Individuals can sell cars on Craigslist for free. Most businesses don't have to pay to list an item on Craigslist, but car dealers and ticket dealers have to pay a $5.00 fee for each listing.
Because Craigslist allows individuals to list cars for free and charges a small fee to dealers, competition can be strong. Because of this, sellers should take steps to make their ad stand out. Posting detailed specifications can help, and researching previous sales in the area can help sellers find a good listing price. Detailing the car carefully and taking good pictures can also increase potential buyer interest and make the listing stand out.
