Craigslist for sale Dothan Alabama – Best price on Cars Trucks, appliances and houses for rent

by Craig Miller on April 4, 2013

Everything one could possibly imagine can be found on the Dothan Alabama Craigslist website. Finding the best deals on everything from cars to houses and appliances only takes a few seconds.

Dothan has a fairly active Craigslist community with several hundred active posting each day in the cars & trucks section, furniture for sale, and even in the employment section. As you most likely already know, there is no charge to view ads or even create one if you are looking to sell. Lets take a look at a few popular items or services that are typically posted.

Dothan Craigslist Cars listing

Are you looking for a new car for yourself or someone else but don’t want to make a monthly car payment to a lender? People find cheap cars and tucks on craigslist for $1500, 1000, or even $500. Yes, its true. You can own a running car for only $500. Finding cheap cars for sale may not be as difficult as you would expect. For starters, you will need to browse through the listings and enter the price range that you are interested in. Here is the process that I like to use when car shopping on craigslist.

  • Look for cars that have pictures. These days, the majority of sellers are taking pictures and posting them online. With plenty of cars to choose from you can be selective by eliminating cars that do not have pictures. Avoid the disappointment of checking out a car that you have no idea of its condition. 
  • Shop within your price range. Too many people browse Craigslist looking at cars that are way out of their price range. As a result, a lot of energy is focused on cars that they will never have the means to obtain. This can be avoided by searching for cars that are within your price range. Lets say for instance you have $2000 to spend on a motor vehicle. I would enter the price range of between five hundred and twenty-two hundred dollars. This will give you a fair choice of cars.
  • Avoid high mileage cars. There are lots of great deals on cars that have over 200k miles on craigslist. I tend to avoid these cars no matter how cheap they are because they are eventually bound for failure
  • Deal with people in the local Dothan area. Don’t bother driving 100 miles just to look at a car. There are plenty of great local cars within a short distance from your home.
  • Be creative when it comes to making a deal on a used car. Some people are willing to accept a trade in addition to some cash. It doesn’t hurt to ask a seller if they are looking for anything in particular and if they are willing to barter.

Buying a used car or truck is a great financial decision for anyone who wants to avoid paying for a car every month or for someone who can not make payments. Look for cars with pictures so that you can get an idea of what you are dealing with before spending time looking at something.

Small appliances and home furnishing in Dothan

Yet another great use for Craigslist Dothan Al is to find great deals on everything for your home from furnishings to appliances. Small appliances are a hot seller on craigslist because people often receive them as gifts or purchase them on a whim and they are never used. If have found some really great deals on small appliances. Here is a list of items that I have found really great prices on.

  • Toasters and toaster ovens
  • food processors
  • Blenders
  • juicers
  • microwaves
  • refrigerators
  • stoves
  • dishwashers
  • bread machine
  • keurig
  • Coffee makers

When I search for a used small appliance I tend to look for those items that have only been used a handful of times and were stored away under the sink for many years. As mentioned, these items are plentiful because people only use some things a time or two and then store them.

Furniture on craigslist

You can also find anything imaginable for furnishing your home. It is a fact that people move every day and need to sell items before they move. Finding someone who is moving soon and needs to sell is where you get your best deals on furniture. One trick is to search the furniture section for words such as “must go” or “moving must go”. These are the people who are ready to sell their stuff at a deeply discounted price. Call the seller and make them an offer before you arrive. This will save both your time and their time as they may not be willing to sell for an extremely low price. Keep this in mind when dealing with sellers on Craigslist.

Rental homes and roommates in Dothan

Need a place to live in Dothan? Craigslist has you covered. Hundreds of people use craigslist each day to find tenants or even roommates. You can even post an ad for yourself if you are searching for someone to room with.

Not interested in a roommate? You can find houses, apartments, condos townhomes and even trailers for rent. The list is updated ever 15 mins or so. This makes it a great idea to check back on a regular basis. When looking for a place to live, I often check my local craigslist at least 2 times a day. When a sweet deal comes along, you want to make sure you are in a position to accept an offer.  Rental units in Dothan are easy to come by.

As you can see, Craigslist is a website where you can find just about anything imaginable. When buying used items on craigslist, be sure to use your best judgement as there are some deals that you will want to avoid getting yourself into. Dothan Alabama Craigslist has plenty of second hand items for sale by owner, making it the perfect place for deal seekers such as you to shop.
