Reasons to car shop over the holidays

There’s a lot going on for everyone during the holiday season, but if you’re in the market for a car, or have been considering it, it might just be time to go shopping for that vehicle.

There are a few reasons for this. One of them is simply that, traditionally, not many people are shopping for cars during the holiday season, meaning sales can be low. Couple this with the fact that dealers are working to meet their end-of-year sales goals, and could be looking to get last year models off their lots with discounts, and you might find yourself to be in an excellent position to negotiate a great deal. According to Gregg Fidan over at RealCarTips.com, January and February are good times to look for the most recent models.

Know before you go – pre-approved car loans

To help your car buying process, think about getting pre-approved auto financing before you go to the dealership. You can arrive the dealership with your loan details and price bracket already established; an empowering feeling that can give you the confidence to shop like a cash buyer.

Complete the secure, online application in just minutes and receive an instant decision in seconds. If approved, the next step is to download and print the loan package, and review the details before taking it along to the dealership.

Dealership options

You may visit a RoadLoans preferred dealership recommended during the application process, or a dealer of your choice. Either way, be sure to shop for a vehicle within the parameters of your auto loan approval, including model year and mileage.

By taking full advantage of dealers keen to meet end-of-year sales goals, the presence of holiday sales and possible discounts on older model vehicles, this holiday season might be a great opportunity for you to find the car deal you’ve been searching for.
