free real estate listing sites

If you’re anything like me, you can ALWAYS use another online platform to advertise your property listings – especially when that platform is FREE.

In this blog post, I’m going to show you 50 different websites you can use to put together a simple real estate listing and post it for thousands of new eyeballs to see.

As you’ll probably recognize, some of these websites are more established, some of them have a more targeted audience for real estate and some of them get significantly more traffic than others… so to keep it simple, I’m going to start with my current “Top 10” and follow with the rest of the websites that are currently operating on the internet.

Side Note: While it’s easy to assume your property listings only belong on websites with tons of traffic, I think it’s also important not to overlook the value of having your listings in front of many different audiences. Even when an advertising outlet is less-recognized or newer to the market, it could still be worth your while to post your property information there.

Remember, the goal is to get your listing in front of as many potential buyers as possible, and the buyers who browse on Website A may never think of browsing on Website B (or C, or D, or E). Since we can never know precisely where our next buyer will come from, it may be worth your consideration to look at what each of these options can bring to the table (and since none of these cost a dime, the only thing you stand to lose is your time).

1. Craigslist

When most people think of FREE online marketplaces, one of the first websites that comes to mind is Craigslist (and as one of the highest traffic websites in the world today, it’s no surprise why).

Craigslist has long been an ideal place to find buyers and sellers for all types of real estate – mainly because there are a lot of people taking part in every sub-category of this online platform.

Craigslist ads are very basic with no frills (which follows the same general theme of the website as a whole). As you can see from this screenshot – they’re nothing special, but they get the job done.

Even though Craigslist is clearly the winner in terms of traffic, it’s not necessarily the most versatile medium. There are plenty of restrictions in place (like the inability to link to third-party websites and embed videos), however with the tools that are available – it’s more than enough to inform buyers about what the property has to offer and drum up enough interest to generate some legitimate leads and sales.

Here’s a quick rundown of the features Craigslist has to offer:
  • Image Uploading? Yes – Up to 24 Images
  • Video Supported? No
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Google Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? No
  • Special Promotion Options? No
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? No

In my opinion, Craigslist is a listing platform that is ALWAYS worthwhile to use (whether you’re selling as the owner or the agent). With the hundreds of millions of visitors the site gets each month, it’s pretty hard not to play on this platform.

2. Zillow

Zillow is another massive online platform designed specifically for the real estate crowd. Rather than serving the needs of many different types of buyers and sellers like Craigslist, this website is focused specifically on being the number one marketplace for buyers and sellers of real estate.

The great thing about Zillow is that it’s one of the few online real estate marketplaces that also allows property owners to post real estate listings For Sale By Owner for FREE… and this is actually kind of a big deal.

There are hundreds of millions of people passing through this site each month (with many of them coming from syndicated outlets like AOL, Yahoo, Trulia and more) and most of them are there with the sole purpose of looking for real estate to buy and rent. It’s also worth noting that many buyers start their search with Zillow (instead of looking only at their local MLS listings), so it’s a great way to gain exposure to a massive (and targeted) audience at no cost.

I actually think Zillow listings are some of the best when it comes to compiling the information. Not only do the listings look pretty good (aesthetically speaking), but they also come with a lot of supplemental data built-in with their various drop-down items, which can help prospective buyers learn more of the story behind each listing.

Here’s a quick rundown of the features Zillow has to offer…
  • Image Uploading? Yes
  • Video Supported? Yes – you can link to third-party videos (off-site) or you can add a self-shot video via your mobile device.
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Bing Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? No
  • Special Promotion Options? No
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? Yes

My only real complaint with Zillow is with their video feature. While I’m certainly glad they provide ANY options to add video (unlike most of the free listing sites I’ve come across), I’m not a huge fan of their 2-minute self-shot video option. It’s not easy to show a property in it’s best light in under 2 minutes and/or by only using the camera in your pocket. It’s unfortunate that they don’t offer the ability to upload or embed a higher-quality, better-produced video. If they added this option, it would be a MAJOR improvement to their FSBO listing platform.

3. Facebook

Facebook is a website that needs no introduction. In addition to being the dominant player in social media today, it has also grown into a very active and effective place to buy and sell real estate. Whether you choose to post properties for sale in the Facebook Marketplace or in one or more a local “For Sale” Facebook Groups in your area – this social platform offers a TON of opportunity to get more exposure.

With a website like Facebook, most people are already spending time here every day (and they’re not here solely for the purpose of finding real estate deals), so there’s a great opportunity to catch the attention of buyers through a different (and hugely popular) avenue of the internet.

If you can get your property information posted in the right groups and include some great, high-quality pictures and basic property information, it’s a fantastic way to increase your chances of finding a buyer for your property.

The property listings look similar to most Facebook posts…

Here are some of the features Facebook has to offer…
  • Image Uploading? Yes – Up to 42 Images
  • Video Supported? Yes
  • Mapping Functionality? No
  • Linking to Outside Sites? Yes
  • Special Promotion Options? Yes
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? Yes

Keep in mind, if you include a longer property description with these kinds of ads, users will have to manually click “See More” to read everything – so really, the primary selling point that catches most people’s interest is the pictures. Paying a little extra for a good photographer to take good pictures can go a LONG way on Facebook.

Facebook makes it easy to link to an outside website (like your selling website, for instance), so you can always include the more detailed listing information there, as long as you can draw your buyer’s attention with a few good pictures and enough information to entice them to click through.

Another nice thing about Facebook is that once you create a posting, it’s very easy to post it in multiple Facebook groups (if you happen to be a member of more than one group that will find the information relevant)… which means you don’t have to “fight the system” to get more exposure, like you would with a website like Craigslist.

