Auto Dealers Expect Sales Growth In 2013, Chase Auto Finance Survey Finds

Help WantedMore than 60 percent of dealers are likely to expand their inventory in the next six months. As dealerships expand, they also expect to create more jobs. Of the more than three in five (62 percent) of dealers who say they are “very” or “somewhat” likely to expand their payrolls in 2013:

  • More than a third (35 percent) say they expect to hire three to five full-time employees this year;
  • Nearly three in ten (28 percent) expect to hire more than six employees; and
  • Twenty-eight percent expect to hire one or two employees.

While dealers are looking to hire and expand inventories, they are less likely to seek financing to fund their expansion plans. More than six in ten dealers (65 percent) say they are “somewhat” or “very” unlikely to seek financing. Of the 27 percent who will seek financing to increase their floorplans, one in four (29 percent) will expand their dealerships or remodel their existing facilities.
