Valuation surprise !!


Recommended Posts

Thank you for letting me join your forum, ...   I've lurked in the background and learned an awful lot about my car and Jaguars in general for a quite a while now without wanting/needing to post;   ..  but now I am thinking of changing my car I was shocked by the second massive drop in value, ..     

  I was very lucky to buy my "fully loaded"  Oct 2015 XJ Portfolio JLR ex-management company car through the dealership in Derby when it was just 18 months old with approx 9500 miles on it, ... I was very pleased to get a car for £37k, which when I ran it through the online configurator came in at over £86k, .... I obviously benefited enormously from that first year falling off a cliff price drop, though I don't really understand why it was just such a drop, ...  I wasn't going to look a gift horse in the mouth, ...   

My surprise now, though is how much it has continued to fall/depreciate ...  it is now a little over 5 years old with 57k miles and I have been offered £16k as trade in !!   that's a £70k drop in 5 years ! 

Is this a surprise to anyone else ?

No the figures are about what I would have expected, the new buyer always takes the biggest hit. I could not afford to buy a new Jag and change it every two years like some people do but even if I could I really can't see the logic in it.
