Bob’s Market Message

July 31, 2015

The last taillights of July 2015 went out the door today at DAA Seattle. It was a big month for us, headlined by the Rock & Roll Sale in Spokane. DAA Seattle also had a great month finishing July with our Seafair Sale – over 850 units consigned and well over 400 sold.

DAA Seattle is rolling and continuing to gain momentum each week in the Puget Sound area market.
Business on the street seems to have cooled a bit in the past 10 days or so. This is not unusual for this time of year and is always temporary as vacations finish up and folks get back to looking for that shiny new ride again.

Volumes for us are up at all our sale facilities. The trade and older, rougher car market has gotten tougher. These units have to be really cheap to attract attention in the lanes right now.

Nice trucks continue to lead the way. Late model cars are selling pretty well, but the small fuel efficient, or hybrid/electric units are relatively soft right now.
All in all, the market is stable, inventory is plentiful, prices are reasonable, and the future looks bright.

Thank you for a record Rock & Roll Sale – we hope you enjoyed the show. HEART was fantastic and the sale wasn’t bad either.

We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and look forward to seeing you in the lanes next week.
