I use it to promote listings. It does generate traffic at Open Houses.
It also genrates lots of spam. I do not respond to emails from Craig's List unless there is a name and number.
Please be careful as these contacts could be anyone.
Yes it is, you can get a good traffic from Craigslist, but the question is craigslist flagging and deleting a lot of ads. So if your ads are marked or deleted, you can use a professional service publication craigslist ad. For more details visit the page http://clpostingpros.com/

It seems to work great for rentals. From what I hear from my colleagues. I personally would not post a property for sale on or advertise myself on Craigslist. Plenty of people are skeptical.
The changes with the HTML have been a bummer ... Circlepix tours had a very easy and attractive way to quickly post (Market Leader's was ok at best). Now they are looking for a workaround.
Recently, they even removed the ability to make raw links clickable. Now people have to copy/paste any link you put in there if they want to get access to the info.
On the other hand, if you put something up there that really peeks their interest and they are willing to copy/paste the raw link to get access to the info, that might just mean that they are a little more serious than the average CL browser. Just a little though...not a night-and-day difference in seriousness-of-intent.
It's worked for us when we're looking to attract new real estate agents. We just post a short ad on a weekly basis. Sure, we've been contacted by several vendors wanting to sell us services, but it's not been that big of deal. Two agents joined us during the past 2 weeks from these ads.
We also post upcoming bank listings before they hit the market. That has also been very successful.
It's becoming crowded recently in our area, but we continue to post as it's free :-)
