How Does Financing a Car Work?

When you are looking for auto financing in the Farmington Hills area, you cannot get better than our car dealership at Ray Laethem Buick GMC, Inc.. You can either apply for a loan through the dealership, a bank, or a credit union. You can apply for financing with us online or you can visit the dealership for a loan at the dealership. Factors that the lender will review include:

  • Credit Card Score
  • Credit Reports
  • Car Loan Amount
  • Length of Loan
  • Debt-to-Income Ratio
  • Age of the Vehicle

If you are looking to improve your credit score or if you do not have a strong credit score, consider asking a friend or a close friend to cosign the loan.

Choose Your Lender

Once you get your loan approved, you have several options to choose from depending on your credit history. If the dealership offers in-house financing, you can compare their offers to a credit union or a bank to check if the total cost is smaller and better for your budgetary needs. Take a look at the money you can put down, and the rates and terms to be sure you can pay the car payments on time.

Finalize the Loan Terms

Before you finalize your loan and buy the vehicle, you can then negotiate on the price. If this is what you want, you and the salesperson can collaborate on an interest rate that works for you. Then you can finalize the loan and close the deal, sign all the paperwork, deliver the vehicle, and drive home in the vehicle of your dreams.
