@Lori... Like any other place (including Trulia) there are always a few that want to use it for the wrong purpose. Nonetheless, I am finding it a good place to discuss and our agents are finding Craigslist and other sites a great place to prospect.
Afterall..if you're on-line, you're missing a good chunck of the buyers currently looking.
The newspaper is usually a bust. I have never had someone come by that says they saw the ad in the paper. For broker open houses, you just have to feed them. For consumers, signs get the most attention then posting the open house on different sites. If i am able, I can send a notice around the neighborhood first. So far, I've had neighbors come in this hour but that's ok - they wanted to see what the sellers have done and are suprised at how great it looks. Maybe one of them will tell someone..all it takes is one buyer at the end of the day. I'm trying a Sat this time, I'll try a Sunday next.
What are the types of advertising that works for others?
