We all know that the new model year begins sometime in the summer and goes through the end of the year. This means that the new 2014 cars are arriving on the dealership lots daily. The 2014 are on the lot before a dealer can sell all of the 2013 models. Right now, on car lots across the nation dealers like Savannah Hyundai are offering exceptional bargains on all of their 2013 Hyundai Inventory.
Whether you are looking for a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Fit or the all new Hyundai Accent, the end of the year is a great time to buy.
But this begs the question, if dealers want lots of inventory on their lots and the 2013s are such great cars, why would they really need to move them off the lot? Why worry right? Answer: It's all about lines of credit. Dealers have to buy their inventory from the manufacturers. And there are very few dealers in the US that can afford to pay that kind of money out of pocket. They get lines of credit in order to buy more cars. At the end of the year they are accountable for that inventory and taxed on that inventory. Financially, it would be devastating to end 2013 with all of that inventory on the lot. Car dealerships like to be as lean as possible by December 31st of each year. As usual, the deals are all about the money!
Additionally, car dealership sales representatives usually work on commission. Those commission reports are due at the end of each day, week and month respectively. There is a huge advantage to a salesperson if they can close the deal by midnight!
Another point to consider about working with a dealership sales person is that you are starting a relationship. That person will likely be your contact for all of the follow-up to buying your new car. Why not start the relationship out right by making their month a little better. You never know what incentives and extras you might receive in the future from cultivating that business friendship. Remember, professional car sales people, like those at Savannah Hyundai, have changed over the years. Gone are the pushy stereotypical car salesmen. Today, your auto professional has to have a wealth of knowledge and is responsible for a number of services after the sale of the car. Think smart and treat them right. It always pays off!
