Better To Buy A Car Before Or After Christmas

Buying a new car, or even a "new to you" car is a great feeling. However, when planning to move to a different state or across the country, it may be hard to decide if you should buy your car before you move or after you move.

Taking on debt shortly before filing for bankruptcy isn't a good idea. It can lead to objections to your discharge and even allegations of fraud in more egregious cases. Whether purchasing a car before or after bankruptcy is in your best interest will typically depend on:

Should I buy a new car before or after I relocate to Delaware? Hi, this Kathy Sperl-Bell of Active Adults Realty in Delaware, and this question came to me via past clients of mine who, they were out in the neighborhood and they were talking to some new arrivals from New Jersey, and they were very upset. Because they had bought their new car in New Jersey, they had paid the 6.625% New Jersey sales tax, and then they moved here to Delaware and guess what?

So, for more detailed Delaware tax information, I always recommend that you visit the site. And we do our very best to keep our own site up to date with our tax facts, but I always wanna recommend that you check the latest on the site, check with your accountant, check with your Active Adults Realty agent to make sure that you have all the information you need before you relocate, not after.

If you will need a loan to buy a car it may be a good idea to talk to your own bank or credit union about your options before you start shopping. You may be able to get a much better interest rate than what a dealership would offer you.

If you are anticipating needing bankruptcy, you may consider making big purchases -- like buying a car -- before you file your bankruptcy petition, so that the balance will be included in your Chapter 7 discharge. If you are worried about losing the vehicle to bankruptcy, you might even ask a family member to buy it for you, promising to pay them back for buying the car after the bankruptcy is over.

Most Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases take approximately 3 months from filing to discharge. However, depending on your financial situation, your bankruptcy attorney may recommend that you do some preparation before filing; for example, minimizing your debt or waiting out the clawback period explained above. A Chapter 7 discharge can also be delayed if there are problems selling non-exempt property, or if your schedule keeps you from completing the mandatory personal financial management court. A combination of these factors could leave some bankruptcy petitioners waiting the better part of a year for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Sometimes, your circumstances will not allow you to wait for the Trustee to liquidate your non-exempt assets and the court to enter a discharge. The good news is that you may still be able to purchase a vehicle while your Chapter 7 bankruptcy is pending. Bankruptcy petitioners who are employed can often get financing for a car loan after the Section 341 creditor hearing is over, but before their other debts have been discharged.

You can trade in a financed car at any time. It may not make financial sense to trade in a vehicle right after you've purchased it because of depreciation. Depending on the size of your down payment and the length of your loan, you'll usually want to wait at least one year, and ideally at least three, before trading in your vehicle. Looking up your vehicle's trade-in value can help you decide on the best time to trade it in.

A Christmas Story 2 is a 2012 American Christmas comedy film directed by Brian Levant and starring Daniel Stern and Braeden Lemasters.[1] The film is a direct sequel to the 1983 film A Christmas Story and ignores the events of the 1994 film My Summer Story. The film, set six years after the original, follows fifteen-year-old Ralphie as he wishes for a 1939 Mercury Eight convertible for Christmas, but crashes the car before he even owns it. Now, Ralphie and his friends (Flick and Schwartz) must find a way to raise enough money to fix the car before Christmas before his dad (The Old Man) finds out.

Another sequel, which takes place 33 years after the events of the original film with most of its cast returning, entitled A Christmas Story Christmas, was released on November 17, 2022 on HBO Max and received generally better critical reception.[3][4]

The film takes place in 1946, six years after the events of the original film. Ralphie is now fifteen years old, and all he wants is a used 1939 Mercury Eight convertible for Christmas. He tries testing the car out when he sees it on a display ramp, but he accidentally causes the car to roll back out of the used car lot and gently tap a light pole, causing a plastic reindeer to loosen and fall through the convertible top. Ralphie bands together with Flick and Schwartz to raise enough money to pay the dealer back for fixing it before Christmas so that the car dealer won't have Ralph arrested and presumably thrown in jail. He and his friends get a job and after going through several departments at the Higbee's store and in the end getting into a fight with the store Santa and then each other they all get fired. Ralphie does get his job back after some begging and pleading, but by Christmas Eve he finds he is still $1 short, so he and Flick rob Schwartz of his "lucky buck". While on the way to the dealer, Ralphie decides to donate a chunk for a less fortunate family. He winds up still off the hook with the owner of the dealership. In the end, he does get the car he wants for Christmas and the girlfriend he wants to go with it.

Does that mean you should always pay your car loan off before you trade it in for a new car? Not necessarily. While cars depreciate more in the first year or two, they tend to depreciate more slowly after that. Your car loan works the opposite way; it will amortize more slowly while the balance is high and more of your payment is going to interest, and then the loan balance decreases more quickly in later years as more of your payment goes to principal. At some point during the term of the loan, your loan balance and the value of your car will be equal. The timing of that will be different for every car and every loan, but when that happens, you can trade your car in with no negative equity! 041b061a72
