Rentals on Craigslist

Yes, Craigslist has been around for a while, and even though it’s receive a bad reputation for certain listings, it’s easily one of the best sources for finding rentals in your area. It’s also great for finding Milford CT real estate.

So when you’re searching for rentals in the area, simply go to Craigslist and check out the various listings. You can narrow down rentals by the monthly rent, the number of bedrooms needed, and the location as well. Only go for the rentals that have images in the listings, as there’s a chance that a listing without pictures could be a scam of sorts. It’s better to be safe than sorry. You’ll also be in a safer position to find a rental listed by a Realtor, but not too many Realtors do that. If you can’t find Realtor-listed rentals, don’t fret.

What about if you’re an owner of Milford CT real estate and want to rent out your property? Craigslist is the best place to advertise your rental. From my personal experience, if you consistently list your rental along with calls to action pointing to your contact information on top of nice images and even a video, you’re bound to get several calls or emails a day. As long as you have a good property to rent out, you should not have a problem finding a renter.

However, listing Milford CT homes for sale on this site is a different ball game. Don’t expect the same surge of leads as compared to rental listings. Buyers are less likely to resort to Craigslist for browsing, as a lot of home listings don’t have images. This is mostly due to the fact that a lot of Realtors don’t know how to upload images or utilize the HTML web coding language to embed images in their lisitngs.
