ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Joe Verde Sales & Management Training, Inc., today announced that, according to an online survey of auto salespeople conducted throughout 2013, the most common car buying objection before the salesperson has a commitment is, "I'll think it over and get back to you," at 37 percent. After the salesperson has a commitment and is negotiating, there are three most common objections: Again, at the top is "I'll think it over and get back to you," at 20 percent, but this is equal with "payments are too high," also at 20 percent, followed closely behind by "not enough for my trade," at 19 percent.

The same survey questions were posted on the site in 2012 and 156 people responded to each. The top response to the question, "What is your most common car buying objection today before you have a commitment?" was again, "I'll think it over and get back to you." However, the response was almost double at 38 percent.

The question "What is your most common objection from car buyers today after you have a commitment and are negotiating?" had slightly different responses in 2012 versus 2013.

The top response was "Not enough for my trade," at 23 percent; followed by "Payments are too high," at 19 percent; and "The price is too high," at 17 percent. "I'll think it over and get back to you," was in 4th place at 15 percent.

Commenting on the results, Joe Verde, president of Joe Verde Sales & Management Training, Inc., stated: "People tell you 'No' a lot when you're closing. They're nervous about spending 20 or 30 grand, and they didn't know you, like you or trust you an hour ago. So saying 'Yes' in just an hour means really going out on a limb for most customers. That's why you have to make it as easy as possible for them to agree to purchase. If you close correctly, you'll never ask the standard, 'Will you buy today,' question. Not only that, your negotiation will be about helping them fit this new vehicle they love into their budget, instead of whether you can 'make them a deal today.'"
