If you can do without, now’s a great time to sell your car

Table of Contents The supply-demand traffic jamSell now if you canAre you really sure you

Even smart budget-conscious buyers looking to spend less, not more, on a car are facing steep price jumps. The $11,505 price for a used Hyundai Accent and the $17,057 for a Mazda CX-3 cost 18% more than they did a year earlier.

The supply-demand traffic jam

The unprecedented rise in used-car prices has a few different drivers. A global shortage in semiconductor chips is slowing down the production of new cars, which shifts some buying demand into the used-car market. And while more households wait for new-car supply to improve, they are holding onto their existing cars, which reduces used-car inventory.

Also, the used market was already seeing plenty of demand during the heart of the pandemic, as some households fled cities for suburbia (or beyond) where owning a car was necessary, and other households chose to switch from public transportation to the lower-risk commute in their own car.

A rental-car industry scrambling to build back its fleet now that Americans are traveling again (and with many preferring driving to flying for the same safety reasons) is another contributor to the great used-car mania of 2021.

The $15.6 billion in used car sales in May 2021 was 44% higher than the monthly sales recorded in May 2019, before the pandemic.

Sell now if you can

But these high prices for used cars are not expected to last. As the global chip supply problem eases, manufacturers will be able to ramp up production lines for new cars, which will eventually ease demand for used cars. It may already be starting: The $15.6 billion in used-car sales recorded in May, was actually $2 billion less than the all-time peak of $17.8 billion a month earlier.

That makes the next few months a unique opportunity: Sell your used car, and you could get a lot more for it than you would in “normal” times. If you financed a car in the past few years, you might find you can sell for more than the remaining loan balance. Add in the savings from having one less car to insure and maintain, and you might be staring at a not-small windfall.

Are you really sure you need it?

For households with multiple cars, the challenge is to think through the feasibility of one less car. If you’ve made the move to remote work or predominantly remote work, it’s likely you could figure out how to “get by” on one car.

Even if you’re a single-car household, the great sellers’ market for used cars makes now a worthwhile time to run through need vs. want. Do you really need the car? If you live in an urban area where there’s mass transportation and ride-sharing, and you’re not stuck commuting five times a week anymore, how much could you save by going car-less? For those urban dwellers, be sure to factor in the paid parking you can kiss goodbye.

An added bonus is that once the loan is paid off in full, you will also likely see a nice boost in your credit score, as the unpaid debt is removed from all score calculations. If you’re sniffing around buying a house, getting rid of the car debt prior to applying for a mortgage can only improve your odds of landing a home loan or improving the terms. Households with no car payments can reap huge retirement savings benefits.

And even if a year from now you decide you do in fact prefer having a car, odds are that a better supply of new cars will have caused the used-car market to settle down from today’s nuttiness. In the meantime, you could be able to cash in on an up-is-down anomaly and sell your used car today for a price you never could have dreamed of pre-pandemic

People needed the basics such as food and clothing, but also education and codifying of marriages often legally forbidden for Blacks during slavery. Offices or bureaus were set up in 15 Southern states, including Georgia, in cities and multi-county districts that reported to state headquarters and, in turn, the national office.

Enslaved people, generally, were not counted in previous censuses. That is the roadblock millions of Black people face when searching for their roots in the country. The bureau records have the potential to fill in that gap for some families, but are more likely to provide a more general but more clear picture for students, scholars and laypeople about what that period of time was like.","_id":"GDA66OUI2REP7HEUY7OE3THDEY","additional_properties":"inline_comments":[],"comments":[],"_id":1629801416042,"type":"text","content":"Before the Ancestry digitization, which began in 2005, people could only search category by category, such as labor disputes or marriages, and they would have to go state by state, county by county or city by city.

