Buying a car for 3-9 months : maximizing resale value when selling on
I'm looking to buy a used car (mid size sedan or small SUV/crossover) to use over the next 3-9 months at which point I would look to sell it either privately or back to a dealer.
I'm trying to find a make/model/year which would minimize the loss I'll make on the resale when the 3-9 months is up. I can spend up to $15k - but I'm not sure if I should max out my budget now and try to recoup as much as possible when I resell, or spend as little as possible now and then treat it as a sunken cost/loss.
Any recommendations on makes/models/years/which path I should go down?
