How not to lose in todays car markets

Being in the business for over 9 years and seeing all the ups and downs of the car market and the buying seasons I have not experienced anything like this before. New car stores are going out of business more than ever before due to the shortage of vehicles and parts supplies. Vehicle shortages are caused by chip shortage, lack of human resources and government shutdowns.

 

What does this mean for you?

 

According to Consumer Reports:

 

Short supply of vehicles in the market topped with high consumer demand, are driving pre-owned market prices up. Current prices are 42% higher than they were in the first quarter of 2020. With the auction prices not decreasing day over day, waiting to make a purchase is going to cost more.
Some indicators and market experts are estimating the chip shortage could continue through to 2024 and it is difficult to pinpoint exactly when it will end according to an article in CNBC.
Consumer searches for pre-owned cars are double what they were a year ago. Cars are moving faster than ever before – consumers are advised to move quickly if they see a car they like.
If you have a vehicle to trade in, it’s the best time to do it now. The value of your vehicle has been going up as the market is going up. But more unique, low supply and more desirable vehicles are going up faster.
The moral of the story? Don’t wait when you see a car that you like, past buying experiences are outdated in the current market. Waiting costs, especially when prices are still on the rise. You don’t want to miss out on a vehicle or have to pay more when you can get the best deal now.

If you have any questions or perhaps additional insights please feel free to reach out. We are all navigating this odd market together.

Called in for some info on a car. Got great service and found out everything I wanted to know. Tom Pelcic is the guy to go to.
Perfect Auto Collection perfected my experience and exceeded my expectations. I would recommend PAC to others and will seek them for my future auto... purchases. Riley, Ron and Travis are professional, courteous and understand what it takes to meet the needs of their customers. They kept in contact with me throughout the entire purchasing process to ensure I received superb service. I live over 600 miles away and we were able to complete everything in a reasonable amount of time considering the vehicle I purchased was being shipped to me. I was able to use FaceTime to get a real-time real view of the vehicle and virtual test drive. The Car Fax report and listed vehicle I purchased was accurate. Having a clear understanding of the car buy process, having your finances and paper work in order will lessen any hiccups or negative experiences. Patience and constantly communicating effectively will aid in closing your deal. Thank you PAC and Car Gurus for making the connection.read more
