I have a question...

I couldn't quite find where to post this question, so I'll try here, I was going to post it in the buy/sell forum but I'm not buying or selling anything on there, just a general question...

Have any of you sold your car before? As in "For Sale By Owner"?
I'm trying to do it myself right now, however I can't find the definite answer for titling, or "signing over the title". I looked on the web and found guides on "howstuffworks.com" and edmunds, etc... they are very brief about the specific topic.

Ofcourse I have my title, but when I finalize the sale, sign the Bill of Sales form, what exactly am I to do for "signing over the title"?? What process is involved? Do I just write a document saying that the car is to be theres or what?

I bought the car in Ohio but I'm selling in Virginia. I tried calling the DMV and you know how it is, always on hold or ringing.

I was just wondering if any of you had first hand experience about this ordeal. haha, sorry for asking such a noob question, but its just not clear to me what I am to do with the titling. thanks.

I have a question...

Is the car still being financed? I sold my previous car and actually had the "title" and right on the back of it there was a spot to write it all out- the new owner would then have to take it to the DMV to register the car in their name. IF the car is/was being financed then you do not have the title. In order to actually get the title you would have to pay the bank or whoever is holding it and only then would they be able to give the title to you.

Yeah, the car is paid off and I do have the title.

haha, ok, yeah I see it now. On the back of the title(was stored in file) It appears to have the release or sign over to new owner. Thanks.

Appreciate it.
