Select the private party pricing radio button. Once you select the private party pricing option enter the condition of the vehicle. Once selected, a new screen appears with various pricing recommendations, ranging from vehicles in fair condition to vehicles in excellent condition. The pricing varies greatly based on the condition of the vehicle. Kelly Blue Book's website can be used to assess the value of both new and used vehicles. Current vehicle owners use Kelly Blue Book to determine the correct market selling price for their vehicles, and buyers looking to purchase a new or used vehicle use the site to ensure they are paying market price for their purchase. KBB.com also allows you to select the vehicle type a second way from the main screen simply by clicking on pictures of the vehicles. Both ways are correct and lead to the exact same result, which is a display of the private party value of the vehicle.
