I stopped using this many years ago as they were the lowest quality leads out of every lead source I had tried. However, that may be for my industry.
rentals only... Putting listing on craigslist can be dangerous as people make it a faked rental ad.....
John I am glad you asked this quesiton. I haven't used Craiglist in my marketing plan, but I have been considering it. I am glad to read the different responses so far. They will help me in my decision to use or not to use Craiglist in my marketing. Thank you for askng the question!
I was never a fan of Craig's list but most agents seem to be.... we are listing agents, and that's not where homeowners search for a listing agent....they Google many different keyword phrases....and I use all of them on many platforms....never craig's list...

I dont use Craigs list as there has been too many scams. Real buyers are not looking there first.
Sandy Padula and Norm...
I don't use Craig's List or any other classified ad site. Used to, but never got anything out of it.
Good morning John. We market all the home we flip on Craig's List. It has served us very well and is the only online advertising we do.
Good Sunday morning John. No, I do not use Craig's list or online classifieds. My main source of referrals come from satisfied real estate agents.
John - I have never tried Craigslist, and have not really used any other online classified site for marketing.
I don't use it and won't go near it. I've heard too many horror stories about it.
nope, don't use it at all anymore. my data was often scraped and used for fake rental ads. I just got tired of it.
I do use it, but for listings it hasn't brought more than a handful of links to my website. For my rentals, I find all my tenants there. Great resource!
No I do not like Craigslist and having my listings hijacked. It takes way too much time and for me doesn't produce quality results. I post on several of my personal websites and they work well.
I have never had any results with Craigslist. So not it's not a part of my marketing plan.
Not a player in any way. No to on line ads as well.
Craigslist isn't really on my radar screen because in this area it has been the site of many real estate scams. I've stopped using it.
No and No.
Some agents in the local area use CraigsList on a regular basis.
Yes, I use Craigslist successfully.
However, i do not use it to advertise listings.
No, it doesn't seem to work well in this area. But for rentals closer to city it sometimes works to generate some interest.
Have never used it. Spoken wiith some who get good results and some who are less than pleased.
I have before but seems the past couple months my craigslist ads don't produce calls or clicks.
I use Craigslist
I don't use craigslist that much.

Great answers you got.
Just for rentals.
I used craigslist before they disabled the listing links within the ad and I got many leads, now it's dead end street for me.
I don't use online advertising. Referrals from past clients are better.
I have not used it and am interested in all the answers here.
I have not used Craigslist very often, but have heard great stories from others.
I use it for rentals. I don't use it for my listings as there are too many scammers online.
John Novak I used to use Craigslist, but I don't believe it was very effective. I stopped using it.
I used to, but then I had a vacant small condo where a stalker called me, and kept calling and talking profanity. That was the last time - several years ago.
John -- I haven't used Craigslist or any other online classified sites. CL definitely has a reputation for mis-information.
Yes it is. I use everything I can think of to gain exposure to my listings. Just the fact that it may bring a Buyer is good enough for me. The price to list on Craigs list is right(free) so all I lose is a little time. I did sell some raw land via a Craigs list ad..
It doesn't fit my marketing plan. I have sold office furniture on it but because of the openness of Craig's List and some violence that has happened with meeting people who you have not vetted, I met them at the office during the day.
