OK, it has been proven, that adding your listings to Craigslist.com helps expose your properties to potential buyers. So why is it that only some real estate agents add their listings to Craigslist.com?
Craigslist.com is one of the most effective promotional tools that a Realtor can use when promoting their listings on the internet. Now, a website plays a key part in this as Craigslist.com only allows you to add 4 photos and some content about your listing. The power of their system is that you can hyperlink that post directly to your website. (And, as an added bonus, if you are using an Ubertor website, it can direct traffic right to that specific listing using the unique URL system that is built into our software - example: http://www.andrewhasman.com/11 - see how it takes you right to that listing and not to the home page - every listing on your website has a unique URL)
So, we all agree that Craigslist.com is a great tool! (one that is not to be abused)
Why don't more real estate agents use it? too much work?
Well, if you are using our Ubertor software, check out the "craigslist" tab within your listings for more information on how we can help you add your listings to Craigslist.com quickly and easily.
And, if you don't know what I'm talking about, take a look at Craigslist.com and click "real estate for sale" as it will give you a better understanding of their system.
If I can leave you with one lesson for this blog.....
Add your listings to Craigslist.com but be sure to respect their rules and restrictions. Abuse it and you will end up paying for it.
