Autotrader,  I never worked with them personally
But they essentially send you to dealers, no? Not quite the same as CarMax, where it sounds like you just walk into their store and they do the rest.

Would it also depend on how much you pay per month.... the higher monthly payments the lower the residual?

It's generally the other way around. They set a residual value and then figure out the lease payments that bring you from the new car value to the residual value.

Has anyone else sold an end-of-lease car to a dealer (like Carmax) in the NY area? My lease is up in a month and the car is way under its mileage (only 15,000 miles and 36,000 were allowed) and Edmonds and Kelley Blue Book are both showing the resale value of the car as significantly more than the payoff value. Any advice?

We've bought our Odyssey at the end of the lease and sold it for a profit, however, we were surprised to see that there could be a $1200- $2000 tax/doc/license transfer fee when doing so... 
(you can still profit; just info to prepare you...)

In CA that's only if you buy it out yourself, not if a dealer buys it.

Interesting. I notice that if I do a payoff quote on the Nissan Finance website it shows a lower price (by $2-3k) for 'Dealer' than for 'Other Financial Institution'. It wasn't clear what that meant, but maybe this has something to do with it?
