3 Platforms to Sell Your House for Less than the Cost of a Newspaper Ad

Real Estate Agent

Selling a property doesn't always have to be complicated. When you want to sell your property, one of the first things you do is to take the help of a top real estate agent in your area. Though it may end up being a good strategy, you'll often have to pay a commission. Also, the real estate agent's time will be split between different properties and buyers and you may not get all the attention you need.

A better option is to do it all by yourself or at least do your own marketing besides what the real estate agent does, in order to boost the chances of selling your property quickly. Now, when you think of marketing, huge costs is what comes right to your mind. It doesn't always have to be the case. Here are a few platforms and websites like eBay that can list your property ad and maybe even help you sell it for a price that's less than the cost of a newspaper ad.


Amazon is one of the most popular sites for sellers and it caters to a huge audience as well. The listing price is also nominal when compared to eBay. Besides the high traffic volume, Amazon also offers excellent support to sellers. In addition, you don't really have to market your product as Amazon is popular enough by itself.


Another major player when it comes to listing ads is Craigslist. This classified platform has a simple interface and there is nothing you can't understand or do on it. The best part about Craigslist is there are no fees for listing and it offers high levels of transparency in operations. You create an account, post your ad, and wait for prospective buyers to reach you - it's really that simple.


An upcoming place for posting ads is TrueGether. It is similar to eBay in many ways, but it is also much cheaper. A good user interface coupled with easy navigation options makes this platform an attractive option to place your real estate ad. It even integrates well with popular social media platforms to increase your leverage and to reach out to your friends and contacts easily.

In fact, you can say that TrueGether is the cheapest marketplace out there today and at the same time, a powerful one. Though it entered this market only in 2012, the phenomenal growth it has seen over the last seven years is a testimony to its offering.

After listing your property on any of these sites, you can even promote it directly on social media. It is also a good idea to add a few pictures to give an idea for prospective buyers about the property you want to sell.

In all, you can sell your property with just a little bit of your time and money without always having to go through a real estate agent. Listing on the above platforms is a good marketing strategy as it can give you the necessary reach.
