Tempe, Arizona (NAPSI) - Selling your car yourself may be easier-and more financially rewarding-than you realize. Here are some tips:

• Come Clean. Start by throwing away all trash and removing all personal items from the vehicle. Some believe that having the car detailed before you list it is an investment that can pay off at sale time.

• Check it Out. Have a trusted mechanic inspect your car. The mechanic’s analysis and feedback can help you develop a negotiating strategy, particularly if there are parts of the car in need of repair.

• The Right Price. Setting the right price for your car is key. Set it too high and you waste time-too low and you lose money. Fortunately, you can refer to the Kelly Blue Book to determine the car’s value.

Sellers can also purchase the Carfax “Unlimited For Sale By Owner” package. It provides interested buyers with the detailed Carfax history of your vehicle.
