Our craigslist experiment has come to an end. I reported the other day that, despite craigslist having a major headstart, we ended up selling our couch based on an ad in our local paper. And now this… After craigslist generated virtually no interest in our refrigerator, we ended up getting a number of inquiries from our newspaper ad and ultimately sold it within three days for our asking price. So there you have it… Plain old classified ads seem to be more effective than craigslist (at least in our area and for the types of items that we were selling).
