A Resource for Dealers to Hold More Gross on Used Vehicle Sales

An arti­cle from AutoGuide.com rein­forces what we’ve been hear­ing about in remar­ket­ing for sev­er­al months. Cit­ing a joint report from Black Book and Fitch Rat­ings Inc., used car prices are expect­ed to drop at an accel­er­at­ed rate this year, com­ing from increased sup­ply and larg­er off-lease vol­umes. Black Book and Fitch pre­dict that last year’s annu­al depre­ci­a­tion rate of 12.1% will see a sig­nif­i­cant rise, end­ing the year at 14.5%.
