Over the past few months we have been going over a lot of tips and tricks to get your Craigslist.org postings for your new homes looking perfect but now we need to go over how to maintain those perfect postings.
NewHomesDirectory.com lists 700-1,000 postings a week on Craigslist and we are still growing. The Craigslist crew here at NHD daily check each posting to make sure that they live up to the high standards we have before they are live for all the world to see. When we check them we make sure that the follow items are always accurate: price, picture and correct community/other home information such as square footage, bath count, HOA information etc. within the description.
There are always certain things that we sometimes overlook when we get into the routine even though they may seem like common sense. Make sure you check your spelling, grammar, whether the content is appropriate for your target audience, as well as length of posting. A long or wordy posting can make buyers run away rather than want to buy.
Lastly, we make sure to change around the look of the postings very frequently because after awhile those who are looking for a new home on Craigslist will start to recognize the same posting and thus it will get flagged. Depending on how many posts you maintain, you should change the wording and/or layout every other week.
In the words of W. Clement Stone “Success is achieved and maintained by those who try and keep trying.”
