How is the market value calculated?

Buying a car is a significant investment in one’s life. It is crucial to understand the factors that impact your car's market value as it depreciates over time. Whether you're in the market to sell or trade in your current car or exploring options for car finance, having an understanding of what determines a car’s market value can assist you in making a well-informed decision.

Here is a guide to factors that are commonly used to determine the value of a car, which are also used in our car valuation calculator.

Odometer reading
The more kilometres your car has travelled, the lower its value will be.

Age of the car
Each passing month reduces the market value of your car.

Car Type
The market value of your car is influenced by its type, such as whether it's an SUV or a luxury brand.

Does your car have numerous scratches and dents, or does it still have that new car shine?

The value of your car can be influenced by its location within Australia.

Time of the year
Did you know that cars typically fetch lower prices during the winter months?

Vehicle Availability
Cars that are in high demand but have a limited supply tend to hold their market value better.

The final price of your car can be influenced by who is involved in the transaction, such as whether you're selling to a dealer or selling privately.