One of her father’s friends, John Hartfield, also fled around the same time to avoid being lynched. Kirkland’s family moved to East St. Louis, only to survive the 1917 race riots there, where white citizens killed nearly 150 Black men, women and children in a spate of violence spurred by labor disputes. Kirkland’s family eventually settled in Buffalo, N.Y., but even after her 100th birthday, Kirkland told the story of Mississippi and East St. Louis to her nine children. Her youngest child, filmmaker Tarabu Betserai Kirkland, 71, began recording his mothers stories. But after learning that the Hartfield story had become a one of the many important ones told at the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery — dedicated to the thousands of Black people lynched in the U.S. after Reconstruction — Kirkland turned his mother’s story into a documentary.","subtype":"vimeo","referent":"referent_properties":"additional_properties":"comments":[],"_id":1629287429863,"provider":"https://vimeo.com/api/oembed.json?url=","service":"oembed","id":"https://vimeo.com/493147301","type":"vimeo","_id":"5OYFXOAQOBFBXBHB5M5XV56QN4","raw_oembed":"author_name":"Tarabu Betserai Kirkland","account_type":"plus","thumbnail_url_with_play_button":"https://i.vimeocdn.com/filter/overlay?src0=https%3A%2F%2Fi.vimeocdn.com%2Fvideo%2F1019805804_640&src1=http%3A%2F%2Ff.vimeocdn.com%2Fp%2Fimages%2Fcrawler_play.png","description":"","provider_url":"https://vimeo.com/","type":"vimeo","title":"100 Years From Mississippi Trailer","thumbnail_url":"https://i.vimeocdn.com/video/1019805804_640","version":"1.0","uri":"/videos/493147301","thumbnail_height":360,"duration":152,"author_url":"https://vimeo.com/user38044697","is_plus":"1","width":640,"thumbnail_width":640,"html":"","_id":"https://vimeo.com/493147301","additional_properties":"comments":[],"_id":1629287429863,"provider_name":"Vimeo","height":360,"upload_date":"2020-12-20 17:39:00","video_id":493147301,"type":"oembed_response","_id":"L66ZHGCHXFGULPSVLKF6M7DZCE","additional_properties":"inline_comments":[],"comments":[],"_id":1629064403436,"type":"text","content":"“It’s a story she had been sharing around the dinner table as long as I was conscious,” said Kirkland in an interview with The Atlanta Journal Constitution.","owner":"sponsored":false,"id":"ajc","address":,"syndication":,"caption":"A scene from Tarabu Betserai Kirkland's film, "100 Years from Mississippi" about his mother's return to Mississippi at 110 years old.","source":"system":"photo center","name":"AJC","edit_url":"","source_type":"staff","additional_properties":"editor":"photo center","taxonomy":"associated_tasks":[],"type":"image","distributor":"mode":"reference","reference_id":"8aec2b8c-455c-4816-903d-79fc8fdf8019","version":"0.10.3","url":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/ajc/E4LGQSYM3JFVLBQS5TZQQCM3X4.jpg","licensable":false,"credits":"affiliation":["name":""100 Years from Mississippi"","type":"author"],"by":["name":"Tarabu Betserai Kirkland","type":"author","byline":"Tarabu Betserai Kirkland"],"subtitle":"Mamie Lang Kirkland, 100 Years from Mississippi","width":640,"creditIPTC":""100 Years from Mississippi"","_id":"E4LGQSYM3JFVLBQS5TZQQCM3X4","additional_properties":"fullSizeResizeUrl":"/resizer/oBVank9-5C-Th3BM31eVg6rR7Pg=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-ajc/public/E4LGQSYM3JFVLBQS5TZQQCM3X4.jpg","owner":"[email protected]","comments":[],"proxyUrl":"/resizer/oBVank9-5C-Th3BM31eVg6rR7Pg=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-ajc/public/E4LGQSYM3JFVLBQS5TZQQCM3X4.jpg","originalUrl":"https://cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/ajc/E4LGQSYM3JFVLBQS5TZQQCM3X4.jpg","published":true,"resizeUrl":"/resizer/oBVank9-5C-Th3BM31eVg6rR7Pg=/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-ajc/public/E4LGQSYM3JFVLBQS5TZQQCM3X4.jpg","ingestionMethod":"manual","thumbnailResizeUrl":"/resizer/ZXFCGpGaiM_8ESCHnEjmlWkSD2M=/300x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-ajc/public/E4LGQSYM3JFVLBQS5TZQQCM3X4.jpg","version":0,"originalName":"Miss Mamie.jpg","mime_type":"image/jpeg","restricted":false,"template_id":594,"galleries":[],"_id":"FKYPKOPBBZHONMYF2HAVHQUHVM","created_date":"2021-08-15T21:27:25Z","last_updated_date":"2021-08-15T21:27:25Z","height":360,"image_type":"photograph","_id":"FCZ3EGNNWVGA7LERZYHN3OUEQM","additional_properties":"inline_comments":[],"comments":[],"_id":1629064403438,"type":"text","content":"His mother, who was still a dedicated Avon salesperson at 110 years old (watching her put on her foundation is life-affirming and a delight), had resisted going back to Mississippi, which she had not returned to since her family fled.

Of a piece with Michaela Coel’s Emmy Award-nominated HBO limited series, “I May Destroy You,” Lynette’s musical is raw, direct, funny and unflinching in the way it explores the aftermath of trauma. It is especially important for the way it addresses the taboo nature in which mental health issues are dealt with (or not) in parts of the Black community. Interspersed with song and dance sequences about her own family’s reactions to her pain and her own attempts at hiding it or running from it, Lynette and Ellis have interspersed interviews with several real young people struggling with depression.
