To help consumers get the best deal possible, Leasehackr is introducing Rate Findr, a first-of-a-kind tool for consumers to look up lease and finance programs from the same source that dealers use to desk a deal.
What is it?
Rate Findr gives consumers access to complete lender data previously not available to the general public, including:
Lease program data. Instantly look up the current residual value, money factor, and incentives (including stackability) offered by captive lenders for virtually every car model based on location.
Finance program data. Find standard and subvented finance rates, incentives (including stackability), and unpublished offers from captive lenders and OEMs.
Cash program data. Incentives offered by OEMs for cash purchases and non-captive finance.
Canadian data. Find lease and finance program data for the Canadian market.
Why are we doing this?
Since our founding in 2015, we have observed the difficulty of finding current and accurate information on residual values, rates, and incentives – even though that data is essential to negotiating a fair deal. Leasehackr’s goal is to make information more accessible to the consumer, hence the creation of Rate Findr.
We also pride ourselves in keeping our editorial independence and unique, community-led hackr culture. To that end, Rate Findr is made possible by donations from our sustaining Super Supporters, who helped crowdfund the development of this tool and the ongoing cost to procure the data. Rate Findr is an investment into our community that will help members unearth deals and make informed decisions.
With a complete dataset now in our toolbox, we hope to develop more useful tools in collaboration with our @tech_crew members, making Leasehackr truly a platform built by the community for the community.
How do I access the tool?
Note that Rate Findr is not for commercial use. Please contact us if you intend to use it for business purposes.
