Marketing Homes on Craigslist

By
Real Estate Agent with Real Estate International, Inc. 013146

I have heard lately from many brokers that they have had great success from marketing
their llistings on Craigslist.  I am trying to post properties on there to see what kind of
response I will get.  Please share with me if you have any other success stories posting
your properties on other FREE listing websites.

Thank you so much.  Dagmar Sands

I sold an investment property last year to someone who saw the ad on Craigs List. 80% of the people who came to the open houses first saw the house on CL. Not one person came from seeing the ad in the LA Times. The rest of the open house visitors came from seeing open house signs on the street.

BTW, I used a REALTOR to list the house, and the buyer told her buyer's agent she wanted to see the house after seeing it on CL.

You can make very attractive postings on Craigs List using V-flyer. They look really nice, and stand out from the usual CL real estate ads.

I have had great results with rentals on Craig's list but not my properties for sale. V flyer is a great tool. I haven't posted Open Houses that is a great suggestion. Thanks

I can see how this is possible. I haven't used craiglist for listing of homes to be exact, but I have used it for other things and it shows to be a notable site. Other avenues are Myspace of course, Facebook, and just about any other online community you can find where people chat. The enitre internet world is about chatting and meeting friends, so basically any community you go to is gonna provide you with leads and clients looking for your services. The idea is to be on as many website communitites that you possibly can, that way you are dealing with a broad range of people. Even if someone doesn't want to buy, or can't, they may know someone who can.

Hmmmmmmmmm, Craigslist is the way to go it seems.  I am going to experiment with some ideas I have to market myself. Thanks everyone for the input.
