I used three craigslist account and posted 7 ads in total (I have 9 vacant units in my park). However, after 3 weeks of renewing of the ads, I got no more than 6 phone calls/emails. At the same time, another owner whose park is close to mine get 8 calls a day.
There are a few things to my disadvantage:
- I also post ads for single families, apartments in another city through these accounts.
- I am not local.
I asked my wife to post ads from her craigslist account and we are getting 6 calls yesterday. My ads look much better than hers.
Looks like where you live vs where your advertised does not matter because my wife’s ads work.
I still want to figure out what I can do to make my ads work. Any suggestion? I am not thrilled about craigslist but unfortunately it is the main vehicle for park people to find their mobile home.
