wanted to get some advice on selling my X3 privately.
What are 4-5 basic precautions I should take to avoid getting ripped off, transferring title correctly, paying proper taxes, etc...?
Obviously a valid driver's license is in order, but does my insurance cover them in a test drive? What kind of payment should I ask for, and how do I make sure it's good? Any and all constructive advice is appreciated. If I am selling it to someone out of my state do I go to my DMV a notary republic, etc..... or if they are nearby is it easier to go to their state and do the paperwork?
Maryland's laws are so screwy I want to also make sure everything transfer's correctly to the new owner and any taxes or fees are paid correctly so as not to financially burden myself or the buyer.
I have not bought a car privately in years. Pennsylvania is easy, but everything MD does is a real PITA.
