Hope everyone is doing well. I know I am. I wanted to let you in on a little secret. One of the things that has caught my interest is craigslist. I’m sure most of you have heard of or even used craigslist. I had too. What a great place to find junk, post and find lost pets, and even yard sale listings. Lots of people now even list their homes for sale of craigslist. It’s a great tool, that you can search by area and find what you are looking for.
I get lots of people that ask me about rental homes and how to find them. True, some are listed in the MLS system, which is the national real estate database, but they are few and far between. I have found the best source now a days is Craigslist! If you aren’t familiar with craigslist, you should check it out. It’s basically a huge classified ads web page. You can narrow it down by area and there is a ton of good stuff on there. Here is a link to Nashville’s.
Another great thing to use the site for is furniture. You wouldn’t believe what a deal some of it is. A friend of mine recently bought a new house and filled it with furniture form craigslist. It looks awesome. The stuff she got was so nice, some of it even new. Her total cost was around $1000.00. She decorated her entire living and dining room! If you think about it, I’m sure we all have certain rooms with furniture we hardly ever use. So maybe redecorate? Buy new funky furniture and change the look if it. You might even get more use out of the room. A tip: Be prepared to search a couple of times each day, the good stuff goes fast.
