    Selling a car back to the person we bought it from..

    Bought my girlfriend a little Ford Ka to learn in 6-7months ago from a private seller for Ł650.
    Since owning it we have only taken it out when giving her lessons and have done no more than 100 miles.

    Seller texted us a few months ago asking to give her first refusal if we decide to sell the car on.

    Anyway, we are looking to sell it now for something a bit bigger and have offered it to the person we bought it from. They have come back and asked how much we want for it.

    Do you reckon it's taking the pee asking for Ł650, the price we paid them 7 months ago???

    The car's condition is better now if anything. Gave it a good clean, put on some proper Ford wheel trims instead of the dodgy ones that were on there.

    So what do you reckon???

    We've had a change of plate (new reg) since you've bought so id knock about Ł50-Ł100 off. Regardless of the miles you have or havnt put on it etc its still 7 months older. As you know sellers want a good price and buyers was a bargain... there are alot of bargains out there!
    Good luck and hope you get what you ask.

    True. But she really wants this car back as she knows it well and it's been in her family for a good few years so knows the history of it.

    Might give it for Ł50 cheaper as a nice gesture???

    That bloody tax cost almost Ł70 though!!

    Yeah I reckon Ł600. Thinking about it I'd feel a little bit cheeky asking for the Ł650 back, especially with hardly any mot left.

    TBH I'd be more worried about little MOT than no Tax. So asking Ł600 is there or there abouts. Plus you have something over her if she really wants it back!!! Good luck.

    S'pose thats a good point, I would rather a car with long MOT and no tax rather than the other way around too.

    Ok, so we've offered it at Ł600, the buyer has agreed the price and just needs to see if she can borrow the money now. It's all come a bit out of the blue for her!

    Cheers guys and gal.

    Also there is now another owner in the car's history, but I guess if the buyer does not take that into account then it shouldn't affect the price you give!

    Brilliant!!!

    Aythree look at as thought you got a car to help the gf get through the initial driving stages. That car has now served it's purpose and you no longer need it.

    I'd sell it as they clearly want it back! Check for any treasure maps or a diamond ring tucked aways in the seats or any gaps

    am i missing the point? Why would someone buy a car back at the same price as what they sold it to you for. I think you might need to re-evaluate this one - "first refusal" means exactly that. I am not trying to be funny it just seems like we are getting a little excited here!

    I guess some cars have just hit their lowest value, and just because it was sold for one price does not mean it's still worth it now. If my dad sold me a ferrari for 5k, when it was worth 100k should i only ever sell it for 4k? A bit extreme I know, but as Aythree said, the car has more tax than it came with so there is grounds for it being the same value.

    Well she agreed to buy it back for Ł50 less than she sold it to us for (although speaking to her I could tell she would've given us back the full Ł650. She seemed almost (pleasantly) surprised that we offered it back at Ł600 and accepted without question).
    Anyway, the car we were going to upgrade to fell through so the whole chain was off. She's disappointed but we did make it clear to her from the start that we would only sell the car if we got the other one we were interested in.

    Still looking though.

    Just something a little bigger the a Ka for when she passes her test. Maybe a Polo, Punto, 206, something like that.
