sell on craigslist?

Do you sell on craigslist? How do you do it. I know how, but do you meet people somewhere to exchange the items so you don't bring them to your house? I guess I'm paranoid about letting strange people come to my home from online. But I have stuff I want to sell.

  • We've sold many things on Craigslist. We talk to the people on the phone before they come over and before I give them my address. I always make sure my husband is home with me when they come here, too. We've never had a problem. All of the people have been really nice. We've sold a bed, a dresser, speakers, baby gear (swing, exersaucer, etc.) and we've had great success with it! Good luck!

  • im not sure what it would be like where you are but here in hawaii when i sell things people come to my house to pick it up, but i always place pictures so that people wont say they want to come by and see it unless their serious buyers. i usually sell the big expensive things on there but all the little stuff i sell in a grage sale.

  • I have sold and bought stuff on craigslist. I usually go to their house or they'll come to mine. Usually you can tell if they're weirdos just by talking to them. I know people that have met in between the distances but I dont.

  • I have met people at shopping complexes to buy stuff on Craigslist, that way it's public and safe, and we meet in the middle so it's easier for everyone.

  • We sold my hubby's car on craiglist. I would be uncomfortable having strangers come to my home if I were there alone. But hubby took care of it. If you don't feel comfortable with them coming to your house, meet them somewhere close by.
