Have a few more month to my current lease- debating if I shoiuld grab deals now or wait till I need it..
or just buy it out and sell it at carmax, if the values there. I've done it many times, usually make a couple bucks on the deal

Can you elaborate? I always thought this is the right way to approach the end of a lease, but never hear of people doing it. Is it usually when you've used a lot less than your allotted miles that it becomes profitable?

Pashut. Walk into carmax, near the airport. Bring the registration with you, and a recent statement from Honda or whoever . They take your car and give you a quote. Try to go when Honda is open, and they’ll call and get the exact payoff. If you come out on top they hand you a check, they keep the car. If not you have a quote that’s good for a week, so you can find out if they’ll make you pay in and decide what to do. Done it several times, it’s mamash a cinch. Takes about 45 minute plus travel time.

I'm sure on a camry or accord the value is there- but not for my crv. Either way it's good to know

I'd imagine it has more to do with how close the estimated residual value that was used to calculate the lease price is to the actual value of the car when you're looking to sell it.

That's why I mentioned the example of a lease where the allotted mileage was underused, that'll boost the actual value relative to the estimated residual value.

that's exactly right. That being said, some cars hold their value better than others. but if you're way under or way over on your mileage its a slam dunk

Oh man, you got me all excited. Then I search on CarMax and I see the closest one to the NY Metro area is in Easthaven, CT. Are there any similar companies that might have locations a little closer?
