A reader asked “what do i need to buy a car”. What are things do i need to prepare if I will purchase a second hand car and a brand new car. Are the documents needed the same?

Buying a car is great. It is exciting especially the car you are buying is your dream car like mine. A simple Ford Everest is my dream car. Dream to have a brand new Ford Explorer this year. When buying car, there are lot of things to consider. I will share to you some of the car buying tips I personally use when buying a brand new and used car.


Car Buying Tip: Do shop online. Read the review of your preferred car model. Other car owner might already owned your preferred car, they already experience the features of highlights.

If you will ask me “what do I need to buy a car, I will only say “cash”. Why d you need to pay on cash basis. Imagine the interest if you buy a car through financing. It is easy to apply for a car loan especially if you have a high monthly income.

The question is “can you afford to pay for the monthly amortization?”. If your answer is YES, then buy a car through financing. What about the loan interest rate? Are you familiar with how much percentage a car dealer can get if you will buy a car in an installment basis?

Before you will buy a car, ask yourself how much money you can afford. What is your budget? Do you really need a car or you just want a car? Now you know the things needed to prepare when buying a car. Kindly add more information about this topic.
