craigslist car deals are booming.
With millions of listings in the classifieds site, it’s easy to find cheap cars and accessories online.
Craigslist cars are one of the hottest topics on the site, with listings on Craigslist totaling more than 8 million listings, according to research firm Zillow.
Crafters love craigslist deals because they give them an instant source of sales.
Some sellers are selling their wares to a specific buyer, while others are reselling their car parts and accessories on craigslist.
Craptopics, a craigslist group that collects and publishes car deals, estimates that the online classifieds market has doubled since 2010.
“Craigslist has become one of our primary sources of income,” said Josh Miller, CEO of craptopicks.com.
Crafter Mike Loescher says craigslist is an excellent source of income.
He recently purchased a 2010 Chevrolet Corvette and is looking to replace it with a 2019 model.
Crapton cars tend to be more affordable than many cars in the U.S. and Canada.
In Canada, for example, a 2018 Ford Mustang is listed for $28,500 in Canada, compared to $38,400 in the United States.
But not everyone enjoys being a car salesman on craptops.com or craigslist, Miller said.
Craps have been known to take a backseat to Craigslist and other car-buying sites.
Loeschers car deal was for a 2006 Dodge Dart.
Luescher had been looking for a truck but had been unable to find one on Craigslist, according.
He then went to craptoppers car sale and found a used truck that he had been wanting to sell for $30,000.
“I wanted it for the money and it was like, ‘This is great,'” Loeschers father said.
A former car salesman, Loesheys dad says he often sees a young woman who is selling her car online and it’s a common tactic used by car dealers to recruit new customers.
“You want to look like you’re doing something,” said Loeshers dad, Mike Lueschers.
“You’re not going to look good.
I’ll never do that.”
