Leasing vs Finance
The value of leasing a new vehicle is it allows for options. Once your lease is up you can:
- List your vehicle on third party website like Kijiji or autoTrader.ca and sell it. All you need to do is make sure any offers pay for the residual value. Anything over the residual value can be pocketed.
- Return it to the manufacturer. This helps eliminate any negative equity (when the vehicle is worth less than the residual buyout.)
- If you love the vehicle you can always buy it out or finance the residual value.
