Your credit score and the credit score of any co-signers.
The debt-to-income ratio for anyone signing on the loan.
The value of any trade-in, as well as any additional money made as a down payment.
The length of the loan, with a longer loan having lower monthly costs and a shorter loan providing a lower overall cost.
How Does Financing With Sweeney Chevrolet Work?
Here at Sweeney Chevrolet, we provide our buyers with the option to use our in-house financing to quickly and easily get the funding they need to purchase their new car. If you're considering buying from Sweeney Chevrolet and want to take advantage of our in-house financing options, here's what you should expect.
The first step to getting financing with Sweeney Chevrolet is to fill out our simple online financing application. With the online application, you'll provide the basic information our finance professionals need to assess your financing opportunities and provide you with the best terms available for you. The data provided is broken down into a few crucial sections:
Basic personal information, including your name, birthday, and contact information.
Home finance information, like information about your rent or mortgage costs
Employment information, such as where you work and what your current income is so we can assess your current financial burden in comparison to your current income.
Vehicle purchase information about the car you are looking to buy and the size of the loan you are seeking in order to finance your new purchase.
If you already own a car, one of the best ways to reduce your costs when making a new car purchase is to trade in your current vehicle, and Sweeney Chevrolet makes that process easy, as well. Using our online trade-in calculator, you can get a quick overview of your trade-in for a preliminary report. A member of the Sweeney Chevrolet staff will then be in touch to arrange for an in-person inspection to get a final assessment of the value of your current car. That value can then be applied to a down payment in order to improve the terms of your financing arrangement for your brand new Chevy.
How Can You Prepare for Your New Car Financing?
Although we are here to help you when it comes to securing financing for your new car purchase, there are still things you can do on your own to make the process even easier and help get yourself the best possible financing deal. Here are some steps you can take to make the financing process even smoother for you and your Sweeney financing professional:
Check your credit score: Your credit score is a key part of any loan, so you should take steps immediately to improve your credit, whether your next purchase is right around the corner or far in the future. Using a free credit tracking app is a simple way to monitor and improve your score.
Have a budget in mind: You should also take the time to set a budget for your next purchase. By assessing your monthly income and expenses, you can determine how much you can responsibly afford to pay your car payments. If you're unsure of what your payments will be, try out our online payment calculator to determine how much you should expect to pay for a variety of financing structures.
Handling financing for any major purchase isn't usually the fun part of the experience, but here at Sweeney Chevrolet, we do everything in our power to make the process as enjoyable as possible.
