Bob’s Market Message

December 11, 2017

2017 has seemed like a blur – and the blur is almost over! Two more selling weeks for us and 2017 will be in the history books.

DAA Seattle is in growth mode. Consignment, dealer attendance, and sales percentages have all been on the rise. Dave Blake and the entire team are doing a fantastic job and the market is responding. Last week’s sale offered 850 units and a strong 54% conversation rate.

Speaking of growth, American Honda is returning home to DAA Seattle for 2018 with its first offering on Friday, January 5th. We’re proud to be American Honda’s remarketing partner for the Pacific Northwest once again.

This week’s Holiday Sale at DAA Northwest in Spokane will be a big one. With 3500 units in two days, both fleet and dealer sellers are primed and ready to move inventory prior to the New Year. For buyers, this is a huge opportunity to stock up and take advantage of reasonable prices that most certainly will not be around after the New Year. Truck inventories seem good right now, and one could say there is even a surplus, but the supply chain is drying up and a shortage is eminent in the first quarter of next year. These prices and this selection won’t last … I promise.

We hope to see you in Spokane and in Seattle this week!
