Buying a new car is a big and important investment any month of the year, but according to executive editor at Kelley Blue Book, Charlie Vogelheim, December is the best month during which to make the investment. He sets forth several factors that help make December the ideal time for car buyers to find the vehicle of their dreams for the lowest price.
The friendly and helpful sales team at Beach Ford works with customers to find “that” car, truck or SUV for a reasonable price all year long, but here are a few of Vogelheim’s reasons to shop in December.
-We as a dealership face an “inventory tax” on inventory that isn’t sold by December 31. You are more likely to find a fantastic deal on the vehicle you want since we need to get cars off the lot.
-Since new model year vehicles begin arriving on the lot in Autumn, you may find last year’s model at a cut rate during the holidays. This makes December an ideal time to buy if you aren’t concerned about having the very latest styles and features (believe us, last year’s models are also awesome!)
–Vehicle manufacturers like Ford decide how much inventory to send based on the number of vehicles we sell in the previous year. And since the team at Beach Ford likes to have a huge variety of quality cars on the lot all year, we are eager to sell as many new vehicles as possible by December 31.
Say “Merry Christmas” With a New Ford for Less
One great perk of these ideal December shopping conditions is how accessible and comparatively affordable it is to buy yourself or your loved one a new vehicle as a gift. Those commercials where the husband or wife walks into the driveway on Christmas morning to see a new car wrapped with a giant red bow? That could be you…and for a lot less if you choose to shop in the next few days before Christmas.
Come on in to Beach Ford. Our sales and service professionals will never pressure you into making a purchase or settling for a vehicle that doesn’t match your precise expectations. We pride ourselves on the commitment to creating lifelong relationships with customers in December, January and beyond.
