Wait for qbrozen to give his number, but I'm going to take a stab and say you'll get $22K on the trade.

With the NAV, I think $22k would probably be a first offer. I think you could push for more than that. $22,500 should be doable, and maybe even $23k to the right dealer.
Retail? Well, probably not worth it, IMHO. You'd have to sell for $25k to entice anyone to deal with you rather than a dealer, and considering Nevada offers a tax credit on trades, you are talking about an effective trade value of $24,610-$24,840 (tax varies throughout nevada apparently). So I'd just trade it, personally.

Without the crazy used car market, these bring insanely high prices. Is it really worth it to buy used? Lets say he gets $23K for it. Honda dealer slaps a CPO on it & puts it on the lot for what? $26,500? That's literally the same price of a new one (sans the NAV).
#43611 of 44377 18k undermileage on lease: how best to handle this "equity"?
Apr 01, 2013 (5:42 pm)
Due to a change in family circumstance my primary driver became a "second" car and as a result, I'll have used just about half of the allotted 36k mileage.when the term comes to an end later this month.
Is there substantial value to this mileage, as simple as multiplying this 18k remainder times what the overage would have cost (15 or 20 cents a mile)? This comes out to be a couple of grand which when added to the residual seems way high.
Does anyone have any experience with how dealers might credit this towards the new lease... is appraisal first by an entity like Carmax the way to go?
Our intent is to re-lease the same, current model car (now becoming our primary driver) though not necessarily through the previous dealer.
Any thoughts most appreciated

Can't speak for everyone, but you need to post specifically about the vehicle you want some feedback on.
You can use the template at the bottom of the screen.
That would be a good start.

Give us the specifics and we'll give you an idea. What you are going to do is trade the car in like you own it. Most likely it will be worth more than the lease buyout. Get a number from carmax, a buy bid from a dealer and a trade number from the dealer you want to buy from.

Thanks explorerx4 and nyccarguy for the quick responses... I overlooked the template at the bottom of the page.
Nearest Metro: Trenton, NJ
Year/Make/Model: 2010 Honda Accord LX Sedan Auto (4 cylinder base model)
Exterior has nothing of note (finish has consistent shine) other than front bumper has enough lower scraping/damage (parking curbs) to warrant replacement (confirmed with Honda Finance this falls under their $1500 wear 'n tear allowance: part #60210-TA0-A90ZZ $350 retail + paint/installation). Interior is in excellent appearance after detailing.
Tires - Original 18k+ with rotations/no substantial edge wear/good to go!
Maintenance - All factory required maintenance documented
Thank you for consideration

Well, you've got yourself round about a $15k trade-in. So what is the buyout?
