Asked by Feb 21, 2017 at 10:43 PM about the 2011 Honda Accord EX-L V6

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

I have a 2011 Honda Accord EX-L V6 for sale but I know that not many people would pay a large amount of cash. Is it possible to make a deal with a bank and finance the car, that way if a buyer wants to buy it, instead of paying me, they will pay the bank monthly?

Only if the buyer applies to the bank for a car loan. It will be their credit worthiness that gets them the loan. There is nothing you can do unless you want to co-sign the loan papers.

Getting a bank loan is hardly a new idea. Everyone knows you can borrow money to buy a car if your credit is good.

If you price the car correctly you should not have a problem selling it if it is a good car.

The car I am selling is priced lower than the actual value and its negotiable but I am having trouble selling the car. My asking price is $12K but I am willing to lower it up to $10K and people still find the car expensive.

You must live in a poor area. Sometimes you just have to be patient.

If they like it they will get the loan if needed, you want cash in hand either way unless you want to hold the title and let someone pay you payments. I did it once and ended up repoing it, the battery was dead and clutch was slipping, only good thing about it was he only had 3 more payments left to pay I gave him 2 extra months and told him when I was coming to get if he wanted to pay he could but did not and when I got back with it a man saw it stopped by and said I will trade you my car for that car over there so I looked at his and saw it had the motor/trans set up I was looking for to finish my project car and his whole car was running and driving great and I said Yes.
