Timing, in many ways, really is everything.
With the gift of 20:20 hindsight, it’s very easy to see when the best time to do any given thing would have been. Unfortunately, 20:20 hindsight only shows what could have been, it doesn’t really give one the benefit of what can be.
Or does it?
Often by observing what has worked in the past, we can get insights as to what might work today. And this timing can be everything. By learning from those who went before us, we don’t have to repeat their mistakes.
Perhaps in few other arenas is this as true as it is for buying a new car. As chaotic as it seems, it really is a rather ordered process, with some significant consistencies. After all it’s a business system, so there have to be some parameters within which it must operate to be continually successful.
With that that said, there are some universal truths to car buying.
One of them is there is definitely a best time to buy a car and there is also a worst time to buy a car if you’re looking to get the best possible price on it.
