Old School Tips to Generate Real Estate Leads on Craigslist

Everyone knows about Craigslist as the place where you can buy literally anything. Its easy free, and gets tons of consumer traffic. I have been using this platform to sell real estate for years now and have had some good success with sales through it. In this article I will teach you how I have used it and how I really got my start in real estate through using Craigslist to make up to $ 10,000 a month.

Step one: You need listings to post. What I did was search my local MLS service to find the homes I wanted to sell like property property, first time home buyer property and so on. (Tip: pick lower end homes as nobody buys luxury homes off Craigslist). When I found the homes I rolled everything from my brokerage to see who the listing agent was so I could ask permission. Most agents do not care, especially agents with 80-90 listings at a time, but its always good to ask.

Step two: Post the houses. You can use flyer services like V flyer or postlets to create flyers to post with your info if you want, but I have had the best luck not using these. All I do is copy and paste the marketing notes. Put the address and price in the relative areas with a catchy title. (Tip: use the same title format in all of your titles so you will start to be known by browsers for your angle like investment of first time buyer ** MINE WAS ALWAYS LIKE THIS **). The reason I do not use flyers is my posts are missing important information about the property and only has for pictures which gives the consumer a need to call if interested. At the bottom of the description I just have name phone number and DRE # with broker name. I also place a link to my site or a Google form which will be discussed in another article.

Step three: ANSWER THE PHONE! You need to answer the phone and respond immediately to capture any buyers. Nowadays they will have been through 5 other postings if you wait 5 minutes, and they will have forgotten about your house. (Tip: post 3 times a week so your postings are staggered like Monday Wednesday Friday. And do about 20-30 postings at a time. just surf and call from their work).

That's it! Simple and fast plus it works! Just repost every 7 days and keep adding new homes when other homes go pending. I hope these tips brought you as much success as it bought me.
