There are few moments in life more intimidating than walking into a car showroom. You know the drill.
You walk in and the salesmen pounce. A few hours later, you've looked at and test drove so many cars, and haggled with so many people, that you sign on the dotted line just to get out of there.
Of course, that dotted line probably means you're driving away in a car that you overpaid for. Fortunately, you don't need to deal with that these days. You can shop around for cars online.
Even if you don't buy a car online, and most people don't, you can do all your research ahead of time. Find out how much a car is worth, and find its specs. Make sure it has the power you want and the gas mileage that'll save you money.
For decades, Kelley Blue Book has been synonymous with car prices. Years ago, you'd open up an actual blue book and thumb through its pages to find out how much you should pay for a car, or how much you can get for your car.
These days, Kelley Blue Book is the go-to site for car prices. Simply input some details about the car, like year, make, model and mileage. You can add in more details about your car's features, like its color. Once you input all the information, you'll see the dollar value of that car.
Note: Before you sell, check how much your car is worth, if you trade it in or sell it. Most of the time, you'll get more for your car if you sell it to another person. If you're buying a used car, you'll get a better deal if you steer clear of dealerships.
