If you're looking to get a new car, how do you make money on the old one?

Do you have a plan for the "old" one? Do you want to sell or trade it in?

According to, the best way to double your cash is to sell the vehicle yourself.

Before you go, make sure to follow these three simple steps:

  • Before you can get a good deal, you have to know what's good. Get the right info by checking Kelly Blue Book to get the market price and then go to sites like CarMax to see what they would offer.
  • Make the vehicle look like new with a nice shine.
  • Be ready to negotiate, but always have a price in your head that you will not go below.
