Is Your Property Posted on Craigslist?

filed under: For Sellers posted on February 9th, 2011

Lots has been written and said about “craigslist” and so it’s not too much of a surprise that home and condo sellers in Cincinnati, West Chester, Mason and Fairfield are putting real estate information on the site.

Why wouldn’t any seller or agent take advantage of posting “for sale” information on  “craigslist”.  It’s free and easily accessed by anybody.  I checked today and there were 1000 listings for houses/condos in Cincinnati posted by both real estate brokers and for sale by owners.  Most of the listings include a picture of the property.

However it’s important to remember “buyer beware” -because nobody is policing the site for accuracy.  I was quite delighted to find the 2nd listing on the page for Cincinnati had an ocean view!

Guess I missed ever seening the ocean in the metropolitan Cincinnati  area when listing properties…

So be sure to take advantage of all the web sites to post information about your listing but remember some of the sites may be more reliable than others.  Our local MLS (Multiple Listing of Greater Cincinnati) holds its members to a set of standards about listing information.  And once the MLS has our data  they “pass it along” to other users -local real estate companies and Realtor.com.  And because of the unique way craigslist obtains information- nobody is policing the accuracy of the information.
