That's according to new data from iSeeCars.com, which surveyed 8 million used car sales from February to July 2021 to determine where people pay the most and least for cars.

Price fluctuations are based on "a combination of geography and population," said Matt DeLorenzo, senior managing editor at the Kelley Blue Book. Of the five states with the highest prices, four are in the west.

“You will find more cars in easily accessible areas with higher populations: Alaska is far away and sparsely populated,” he explains.

Is it worth crossing state lines to buy a used car

If used cars in your area are out of your budget, it makes sense to broaden your search. But is it worth crossing state lines to get a discount? “It depends on you,” DeLorenzo says. “If you can get your car home in a day, then this is probably a good idea. In the future, you must take into account the transport costs. Plus there are gas, food and lodging costs that can eat up any money you save. "

Check out the different dealerships in the area where you live first, then broaden your search. A larger radius can mean more vehicle options and a much wider price range, but you need to keep an eye on the amount of money you spend getting to and from the destination.

“However, if you're looking for something out of the ordinary, you can find it in a less densely populated area,” notes DeLorenzo. "You can find a sports car in Montana that you can buy for less than in a more densely populated area, where more people are looking for the same car."

Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book and similar sites can help you compare costs across areas.

Consider the complete financial picture

Wherever you decide to buy a car, immediately contact the seller. Discuss any additional features or suggestions that interest you and get ready to negotiate. “You may have to make some concessions,” emphasized Brian Moody, executive editor at Autotrader.

“The more specific the characteristics you set, the more difficult it will be to find a car,” he explained. “Look for cars that the dealer already has in stock and be flexible in color, year of manufacture, options and interior.”

Consider the full financial picture, advises DeLorenzo, for example, if you have a "high value car that can be exchanged or would be more profitable to sell to an individual or another dealer." And don't rule out the idea of ​​buying a new car: it could end up costing less.
