How to Negotiate a Car Lease Buyout 

Can you negotiate a lease buyout? Yes. Here are the steps that Nashua drivers will need to take. 

  1. Do your research ahead of time - Before deciding on an end of lease negotiation, you'll need to do your math to determine if it's a good investment. Look at your existing lease contract. There is almost certainly a predetermined estimate of how much the vehicle will be worth at the end of your contract. Compare that figure with the market value of your vehicle. If the market value is significantly lower, a lease buyout probably isn't worth it, unless you can leverage that information for a better deal. 
  2. Contact your lender in advance - See if you can get an offer from a financier in Manchester that you can then use as leverage when negotiating for a rate and price when you come to our table for negotiations. 
  3. Make an offer - Once you've done the above, make an offer given what you know about the market rate of the vehicle you're pursuing and whatever pre-approvals you've received from other lenders. 

Choosing the Right Lease Buyout

Now that you know that you can negotiate a lease buyout, and you know how to negotiate a car lease buyout, it's time to learn about the different types of lease buyout strategies. Let's take a look: 

  • Most lease buyouts are end of lease negotiations. This means that the estimated value of your lease vehicle at the end of your lease term is prenegotiated. When your lease is up, you'll have the option to finance the remaining value of the vehicle with the intent of ownership. 
  • If you quickly fall in love with your leased car, know that you'll want to finance it, and don't want to pay over-mileage fees, an early lease buyout may be a good option. The downside is that you may have to pay a penalty to break your lease so you can begin financing your vehicle.
