Default Suggestion for selling.

Hi Everyone,

Someone recently banged my car from behind, and the chachis was damaged just below the dickie at driver side. I got repaired the car with a really nice workshop(insurance covered) and it feels even better than before while driving.
However, they did the full car paint excluding roof as well as changed rear and front bumper plus chachis job.

I would like to ask should i keep the car or sell just because it was banged?
please advice.

It is consider as used cars so price won't be similar to its original price try to put 10% lower.

You can check sites like Edmonds or Official Kelley Blue Book Values You Can Trust From - Kelley Blue Book to get some idea of how much the value declines with each year. Prices can vary locally thus check local prices via newspapers, Craigslist or whatever is used to sell cars in you area.

There could be a deduction in value depending on the extent of the damage and how good it was repaired. If a buyer has a number of used cars to pick from they might shy away from the one that was damaged or value the car at a lower price.

As to selling or keeping that's up to you. Most buyers will question the accident, selling now or later will not change this. Also keep in mind expenses such as sales tax on a replacement car, etc.
