The Best Used Cars to Buy If You’re a Realtor or Real Estate Agent

Used Car Realtor or Real Estate Agent

If you make your living as a realtor or real estate agent, you may have a number of considerations when it comes to purchasing a used vehicle. The most common considerations are budget, ability to transport people, and comfort.

With those considerations in mind, we have reviewed a number of vehicles, and chosen five that we think are most appropriate for realtors and real estate agents. They are the Nissan Sentra, Kia Forte, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, and Cadillac ATS.

  • Nissan Sentra: This compact four-door sedan isn’t hard on the wallet, but it won’t make you look cheap, either. The interior is very well-executed, and the exterior appearance suggests a far more expensive ride. You’ll enjoy highway gas mileage up to 40 mpg, making the Sentra economical to run as well as to buy.

  • Kia Forte: This is another model that might surprise you. Simply stated, it doesn’t look like an econobox any longer. With a re-work in 2013, the Forte is now very visually appealing, and also offers considerably more room in the interior. It’s a nice, comfortable ride that you’ll look good in, and it won’t break the bank.

  • Ford Fusion: Sometimes, when you’re driving people around, showing houses, you need something a little bigger than a compact. We like the Ford Fusion – it’s a reliable, solid sedan, and it’s attractive enough that people might even mistake it for a luxury car. It’s also roomy, and is available as a gas model, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid.

  • Honda Accord: The Accord isn’t quite as stylish as the Fusion, but it is still a very attractive car. Small on the outside, you’ll still have plenty of room for your passengers on the inside. We like the blind-spot camera system – it can save you from fender-benders and embarrassment in front of your clients as well.

  • Cadillac ATS: New in 2013, the ATS is fast, fun to drive, and one of the most exciting compact luxury models to hit the market in quite some time. You can pick one up used on a lease buy-back, and if you want to look really good while you’re out showing houses, we think you should. We’re quite partial to the high-tech features, especially the CUE infotainment system.

Budget, passenger capacity, and appearance are all important considerations for realtors and real estate agents when it comes to choosing a used vehicle. At YourMechanic, we recommend the Sentra and Forte for the budget-conscious, the Fusion and Accord for “people movers,” and the Cadillac ATS for making a great impression.
