How Do I Improve My Listing?

There are a number of things you can do to increase the visibility of your listing.

If you go to My Cars for Sale, you will find recommendations as well as information on how to upgrade your listing to "Featured Status".

Be sure to read the following article to make sure your listing qualifies for featured status:

Featured Private Listings

Additionally, from your My Cars for Sale page, you can add more details to your listing description. The more information the better! An honest and well-thought-out description will let buyers know you are serious about selling your car. 

Private sellers are allowed up to 32 images. Be sure to take many high-quality photos that show multiple angles of the interior and exterior of the vehicle. Disclosing any mechanical or cosmetic issues upfront will develop trust with prospective buyers and lead to smoother transactions down the line.



Please note, beginning June 27, 2024, CarGurus users will not be able to create new private listings, upgrade to featured listings, or extend current listings on the site. More information can be found here.
