Private party auto loan
Buying a used car from a dealership is undoubtedly convenient, but making a purchase from a private seller has advantages too, like cutting out the middleman. Many vehicles are bought from private sellers and, without the luxury of ready cash, many of those are purchased with the help of financing. That’s where private party auto loans make an appearance. A private party car loan is financing offered by a lender specifically to fund a person-to-person auto purchase.
How does a private party auto loan work?
Just like when buying a car from a dealer, it may help to start the financing process by using auto loan calculators to estimate what you can afford. Once you’ve got an idea of the total amount you can spend on a vehicle, what your monthly payments might be, and the effect of interest rates and loan duration, the next step is to apply for a private party loan. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), a government body looking after the interests of consumers, recommends shopping around for financing in order to compare terms. So shop around for a private party auto loan with lenders like RoadLoans. RoadLoans is an online, direct-to-consumer auto lender with a streamlined process. We offer competitive private party auto loan rates to qualified buyers, and we accept applications from consumers with all types of credit.
Applying takes just minutes and you’ll receive an instant loan decision. If approved, here are six key points to know about buying a car from a private seller through RoadLoans:
1. It takes about 15 days to complete the whole loan process.
2. We work with a third party that assists with paperwork to perfect the lien.
3. You must locate a seller willing to work through the RoadLoans process.
4. We ask for a vehicle inspection (not a mechanical inspection) to ensure the vehicle you want to buy is approved for sale and meets our requirements.
5. The vehicle must be 12 years old or newer with up to 100,000 miles on the clock.
6. If buyer and seller work together and provide the required documents in a timely manner, the private party car loan process can be seamless.
We want to make new and used car financing as smooth as possible. As an online, direct-to-consumer lender, our process is fast, efficient and offers many advantages. You can apply for car loans from home, work or your mobile device in just a few minutes, and receive an immediate decision.
