Thanks, Nic. Good tip....edmunds. Yes, I clicked private sale, and even avoided to click "excellent" to be conservative. vans here are everywhere.nicomtl said:I think Kelly provides retail, trade-in and private sale prices, so I guess you used the private price...
Did you check other pricing like the prices others are asking for vans like yours in your area? Edmunds is usually a good source for that. It could be that your market is bad for vans...
Thanks, Nic. Yup, those are high mileage, mostly. They are cheaper. Thanks why edmunds gives a premium for the low mileage of about $765 for my van. get what you pay for. Makes sense to me, eh?nicomtl said:
Great points. When I sold my 03 with 110k miles, it was cleaner and in better overall condition than anything I've seen with 1/2 that mileage. A friend of mine has an 04 with 60-some thousand miles, and that thing is an absolute trainwreck. Dents, dirty, probably a lack of proper maintance, etc.......comparatively speaking, I would take my old 03 with almost double the mileage in a heartbeat.nicomtl said:I don't know how mileage impacts price with cars that are 8 years old and have 70+K miles. For example, Consumer Reports gives a price of 8100$ for a car like yours BUT only takes off 125$ for a car with 97K miles (7975$).
The problem is that people are seeing yours and others priced like these, which makes you look higher priced. I think people care more for how it clean and dent-free it is and how clean and free of odd noises it is at that age. You probably need to get someone to take good pictures of your car, to show its state.
