Just as you normally would, the only problem will be that you will owe more money then you will get. To prevent this from happening, research cars before you buy them to see which retain their value the best. Another option is to buy used cars, because a car typically loses the most value in years 1-3, so if you were to buy a car that is three years it will depreciate at rate slower than a brand new car.

How can you sell a car that you owe more on than what it's worth in other words where does the balance you owe transfer to?

If you car is finance, there is a lien against it by the bank or loan company. This Lien will have to be removed, which means that the balance owed on the vehicle has to be paid in full in order to get a clear title to sell the car. You are "upside-down" on your car loan ... where you owe more than it is worth or can be sold for. You need the permission of the loan company to sell the car ... you can't sell it without the title, and the company that holds the title (aka pink slip) also holds the note for the loan that you are paying back monthly. You will need to pay the balance of the loan regardless of what price you could sell it for. In this case, you will be handing over a large sum of money just to sell the car ... best thing to do is just keep it.

If your car isn't paid off at the time you wish to sell it, things are a little more complex.

What happens when they repo a car and loan is still owed and they put car up for auction Who is responsible for the balance of the car loan?

I'm not sure if this is valid in every state, but I believe that if the car is sold at an auction, you will still be liable for the left over balance. If the car is sold at an auction and the sell price covers the balance of the loan then, I don't think you will need to pay anything else. Maybe some fees for the repo. I "think" this is how it works

Sell it for what you owe if it is possible. Pay off the loan, get the title and sign it over to the new buyer. If you cannot get what you owe, then get as much as you can. Get a personal loan from the bank to pay of the remaining balance. The personal loan is better than the amount you owe on the car.


How do you sell a car when you are upside down on the loan?

If you have funds to pay off the loan balance, you can sell a vehicle with negative equity. Example: you owe $10k on a car, but the best offer you have is $8k. You must be able to payoff the remaining $2k balance of the loan to your lender to fully absolve yourself of the financial obligations as a borrower. Transfering the title is another matter, and you should reference your state laws.

Contact the lender and explain the situation. They may be able to rearrange the loan so that you can make the payments. You could also sell the car and pay off the loan.

Bottom line is do all in your power to avoid having the car repossessed. If they repo the car you will be responsible for not only the difference in what they sell the car for and the balance on the note, but also the repo fees. Your credit will also be ruined for 7 years. Don't let it happen. Talk to the lender, ASAP.
