How to sell & buy cars in Forza Horizon 5 and getting the best price, is somewhat of an art form. Much of this comes down to the auction house feature. It allows you to offload cars you don’t want while finding rare ones for bargain prices. Unfortunately, a change privacy settings fix can be required for access. Read on as we discuss how to buy and sell cars in Forza Horizon 5.
How to Sell Cars in Forza Horizon 5
In your car’s menu tab, you should have an option to ‘buy new and used cars.’ From here, you will be able to access the auction house. Set an opening bid, the duration of the auction and a buyout price. The buy it price works like the buy now tab on eBay. Once someone hits that price, the item is automatically sold.
You cannot retract auctions. Even if someone has put in the minimum bid, when the time ends, that is what it will sell for. It is worth noting that you cannot sell barn finds on the auction house. For all the best barn finds and their locations, visit our barn find guide here.

Buying cars is like selling. Go to a Horizon Festival Outpost. From here, you can locate the buy and sell option at the top of the screen. You will then get the option to buy via the auto show or go to the auction.
All you then need to do is find the car you want and buy or set a bid. Currently, the game is experiencing some lag which can prove troublesome. You may find it means you get outbid at the last minute.
Auction House Not Working – Change Privacy Settings
If the auction option is in grey and unavailable, it will be a problem with your privacy settings. As auctioning requires a form of communication, it may come down to either privacy or parental settings. Head to your privacy settings and change all settings to everyone or allow.
How to Get the Best Price for Your Car in Forza Horizon 5 Auction House
People sell cars for large amounts on Forza. Like any market, part of this is supply and demand. This is something you have very little influence over.
Something you do have is the ability to upgrade with legendary painters and tuners. If you hit level 20 in either discipline, you become a master. However, to do this you have to get lots of people downloading your wraps and tuning sets.
Another option is to get hold of non-buyable cars. Hold onto them until they are no longer available in the game. This makes them very rare and increases demand.
