What Does Your Best Deal Score Number Mean?

How Is The Best Deal Score Calculated?
Traditionally, analyzing vehicle pricing has proven stressful for nearly all prospective car buyers. From checking the price of other vehicles to consulting with automotive pricing software - deciding whether you’re getting a good deal or not can be very tricky. That’s why Best Car Finder created the “Best Deal Score,” an algorithm that generates a score based on analytical elements that factor into the car buying process. Each “Best Deal Score” is individually calculated based on a variety of factors set forth by Best Car Finder’s team of automotive pricing experts. Our algorithm takes into account factors such as: current market value, other recently sold listings & prices, vehicle availability, specification, number of vehicles currently on the market, and more. With Artificial Intelligence, the “Best Deal Score” updates automatically based on current market conditions, how long other vehicles have been on the market, and a number of other analytical factors essential in determining vehicle pricing.
Why do some listings not display a Best Deal Score?
While most vehicles on Best Car Finder receive a “Best Deal Score” almost immediately, some may require additional data in order to properly calculate a score. In these instances, we will not display the “Best Deal Score” until the relevant data is collected.
