Are you ready to purchase a new vehicle? If so, there are a few things you need to do before jumping in and visiting a car dealership. One of these is figuring out how much you are able to afford. If you don’t take this important step, you may get in over your head financially.

Figure Out Your Budget 

Sit down and figure out all your expenses and how much you have coming in. Also, make sure to factor in expenses such as gas and groceries. Once you know how much you have leftover each month, you will know how much of a car payment you can afford.

Negotiate the Price

Don’t forget that the sticker price on a vehicle is not the “bottom dollar.” Before applying for a loan for the vehicle you are interested in, make sure to negotiate. In most cases, the dealer is going to work with you, especially if there is a vehicle you really want that is slightly out of your price range.
