Calculate Your Used Car’s Trade-In Value

When tackling how to trade in a car, the first step is simple. You don’t even have to leave your home. Just click on our Value Your Trade tool and enter quick facts about your car, like your year and model, and you’ll get a quick estimate of your car’s worth in the Houston area. This is based on what sellers in the surrounding area have paid recently. You can also get a few quotes from major resources like Kelley Blue Book® Value and Edmunds True Market Value®.

Get Your Used Car Appraised at North Freeway Hyundai

So, you’ve received your rough estimate based on Houston pricing. How does that translate into a real-world figure? For that information, you’ll need to drive down to the dealership for an in-person appraisal. We recommend scheduling a meeting to help the process go as smoothly as possible, but we’re happy to take walk-ins as well. Our team will examine your car’s condition and compare it to our inventory to determine a fair price. After the appraisal is complete, you’ll have a firm offer in hand.

Negotiate and Accept the Trade-In Offer

Now is the time to make some big decisions!

  • If your online estimates are higher than your in-person assessment, you can feel free to negotiate. 
  • If you are upside down on your loan, you can also consolidate what you owe with the price of your new vehicle to move forward more quickly.

And once you’re satisfied with your offer, just sign the paperwork and hand over the keys! This is also a great time to start browsing our new and used inventory for your next upgrade.
