Eric Mitz

Eric's Expert Take

Eric is our founder and CEO and has nearly 15 years of experience buying and selling used and junk cars in the state of Maryland. He is also a data nerd with a finger on the pulse of the cash for cars industry and salvage vehicle values.

Hello, I’m Eric Mitz, the mastermind behind The Clunker Junker. I’ve been observing our recent sales in Maryland and I’ve got some interesting findings to share. On the whole, our payout for vehicles in that region is approximately $685. Compact cars, like the Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic, are fetching prices slightly lower, around the $644 mark on average. Pickup trucks, such as the Ford F-150, are on the high end, we’re offering about $795 for those. For sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and crossovers like the Ford Explorer or Toyota Highlander, the payment is pretty competitive, about $782, striking a balance in the pricing scale.

In the recent past, The Clunker Junker has bought a whopping 10,016 vehicles, pumping in excess of 7 million dollars into car owners pockets! Among the myriad of vehicles, the sedan that stands out in Maryland is the Honda Accord. This car, known for its fuel efficiency and comfortable ride, however, has a couple of common issues like transmission failure and brake wear that might become expensive to repair. Consequently, selling the car may be a more economical decision instead of incurring heavy costs for its upkeep and repairs.

Regarding the status of “cash for cars” market, it’s safe to say that in Maryland, prices have shown stability. The fluctuation rate is a negligible 0.5% monthly. This situation is reminiscent of last year’s trend, creating a sense of predictability in the pricing. Given this steady market pattern, it really is a sound time to get a good deal for your used car. Rest assured, I’ll continue to monitor the market shifts and keep you posted on the latest developments and trends. Your car’s value today could be your windfall tomorrow!
