Car Buying Tip 1 - Take Your Time

Realize how big a purchase a car is. It's the second-largest purchase most people make after buying a home. When you buy a home, you have so much help: a broker to help you find the home, and a mortgage broker for financing. An inspector, an attorney, a title search, a mover, and more.


But when you buy a car, nobody is there to help you. And the dealers want you to THINK you can waltz in to the dealership and buy a car in an afternoon... and you can, but you will pay much more if you do. So, just take your time and do a little bit at a time.
