6 Reasons 2013 Could Be a Buyers Market

Despite the fear of higher federal taxes this year due to the deal struck by Congress to slow down the Fiscal Cliff, there is hope on the financial horizon of 2013. According to reports on CNN Money, you might not need to be afraid of the number 13. There are 6 prices they expect to see reduced this coming year.

Used Cars

Due to an expected increase in lease terminations, an estimated 500,000 extra cars will be added to the market leases expiring. That kind of increase in supply will surely drive the demand down, meaning that prices will also drop by several hundred dollars. If you’re looking for a nice used car, 13 might be your lucky number.

Gas Prices

According to the Department of Energy, gas prices are expected to drop on average by 20 cents on the gallon. They should drop from $3.63 in 2012 to $3.43 in 2013.


Intel wants their Ultrabook touch laptops to dominate the industry. They said it would last year and saw none of the expected domination. Part of their marketing plan this year is to significantly drop their selling price so they can see that dream come true. You could see prices drop from more than a grand to just $600 by the end of the year.

Travel Packages

If you want to vacation this year, purchase a package. Booking a hotel and airfare together can help make the trip more affordable for you. Depending on the length and destination of your trip, you could save anywhere between hundreds of dollars, to thousands. See what travel packages are coming your way this year.
