signing a lease

Can you negotiate a lease buyout? Of course you can! There are many reasons a driver may be considering buying out their lease. Sometimes they truly love the car they’re driving and want to keep it for years to come, or maybe they’ve put on more miles driving around Lakewood than they anticipated. Whichever your reason is for wanting to start a car lease buyout negotiation, you’ll be glad to know that in many cases you can negotiate a lease buyout with your lender. Honda Universe of Lakewood wants your end of lease negotiation to go smoothly, so let’s talk about how to negotiate a car lease buyout.

Two Kinds of End of Lease Negotiations

There are two kinds of end of lease negotiations – a lease-end buyout and an early lease buyout. Both options will help you secure your vehicle for future Lakewood driving. Here are the details:

Lease-end buyout. This happens at the end of your lease. The terms of this car lease buyout are usually spelled out in your lease agreement. But in some cases, you can still negotiate the price.

Early lease buyout. This car lease buying negotiation happens before the end of your lease. You will need to do your research in order to get favorable terms, but this option can save money for many Toms River drivers.

How to Negotiate a Car Lease Buyout

The secret of how to negotiate a car lease buyout before the end of your lease lies in your research. Ideally, you want to able to show that you could purchase your vehicle at a dealership for less than the lease agreement’s purchase price. If you can do that, call the financing institution that holds your lease and make an offer for less than what you owe. Most lenders would rather sell the car to you at a lower price than risk you walking away from the lease. But you will want to do this well before your lease ends.
