What Makes a Good Craigslist Listing?
There are some important things to include in a Craigslist ad so you have the best chance of selling your house.
First is to write a good description. Include details about your home that make it special and let potential buyers know about any improvements you have made to the property.
Make sure you include all the relevant details about the property in your Craigslist listing buyers want to know. This will save you from answering a ton of questions.
Tell people about the parking and laundry situation, and the yard. Use keywords you think people might search for when looking for a home.
Next, include at least four (or more) quality photos, taken in a good light, and showing different areas of the home.
These photos should be clear, bright, and in focus. Be sure to show both inside and outside areas of the property. The best time to take photos is midday when the sun is not super bright. You want to make sure things don’t look dark but also don’t have a glare.
Another important thing to include in your ad is a way for potential buyers to contact you! Unless you want your phone ringing constantly, the best advice is to include your email address (and not your phone number) in the ad.
This way, people can contact you whenever they want, but you won’t be bothered by midnight phone calls.
Once you create your ad, you will want to renew it as frequently as allowed so it always appears at the top of searches.
