Are you planning to sell your car? If so, you might be wondering what’s the best time to sell. Timing is everything when it comes to selling your car. It can determine how quickly you sell your car and fetch a good price for it. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the best time to sell your car and what factors to consider.
Let’s dive right into it, shall we?
The Kenyan car market, especially the used car market, shows distinct seasonal patterns. Certain periods of the year are more favorable to sellers. The end of the year, especially December, is a prime time to sell your car.
There are many reasons to sell your car in December, but the main ones are:
People spend Njaanuary recovering from festive season extravagance (in addition to school fees and other basic expenses). It’s therefore a difficult time to get a good deal on your car. But things start picking up around March when kids are settled in school and people are getting back on their feet financially.
Events and holidays such as Valentine's Day and Easter holidays also see an increase in demand as people buy cars for their loved ones.
Beyond seasonal trends, there are also specific days and times of the month when it’s easier to sell your car and get a good price for it. Weekends and holidays, when people have free time to shop around for a car, increase the likelihood of a quick sale.
If you’re selling a daily commute car that would be a hit among the working class, it’s easier to sell towards the end of the month when they receive their salaries.
