Tidbit Thursday: Which car colors can generate more cash at TRADE -IN????

When shopping for a car these days , there are an endless amount of options to make your selection more valuable...... 

CAR COLOR can be worth $$

 Did you know that your car's color can play a big role in getting more cash at TRADE-IN??? That's right, according to an article by AARP magazine, cars that are SILVER, WHITE,or BLACK are much easier to sell, describes Chief Economist at the National Automobile Dealers Association, Paul Taylor. These colors can earn you about $300 more in trade in value.

How interesting, I mean I agree that sometimes we like to be creative and go for the eccentric colors, like for example my previous car color was TEAL, but when it came time to sell it, I definitely had a challenge.

 So now, you maybe wondering what is the number one car color sold?
According to AARP magazine WHITE is tops the list followed by BLACK , then SILVER. The downside of  these three colors, is they are popular amongst car thieves.

Do you feel the color of the vehicle is most important when selecting a car??? If you could chose any exotic color to have your dream car what would it be?And why? Love to hear your thoughts ,comments...
