Estate Agents Tip: How I make SIX FIGURES from posting Real Estate listings on Craigslist



Without exaggeration, my entire business has been built around meeting clients from lease listings I’ve posted on Craigslist. Over 90% of my business has, in some form or other, originated from Craigslist – either by meeting someone who’s directly called me from the site, or referred to me by someone I’ve met from Craigslist. This quickly turned into a six-figure per year income from continuous Craigslist leads and referral business. Here’s how I did it.

Learn how to make money as a Real Estate Agent, build your network of clients, and the exact steps I’ve used to grow my business from $0 to over $120 million in sales: $50 off with code ThankYou50 for a limited time:

Note: Craigslist is primarily US-based. There may be similar sites that work best with your country (Kijiji in Canada, for instance).

Disclosure: Craigslist alone won’t make you millions. This took me years to cultivate – it took me several years to build it up to the point where I was actually making over $100,000 just from craigslist leads and referrals from craigslist leads. It won’t be a get-rich-quick technique but it CAN add tremendous value to what you’re already doing.

1. Go to Craigslist (I KNOW someone will ask me this…so here it is…step one…Craigslist.com)

2. When posting, I’ve found longer titles work better than shorter titles – ALL CAPS work best. If you use symbols like stars ★ or brackets, shorter titles do better. Use this carefully as it can be a bit spammy.

3. The body of the message should be kept simple, clear and concise. First thing to mention is your name and contact information (email and phone)

4. Mention that you have access to other properties and that they should contact you (if you’re a Realtor and want to work with leads)

5. Mention the specifics of the house – bedrooms, bathrooms, price, and square footage.

6. Describe the house in extreme details. The more keywords you use in your description, the more it’ll come up on Craigslist search results.

7. If you’re a Realtor – DISCLOSE that you’re a Realtor.

8. MAKE SURE TO HAVE GOOD PICTURES. This is essential.

9. Make sure to pick up your phone and return emails as soon as they come in. Otherwise you can lose the client.

10. Do not renew your ads. Just continue posting new ads and letting the old ones continue to run.

11. Ideally have several ads going at the same time, this increases the likelihood of someone reaching out.

That’s it! It’s pretty simple. Do this regularly, continue adding new lease listings when the current ones get rented out, continue helping people with their rentals, and these clients will eventually turn into buyers, sellers, referrals, and potentially great friends. It takes time but it’s paid off big for me.

Thanks for watching!

  1. Thanks again man, for the Craigslist "template" you sent me a while ago. I've been getting crazy amounts of leads. Been doing it consistently now for 3 weeks (all lease posts). Closed 1 lease and turned in two apps, got two buyers pre approved and 11 leases I'm working on as we speak! This stuff works!!! Just got a phone call yesterday form a buyer who's budget is 940k "holly SH*T"!! Thank you so much!

  2. How do you get the leases Steph ? And when I do get clients they only use me to look at everything on the market and then they walk away, it’s my first year and I watched all your videos but I’m getting discouraged .

  3. I think the best way to auto post real estate listings on Craigslist is to make use of cladpin https://tinyurl.com/y25885fu. นอกจากนี้ยังช่วยให้โค้ด HTML ทำให้โฆษณาของคุณน่าสนใจยิ่งขึ้นอีกเล็กน้อย UI นั้นค่อนข้างใช้งานง่ายและดูเหมือนว่าใช้กับ Microsoft Office แต่ก็ใช้งานได้

  4. Hi Graham, I've been watching your videos for more than a year now and I've been a huge fan. I'm 19 and have had my real estate license for nearly two months now. I've gotten about 35 leads since then and I am actively working with 3 of them to find their future homes. Now for my question, how do you go about getting into the leasing side of real estate? Which paperwork is involved in the permission to advertise a lease, is it just a standard listing agreement?
    Thanks,

  5. @Graham, I loved your video and would like to learn more from you. I live in BC Canada and up here you need a property manager license in order to take care of rentals. Do you guys have this requirement in Cali? How do you get the rental listing anyways? Is there any way to do the exact same thing using this same method to sell my office listings and act as the buyers agents? Please advise.

  6. Thanks. Two questions: where you find these listings for rent and persuade landlord or manager to pay you commission, especially as new agent without previous rentals. Second question, lots of No Broker Fee Ad on craigslist, how you compete? Any tenants would like to pay you one month broker fee? Thanks

  7. How comfortable is the average real estate agent with people posting their listings on other platforms? How does the profit return to you? Advertising fees, flat rates, percentages of sales? Thanks for the vid!

  8. I don’t fully understand, I am just now learning about real estate and now signing up to get my real estate license. I understand how in the long run Craigslist has gotten you referrals. I was wondering how does these leadings make you money in the moment. Do you eat paid at all for these listings, is it a small monthly payment? Or is it a long term Social investment that pays off big and consistent?

  9. Graham, thanks for this. As a commercial agent, I've been using Craigslist for commercial leases/sales for about 10 months and have had success in doing so, but with room for improvement.

    How do you feel about this template on the commercial side of real estate? Looking forward to your feedback! Love the channel!

  10. Great video! Question: how do you get permission to post on behalf of the owner on Craigslist? Are you pulling from MLS and asking permission from the listing agent?

  11. Hi Graham awesome video. I've definitely seen success with craigslist too. My first sale was a craigslist rental lead that decided to buy once they realized all the pet fees and general fees associated with renting.

    In your first few years in real estate, was the bulk of your income derived solely from lease listings using this method? That eventually became buyer and seller income? I know in your other videos you've stressed open houses and sphere. I guess my question is, since you're saying 90% of your business originated from Craigslist: was the income from lease listings in the first few years enough to live on?

    You've got great content thanks for all your help!

  13. Great Stuff, learned a lot! Can't thank you enough! Love the watch!! look like a Zenith from here. I got my eyes on a Zenith powered Daytona Rolex! love the Brand lots of History! Good 
    leather band choice!

  14. Hey Graham, I like your video and it has been very helpful. When you chose your listings, do you post all your listings or only a few choice ones? I have been doing it for the last month or so and have only generated 2-3 leads. What am I doing wrong?

  15. can you please do a series elaborating on this concept? do you screen rentees before you schedule an open house? do you secure commission paperwork on the other end with the listing agent before connecting them with your client? I guess I am inquiring about the 'after the lead' phase – if it's not too much for you to get into. Thanks Graham

  16. Awesome advise. I want to eventually try "rent to buy" when I have the funds and I'm hoping this will quickly grab the attention of potential renters – especially in multifamily residences
