaying until you have positive equity on your present loan.

Q: What Does “Being Upside-Down” on a Loan Mean?

A: This simply means that you have negative value on your present loan. For instance, if you owe $40,000 and it’s valued at $35,000, you would have a negative value and be thought of as “upside-down” in your credit.

Q: Can You Trade in Your Vehicle for a Cheaper One?

A: You can absolutely exchange your vehicle for a less expensive one. If you owe $30,000 on your car loan and the vehicle is valued at $40,000, the car dealership would then buy your vehicle and put the $10,000 towards another vehicle. If you’ve already paid off your loan and own your car, you can trade it in at any time, as negative equity wouldn’t apply in this situation.
