While in the process of selling my '96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, it has come to my attention how tough it is to put a price tag on a used vehicle (especially one with 138k miles). Where do you price something that has brought you so much joy over the past 5 years? A good place to start is Kelly Blue Book. I figure a fair price is someplace between the private seller price of $4,110 and the retail price of $5860. It's also difficult to figure out the current value of any after market stuff you've added to a vehicle. For my Jeep it has new tires, new rear speakers, Pioneer CD player, Pioneer 12-disc changer and a full size spare. So taking all that into consideration, I'm asking $4,845 b/o for it. In addition, I've decided to sell my Thule Bike/Ski rack ($325), 2 10"sub/boxes ($150), and a Grille Guard ($150) with the Jeep.
I guess we'll see how close I am to selling it at fair market price. If you have any thoughts, advice, or feedback, please leave a comment. OR if you know someone interested in a used SUV please contact me.
