Facebook and Craigslist

How do I post my property on Craigslist?  

Craigslist.org can generate a lot of additional exposure for your property. You can use the tool in your Selling Center to post your listing on Craigslist, complete with your photos, description, and a link to your listing.

After you login to your Selling Center, follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to Craigslist.org, select your city, then select "Real Estate for Sale."
  2. Click on Post in the top right corner of the page. Follow the remaining prompts until you get to the "Create Post" page. Complete the form with your Price, Posting Title, and Location.
  3. Return to your Selling Center on ForSaleByOwner.com, and copy and paste the code provided for you into the "Posting Description" box in the Craigslist form.
  4. Check your e-mail and follow the link provided to complete the rest of the Craigslist process.
Voila! You're done. You posting should appear as a full color ad, complete with pictures and all of your property info. If it doesn't, repeat the process again. If your issues persist, feel free to call customer service at 888-367-7253.

Please Note: If you make any edits to the content of your ForSaleByOwner.com ad, you'll also have to update your ad on Craigslist with the code above. Craigslist ads expire every seven days. For maximum exposure, we recommend repeating this process every seven days.

 

How can I share my property with family and friends on Facebook?

I don’t have a free Facebook account. How do I get one?  

Facebook is one of the world’s most popular social networking web sites, making it an ideal place to advertise your “For Sale By Owner” property. With more than 50 million users, having your property posted on Facebook greatly increases the chances that it will sell quickly.

Don’t think you know anyone on Facebook? Give it a try. You are likely to find several people that you know in your area. Even if you do not know any users personally, you can join a group for your city or neighborhood and quickly start your network.

If you don’t want to create a Facebook account, don’t worry, we will still add your listing to the Cribfinder application on Facebook, but you will not be able to view your listing or share it with other Facebook users.
