## FAQs

**What is Residual Value?**

Residual Value is the estimated value of an asset at the end of its lease term or useful life. In the context of leasing, it's what the asset is expected to be worth by the time the lease expires.

**How does the Buyout Price differ from the Salvage Value?**

The Buyout Price is the cost to purchase an asset at the end of a lease, typically calculated by adding the residual value and any remaining payments. Salvage Value, on the other hand, is the estimated value of an asset at the end of its useful life, assuming it cannot be used for its intended purpose anymore but can still be sold for parts or scrap.

**Why is calculating the Buyout Price important?**

Calculating the Buyout Price is important for lessees to understand how much they would need to pay to purchase the leased asset at the end of the lease term. It helps in making informed financial decisions regarding the lease buyout.

**Can the Buyout Price change over the course of a lease?**

Yes, the Buyout Price can change over the course of a lease, especially if the residual value of the asset changes due to factors like market conditions, excessive wear and tear, or higher-than-expected mileage on a leased vehicle.
