If you are wanting to get the most bang for your buck, waiting to shop for a car until the end of the year might just be a great way to do it. Here are some tips to keep in mind while you prepare to shop!


  1. Know When to Shop – There is no “end of year” date in the car shopping world. The best bet is to research dealerships and look for the end of year specials they may be running. Check out Own a Car Fresnos end of year sale here!

  2. Narrow Down Options – Figure out what car you are looking for, what are your needs? Check dealerships that have that specific car then go from there in comparing them all. It might also be helpful to make a list of Needs vs Wants for what you are looking for in a vehicle.

  3. Plan your trip – Remember weekends are usually dealerships busy days so if that is the only time you can visit, maybe call ahead and make an appointment, or be sure to bring your patience. Weekday visits could be best for you because you could get a more personal experience or even a salesperson that is more willing to go above and beyond with negotiations.

  4. Don’t Lose Out on a Great Deal – We know you don’t want to be rushed into anything, but remember great deals don’t usually last, so get out there, do your research and snag a deal for yourself!
