Should You Buy Your Leased Car?

IStock_89544797_SMALLOne of the advantages of leasing is the opportunity to drive more car than you afford to buy. You can get more car for less money with a lease because you only pay for what you use during the lease term.

Let's say you lease a $50,000 car over a period of three years. The terms of the lease say if the car is driven 36,000 miles or less (the mileage cap) and maintained in a certain condition, the car will be worth $20,000 (the residual value) at the end of the lease. Thus, the total of your payments come to $30,000. You get to drive a $50,000 car for three years, for only $30,000.

And, if you'd like, you can buy the car at the end of the lease term. Which begs the question: Should you buy your leased car when the lease ends? Well, it depends.

As one of the busiest car-buying times of the year, car dealers traditionally offer special deals over this holiday weekend, but auto-industry experts are predicting lower sales this year compared with 2015, which means that potential car buyers have more negotiating power with dealers,  according to the 2016’s Labor Day Auto Financing Report released by the personal-finance website WalletHub.

The report compares auto-loan and auto-lease offers from a diverse group of more than 150 lenders to help prospective buyers find the best car deals.
