13 Ways To Post Your Listings For Free

Money_computer

Reading Bernice Ross's "RealClues" - The Weekly Newsletter for Real Estate Professionals is a fantastic way to keep abreast of what's working for agents in the marketing world.  She has just started a 5 part series regarding the Inman Connect called: Hot Strategies from Real Estate Connect: The Ins and Out of On-Line Lead Generation. 

This week's article focus's on how to gain maximum exposure for your listings with the least amount of spend.  She mentions Postlets as a great source for its all-in-one-effort service.  I follow up with a few more, and invite you to chime in with any services you have found useful.

Check it out:


1-10 Postlets.com (update: Postlets has competition: VFlyer. And, Postlets lauches PostletsPlus)

The first 10 come in a neat little package called Postlets - "free classifieds creation and syndication"  Build your online flier once, and have it automatically post to:

Backpage.com
Craigslist.org
Edgeio.com
Google Base
HotPads.com
LiveDeal.com
Oodle.com
Propsmart.com
Vast.com
Trulia.com

11. Microsoft has an answer to Google Base: Windows Live Expo

In beta, and you'll need an MSN acct (of course).

12. PostYourProperty - Similar to Postlets, submitting all listings to several real estate classified sites.

This site is in major need of a makeover.  I almost threw up when I was probing it.  That's what you get when you've been collecting data since 1999, and never bothering to actually step back and look at your end result.

13. CityCribs - Limited but Growing

This was originally a New York City real estate posting site... but its popularity has grown nationwide.

Great info! I am registering right now for the Postlets. The only concern I have is in the Terms of Use, they mention that they will tag the end of your postings with an advertisement for their service.

Depending on how it comes across, I don't have any particular objection to this. For the time-saving involved, I'm willing to give it a shot. We'll see how it actually looks once they post.

Thanks for the link!

Juicy post indeed! If your readers want some more listing sites, many free, here's a basketful, with LINKS (the bias is New York, but some are nationwide)

Thanks for the info. Gee this web 2.0 stuff sure is fun.

You can post your listings free on Land.Net http://www.land.net Coverage is international.

Postlets works great for Residential, but needs major improvement on the Commercial listings. They have a Commercial category, but then require Bedrooms and Bathrooms be completed. I am hoping for an upgrade on the Commercial service ASAP.

(reprint of what I entered on our blog)

Sorry Brad, it’s (our upcoming upgrade) not related to commercial. The reason there are mandatory bedrooms for commerical listings is that, well, the service wasn’t designed to handle commercial properties. We later added the property type to accommodate a handful of requests we received, but haven’t been able to tailor the template to cleanly fit commercial requirements. We understand that commercial (along with land/lot) is a unique and distinct listing type that requires its own template and have put it on our long list of things to do. Since we work on postlets in our spare time (we have day jobs too), it takes us longer to implement ideas than it does to come up with them.

Haha, you spelled Trulia.com in your link, and it sends people somewhere else.

** Link fixed. Thanks John. **

Thank you for this detailed list. You are right - PostYourProperty made me get quite ill- like spinning around on a merry-go-round over and over after eating 3 pieces of Birthday cake. The other sites are pretty interesting tho.
