  • Depends on the item and the area it is being sold in. Just be careful.

  • If its free or very cheaply priced, yes. Especially if you live in a well populated area.

  • On hot items, yes! I posted a king size bed in the free section once and seriously regreted putting my phone number with the ad! I must have had 50 calls within the first 3 hours!

    I also have had ads that only received one or two calls (free stuff) but the item was gone within hours of listing it!!

    My for sale items have done well on craigslist too. It just depends on how desirable the item is and if you are asking the right price for it to move quickly.
