Edmunds: Car value myths, busted owner bargain value value myths

You’ve probably heard over the years a number of tips or myths regarding the value of your car. They might involve how quickly a new vehicle depreciates, for instance, or the biggest factor that influences the value of your used vehicle. But are they true, especially this year because of new pandemic-related market trends? Edmunds’ experts analyzed the most popular car value myths to find the truth behind them.


True. “The first hit on the car is basically immediate,” said Richard Arca, director of vehicle valuations and analytics for Edmunds.

If you traded in your vehicle within a week or so, you’re losing the sales tax and fees you paid on the car — about 11%. Plus, the dealership will offer you less since the car is no longer new and it needs to make a profit on

How blocks of bush land are selling for the price of a car as people turn their backs on city life

Regional blocks of land are being sold for as little as $23,000 as city slickers move away from urban centres to seek a simpler life in the country in 2020.

Prospective buyers are searching for locations based on lifestyle requirements, leading many to look into regional, coastal and country lots to develop their dream home.

Real estate agents outside of Australia’s major cities have noted a dramatic increase in city-based clients looking for a change of scenery, with cheap empty lots not far from urban centres providing potential dream locations for buyers.

Thousands of Australians are looking to move to regional areas away from cities where lots like 6 View Street in Lalbert in northern Victoria are being offered for $23,500 (pictured)

Even elite businesses with juicy dividends suffer share price selloffs from time to time.


Load Error

Sometimes, these selloffs are caused by short-term, solvable problems within the individual companies.

Sometimes, these selloffs are caused because the overall stock market goes down in value.

These selloffs are almost always opportunities to buy these firms at bargain prices and start collecting steady dividend payments.

When you spend money on any big purchase, like a home or a car, you want to pay a good price. You want to get value for your dollar.

When you buy a car, you want to pay a good price. When you buy a house, you want to pay a good price. You don’t want to overpay. You don’t want to embarrass yourself by getting ripped off.

Yet… when people invest, the idea of paying a good price is often cast aside.

© Provided by The South African

There is good news for those who are feeling the financial pinch, but still need to purchase a reliable and affordable vehicle.

And that is that vehicles that have been repossessed for public auction, can currently be secured at discounts of up to 78% — and these discounts may even expand further in the near future.

Quoting industry experts, Business Insider has said this week that while there may be great discounts currently available for bargain hunters at repossession auctions, repossessed vehicles do however present risks — including that a buyer may end up with a dud.  

At the outset, the first way to ensure the best possible deal when purchasing a repossessed vehicle, is to try and select or make a bid for a vehicle which is still under a warranty or which still has

11 Amazon Prime perks you’ll wish you knew sooner

Due in large part to the pandemic, more Americans than ever are “priming it.” That is, jumping on Amazon and using their Prime membership to get free two-day shipping on purchases.

Annual Prime membership costs $119. You can pay $12.99 monthly, but this will cost you $37 more per year. I’m not too fond of auto-renewals. Under your Prime Account settings, there is an option to get an email reminder three days before your membership renews.

Many people don’t know that you can get a free account if you shop Amazon for your business. It doesn’t come with perks like free videos. However, you will have access to multiple payment options, business-only pricing and quantity discounts. Learn more about how to register for your free Amazon Business account at this link.

There are other ways to save on your Prime membership. Two adult households do not need two Prime memberships.

⚡️ Read the full article on Motorious

Putting a value on a car that needs this much work is near impossible, but this Charger was recently sold on eBay for only $12,500, which has us scratching our heads a little. Although, this is a little reporting in reverse, the car runs, and you’d think that would be enough to boost the price of this Dodge Charger 500, a bit. Now, we’re somewhat wondering if the used car boom is leading people to back off of project cars right now, or maybe it’s a shortage of raw materials to make car parts needed to restore it?

We strongly stand by the idea that a collector car/vintage/classic, what have you, is worth exactly as much as someone will pay for it, but this seems like
