06/10/2020 | Jonathan Smoke's Remarketing Strategy - June 2020 - Strong Rebound in Wholesale Prices After Historic Fall in April

Wholesale used vehicle prices (on a mix-, mileage-, and seasonally adjusted basis) increased 8.96% month-over-month in May. This brought the Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index to 137.0, a 1.9% decrease from a year ago. Manheim Market Report (MMR) prices improved over the last four weeks resulting in a 5.1% cumulative increase on the Three-Year-Old Index. MMR Retention, which is the average difference in price relative to current MMR, was greater than 100% in all but three days in May and averaged 101.7% for the month. The MMR Retention trend reflected that vehicles were selling above current MMR values and was a clear reversal of what happened in late March and April.
