Spec Homes on Craigslist

By
Real Estate Agent with J. Roberts & Company

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.

I've had a fair amount of activity from Craig's List.  It is definitely worth posting there!

I have gotten a decent amount of leads for both buyers and renters using Craigslist.  Best of all, it is free to use.

Matthew thanks for the tip about Craigslist being hot.

We offer a pretty good, FREE destination to post spec homes and home builder inventory too!

Give us a look, and let me know if you have any questions...
