Should I Use a Car Buying Agent?

car buying agents

A traditional auto broker compared to a car buying agent is very different.

An auto broker may purchase a vehicle for you, then mark up the vehicle. They might even buy the vehicle at auction. Car buying brokers can locate a vehicle and help negotiate a purchase, but they will often purchase your trade in and sell it for profit.

Sometimes they will work with specific dealerships who pay them a commission. The broker will work with the dealership who offers the best commission. Typically, negotiations are on the sale price but not the finance options for the buyer.

With pay being distributed on both ends of the deal, by the dealership AND the consumer, this of course creates a conflict of interest. Brokers are unable to work in a fiduciary capacity for the consumer when paid by both sides.

Most car buying agents are different from brokers

For example, Your Car Buying Advocate, founded by Mike Rumple, a former car salesman, who was sick of the conflict of interest set out to provide a consumer advocate experience like no other.

Car buying agents and services like YCBA alleviate the conflict of interest because compensation is not accepted from anyone other than the consumer. This allows a true advocate for the car buying consumer which is a big differentiator.

In fact, you can find YCBA listed as a number one car buying service in 2021 on CarEdge.comWorking in a fiduciary capacity allows us to never waiver on our principles of loyalty, trust and obligation to serve our clients with all of the information they need to make an informed car buying decision.

We speak on behalf of and represent our clients. We bring comfort to the car buying process. With our knowledge of the car buying process and auto industry we negotiate FOR the client.
