Using craigslist to find deals

6 Replies

hi @Larry Smet  we market to all 3/2 for sale by owner in the areas we are interested in and also to for rent areas we are interested in

i have gotten good response from the ads but so far only bought 1 rental off of them 

good luck


This is great - thanks to you all!

@Mark Brogan - are you posting ads to craigslist targeting FSBOs or only responding to posted ads for 3/2s?  It wasn't completely clear to me...

@Joseph Ball   - I haven't come across that service - it looks great.  Could I trouble you for an example of how you use this in this context (if it sees a keyword in a craiglist ad then it emails you a link or something like that)?  I'll definitely look into this further

@Dawn Anastasi   - thanks for keeping my hopes up!  :)   What search terms do you use?
