Have you ever tried to sell your Syracuse NY home on Craigslist?

The topic of Craigslist has several differing opinions.

Some people believe it is useless due to the amount of competition and difficulty to stand out.

While others believe it is a fantastic tool to help gain exposure and find a buyer for your home.

Typically Craigslist is utilized by homeowners who are looking to sell their property by themselves or (for sale by owner).

Homeowners may try to sell their property on their own for several reasons, including:
