The real estate section of http://www.craigslist.org/has become inundated with listings of builder spec homes. A new trend of posting a builders spec homes on Craigslist is taking over the Arizona real estate section.
A Realtor can go out to most any builder get a list of their current spec homes, along with the keys and a camera, take some pictures and then post these as listings on Craigslist. I think it is a good idea, however, there are now so many realtors posting these spec homes that you see the same home multiple times.
I think this is a smart way of attracting new home buyers and getting a potentially large commission from one of the many new home builders offering larger than normal commissions.
There are so many online methods of getting in front of potential buyers now I think craigslist is a great way of marketing your clients properties or spec homes.
