What Is a Lease Buyout?

documents being prepared for a lease buy out

What is a lease buyout, and when it is a good option for Xenia drivers? A lease buyout is when you purchase your leased car, either at the end of the lease term (lease-end buyout) or before (early lease buyout). So, how does a lease buyout work? Below, join Key Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT for a detailed lease buyout definition. We’ll also compare the benefits of early- vs. lease-end car lease buyouts to help you decide what works for you.



Lease-End Buyout

This type of car lease buyout is the most popular option with Beavercreek drivers. How does a lease buyout work when you wait till the end of your lease term to purchase your leased vehicle? It’s simple: you pay the difference between what you’ve already paid in lease payments, and the vehicle’s estimated value at lease-end — and it’s yours! Lease-end buyout is a good choice if:

  • You’re happy with your car, and there’s no other similarly-priced model you’d rather drive.
  • Your car hasn’t required any major repairs or services.
  • You’re able to obtain a low interest rate to finance the buyout price.

Early Lease Buyout

Buying out your lease is a bit like buying a used car — except you know everything there is to know about the vehicle’s condition and history! That’s true whether you buy your leased vehicle at lease-end or earlier. So, what is a lease buyout called when you buy your leased vehicle before your lease term is up? That’s early lease buyout — and while it’s less popular with Springfield drivers than a lease-end buyout, it may be the right choice for you if:

  • You’re concerned about lease penalties for exceeding mileage limits or not maintaining scheduled services like tire rotations and oil changes.
  • Your car has sustained exterior or interior damage that may also bring lease penalties.
  • Your vehicle has depreciated quickly and is now worth less than market value.
