Buying a car can be a very a very stressful task depending on where you are purchasing a vehicle. Easterns strives to provide a smooth, easy, and time efficient car buying experience that everyone can enjoy. We understand that everyone coming to purchase a vehicle does not have all of the cash in his or her pocket. The reality is most Americans choose to finance their vehicle. Variety is very important to us when it comes to our customers choosing a lender to finance their vehicle. This is why we offer 30 credible lenders to our customers such as Ally, SunTrust, TD, Wells Fargo, and Capital One Bank just to name a few. Each bank and financial institution is different and certain lenders may be a bitter fit for customers than others. A big factor that goes into deciding APR (Annual Percentage Rate) for an auto loan is a person’s credit score. Having a good credit score means that banks are more willing to work with you because of you previous track record. Your monthly payment is most likely to be lower when you have a better credit score. When banks see that you have a higher credit score, they tend to give people a higher rate because to them that you are a financial risk resulting in a higher monthly payment. Our new website allows customers to fill out the finance application online before they even come in to any of our 6 locations.

Buying a vehicle at Easterns is very different from buying a vehicle at a Buy Here Pay Here (BHPH) lot. A BHPH is type of dealership that targets people with bad credit that have most likely have tried to purchase a car elsewhere. Majority of the BHPH dealerships offer customers high interest rates with high payments. They tend to take advantage of their customers’ financial situation because they know that they are in need of a vehicle. In fact CARFAX published an article discussing what should be avoided when buying a car from a BHPH lot. They urge customers to watch out for the ridiculous terms such as “long loans and sky-high interest rates”. It’s important that potential car buyers have the proper information before signing something without knowing exactly what they are getting themselves into. Another thing to watch out for is overpriced cars. Vehicles at these lots typically are not the best quality, yet the prices are marked up so it is best to ask for a CARFAX or vehicle history report. The biggest thing car buyers should know is the importance of knowing their finances and what they can and cannot afford. Having this type of knowledge can prevent someone from making a financial mistake that could have been easily avoided.
