We've all had problems with this to some extent. What is your take on this cList "problem" ?


Where I live craigslist does not really cover my geographic area at all. But I have similar problems selling on Facebook and other venues. I typically just have people meet at my house. (Very small realtively quiet community). I usually don't give out my address though until they text me to say they are on their way to pick it up, that way I do not give my address out to flakes. Worked pretty well so far, if we arrange for a time and they don't text, I lost a sell that night but hey at least they don't have my address.

i know some people are super hesitant to give out their phone number, i think its kinda silly but if you have that problem use a call text app or the burner app. talking on the phone your going to get more serious buyers. it takes 2 seconds to shoot someone a lowball offer or say ill come see it at 5 talking to soemone people feel worse about blowing you off as its a more personal correspondence.

also i have people meet me at a school 3 blocks from my house. i dont show up at the time we agree i tell them to call me when they get there. if they never show up who cares i didnt waste any of my time
