Today’s automotive trader is wise to be on the lookout for the “professional’s car” when acquiring.
No, not a lawyers or doctors vehicle, I’m talking about the auto dealer’s version of the professional car
The units that have been owned by separate dealers for an extended period of time, continuously offered for retail sale, yet unable to find an retail customer.
The vehicle’s Days on Market (DOM) is creeping up, up, up … buy one of these and even though new to you, it could actually be over 200 DOM on the retail market.
Even if you bought it correctly, that doesn’t mean it’ll sell.
It could very well be retail stale.
Do your bank account a favour, and see if that unit you are about to buy hasn’t already been on the market beyond its best before date.
It’s an awful lot easier to sell fresh over frozen… You’ll turn more and do less head scratching as to why a piece hasn’t sold.
Accu-Trade tracks the retail listing history of almost every vehicle in the market. See who had it first, for how long and what they were trying to sell it for.
Don’t let someone else’s stale unit become your stale unit.
