You’ll hear a lot of Danvers drivers talking about how buying, as opposed to leasing, is an investment; after all, you’re putting in money to make the car yours. So, it should come as no surprise that residual value is important.
All new cars depreciate in value, so the car you’re investing in is going to be worth less as the years go by. However, a car with high residual value isn’t going to depreciate as dramatically. That helps when the time comes for you to sell your vehicle and move on to a new one.
Residual value is just as important when leasing a vehicle, if not slightly more. Residual value is a crucial factor in determining your monthly payments. When you lease, you’re essentially paying for the value the car loses while it’s in your possession. If the car loses a smaller portion of value – in other words, if it boasts high residual value – the monthly payments will be lower.
