Craigslist in my opinion has become the home of Desperate Agents and Shady Middle Men who basically post properties they have no business posting. Try going on Craigslist and searching for bank owned homes. You will either find ridiculous ads stating
"90% OFF OF MARKET VALUE" "Click Here" - These will come up in groups of 10 - 20 at a time, obviously one shady company with 10 - 20 different email accounts (so they wont get marked duplicate ads) and they always take you to a site costing $30-40 a month just to look at their inventory
"Great Bank Owned Home, Please no agents contact" - This means its most likely a buyers agent posting homes they have no right to post. They never give an address, and always want you to prove your life story before giving you any info.
Or check out this posting " http://sandiego.craigslist.org/rfs/415391796.html " - Has absolutely no business being on craigslist!!!
My point is craigslist is no longer a good source for finding quality properties, or for quality advertising, or maybe it never was to begin with! But all I know is 3 years ago I could post a property for Sale that one of my agents in my office had and get quality responses, now I post a true undermarket property and it gets FLAGGED because other buyers and sellers agents and middle people dont want legit ads, because it takes away from the b.s. they post everyday.
Does anyone else notice these problems??? You post a quality ad and in 5 minutes its buried under 10 ads for 90% off market value b.s. ads on page 3?? Craigslist needs to come up with a system where they verify the person posting the property is either the seller or the sellers agent! Let me know problems youve had! And sites that work for posting legit properties and getting legit responses.
