Real Results! Real People! Real Opportunity

If you are thinking about buying a new car, now could be a good time to pursue it. There are a few incentives available but you have to be prepared. The dealerships are in business to make money and we should not deny them of this, but at the same time we should be smart enough to make the best deal possible and be able and be happy with the outcome for the next few years.

The most important thing to remember is to not show excitement about the purchase, the sales people have a tendency to feed on this excitement and the deal could end up being something less than exciting when you walk away. Here are a few tips that will make this experience turn out better for everyone.

Don’t talk about monthly payments, this will give the sales people a goal to shoot for, only talk about the final cost of the vehicle. A lot of times sales people will continue to add features that you might not have wanted just to get to the monthly amount you have set for yourself. By not talking about the monthly payment you may get everything you wanted and at a lower price than you had originally decided on.

Don’t talk about your credit score. This is a clever way for the agency to make more hidden profit. Agencies make money from financing, the higher the interest rate the more they make. They will find out what your score is when the time is right.

Try to arrange financing from an outside source prior to going shopping. This will give you an idea of current interest rates that you qualify for and the size of payment you can expect. Let the agency present you with an offer for financing and you will know if it is comparable. Once again the agencies make money financing so be ready for a sales pitch on their financing being superior to others.

Don’t let them rush you. There are more places to go and deals to find. Sometimes they will say it is the last one of this model available or color ect. but you don’t have to fall for it. Let them know in a polite way that you are going to take your time in the decision and if need be you will look other places to find your vehicle.

Visit again tomorrow and get some more good tips that could help you get the vehicle of your dreams and fell good about the deal.

Good luck on your search,

Truman

I am compelled to tell this story.  Although it may put me on the couch for the next five years, minimum.

The background

Residence:  Sunny Florida

Population:  Seniors and Palmetto Bugs (American Cockroach)

Wife:  Slightly bug phobic

The stage:

Predawn hour.  My wife, in her pajamas, is feet up in the recliner.  Our finicky girl cat, Kwan Yin, is on her lap, upside down.  Our 15-pound cat, Odin, is resting comfortably 5 feet up on top of the cat condo, snoring lightly.  Her fresh brewed cup of coffee is on the table to the right.  She has just breezed through her morning routine of the Sudoku puzzle and Scramlet puzzle in the local newspaper.

I am sure you can see where this is heading.

The action:

She lays down the newspaper with a contented sign.  All is well with the world.  Both puzzles knocked out, leaving some time before she heads for the home office.  She reaches to the floor on the left of the recliner, to pick up a zipper binder containing a SEO manual she has been reading.  She was very careful not to twitch a muscle, as the girl cat gets upset very easily.

She gently lays the binder across the arm of the recliner and the table and opens it up.  Just as she is about to remove a page, she lets out a blood curdling scream.  I am sure the neighbors on the next street over heard it.  A very large Palmetto bug comes out of the binder and scurries (that’s right, they are very fast), behind her on the chair.

Next, in less than 5 seconds:

She knocks the binder, upsetting the table it was resting on, sending the pens flying.  She scrambles to get out of the chair with the feet still up.  (this is a 53 year old, slightly over-weight, under exercised woman), still screaming.

The upside down cat leaps over the table, knocking the coffee cup over, streaks towards the glass patio door and runs full tilt into it.  She careens off the door, bounces off the gray cat and flies into another room..

The snoring, gray cat on the condo comes off in a single leap, knocking over another table, sending the contents flying around the room, runs into the girl cat, bounces into the kitchen.

I, of course, am still sitting in my recliner with my feet up, saying in my most manly voice, “What, What?’  Refusing to admit that for two seconds, I was hanging from the ceiling by my fingertips.  My wife is still walking around the room going, “heebie jeebies, heebie jeebies.”

The cats are still refusing to talk to her.  And I still smile when I see the cat smudge on the door.

Where is that darn video recorder when you need it.
