It depends 100% on the price of the car, its condition and “what's next"..
For example, it is much more difficult to sell a used car worth $ 40,000 than a used car worth $ 5,000 (because there are much fewer buyers in the market for used cars worth $ 40,000).
It also depends on the condition of the car. A car in almost perfect condition (mechanical and cosmetic) is much easier to sell to a private person than a car with good wear and tear.
Finally, it depends on which car you are going to buy next, if any. Trading a used car as part of a lease or purchase of a new car can be worthwhile. Many car manufacturers offer incentives either to keep customers on their brand or to steal market share from a competitor.