4. Connected Investors

If you’re a real estate investor, Connected Investors is a site you ought to know about. It’s a pretty sizable online community of like-minded people, and the site offers more than just networking opportunities, you can also list your properties for sale (as well as view properties for sale from other investors).

Since the vast majority of folks on this website are real estate investors – it’s important to recognize that people are here to make money from real estate… so the properties generally aren’t going to be priced absurdly high, but for investors who want to get in and squeeze some equity out of the deal.

Something I appreciate about the property listing platform on this site is that you can enter in A LOT of deal-specific details that real estate investors are going to care about, as explained in this video (e.g. – costs associated with owning the property, cash flow details, zoning and uses, etc.). I also really liked the ticking time clock at the top of each listing, as it helps instill a sense of urgency/scarcity for anyone who wants to take advantage of the deal.

Here’s a quick snapshot of what their listings look like…

Here are some of the features Connected Investors has to offer…
  • Image Uploading? Yes – I uploaded dozens and dozens of images and couldn’t find their limit.
  • Video Supported? No
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Google Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? No
  • Special Promotion Options? Yes
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? Yes

This site probably isn’t the best fit for a one-time FSBO seller or a real estate agent targeting owner-occupied buyers, but if you’re targeting the real estate investing community at large (say, if you’re a wholesaler or a seller of turnkey rental properties) – it’s a great place to get some exposure to a very targeted audience.

5. ForSaleByOwner

ForSaleByOwner is one of the more well-known websites for property owners who want to sell their home without paying a commission to an agent. Ironically, both of their premium listing packages actually do involve third-party agents who get paid (either by the buyer or the seller) from the sale… however, I think the most notable part of this site is that it also offers a FREE 30-day listing option, and their ads are put together pretty nicely too.

Considering this website brings in millions of targeted visitors each month AND the listings are supposedly syndicated to appear on RedfinHomeFinder and more, it may very well be worth your time and effort to upload your listing details to this website.

Here’s a quick look at how these ads are laid out…

forsalebyowner listing example

Here are some of the other features this site has to offer:
  • Image Uploading? Yes (limited to 20 images for free listings)
  • Video Supported? Yes
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Bing Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? No
  • Special Promotion Options? Yes
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? Yes

This site is a great fit for people selling to a targeted audience of real estate buyers. I appreciated their integration of video (i.e. – virtual tours) into their listings as well as the supplemental tools they offer to users. The site makes it very easy for buyers to search for properties as well – so it’s a great way to make your property information easily accessible to your prospects without getting lost in the shuffle of all the other listings out there.

6. Letgo

Letgo is a free listing website that seems to prioritize the ease-0f-use and visual elements of each listing. In my interactions with the website, it seems to be intended more for a mobile audience than for those on their desktop computers.

While I haven’t personally found a buyer through this website yet, I have heard from others who have gotten very fast results with it – so depending on which market you’re working in, it’s probably worth your while to at least try posting your properties here to see if they get any traction.

The Letgo app has a decent rating on iTunes, and from what I’ve seen of the listings I’ve posted on this website, the descriptions and pictures do legitimately look a lot better on a mobile device than when viewing it on a desktop (hopefully this will change, because most of the work I do is not on my phone).

Here’s a screenshot of what these listings look like on a desktop:

Here are some of the features Letgo has to offer:
  • Image Uploading? Yes – Up to 10 Images
  • Video Supported? No
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Google Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? No
  • Special Promotion Options? No
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? No

Letgo is unique in that listings are displayed to users based on their geo-location (which means buyers will see your listings if they’re located in close physical proximity to it… which isn’t always going to be the case with real estate).

The website and app also have chat capabilities, which can help communication between buyers and sellers.

7. Fizber

Fizber is another helpful website for listing properties, and it’s one of those key platforms with a targeted audience for real estate buyers.

Fizber also offers sellers the ability to list their properties on the MLS for a flat fee (without signing a contract with a real estate agent), which is another notable feature that most real estate listing sites don’t bring to the table.

My only real complaint with Fizber was that the site doesn’t allow sellers to list properties priced less than $25,000 (which seems like a random number to peg as the floor). For most sellers, this won’t be an issue – but if you’re selling something really cheap (like a $6,900 vacant lot), this pricing floor will obviously get in the way.

Here are some of the features Fizber has to offer…
  • Image Uploading? Yes
  • Video Supported? No
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Google Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? No
  • Special Promotion Options? Yes
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? Yes

The listings on Fizber are pretty basic, and like most of the sites on this list – they’re geared towards properties with improvements. The site gets a respectable amount of traffic (given that it’s focused solely on the real estate crowd), but it’s not quite in the same ballpark as Zillow or Craigslist. Overall, it’s not a bad option to work with, especially if you’re interested in blasting your listings out to the MLS as well.

8. Oodle

From what I’ve seen, Oodle probably has the most streamlined process for posting a property for sale. You don’t have to navigate through page-after-page of details to post a property. Property sellers can fill out one simple submission form to get their entire listing compiled and posted in a matter of seconds (and it’s especially fast if you already have the listing information prepared and you’re just copying it from another source).

To be honest, I actually had a hard time with this site at first. For some reason, it was automatically flag and removing all of my listings almost immediately after posting… which was a little problematic. I’m still not sure why it was doing this – but I’m guessing it was because my listings were all for vacant land, and these properties typically don’t have a verifiable street address. That being said, if you can actually get your listings posted successfully – the ads do a good job of highlighting all the important details in a short amount of space.

Perhaps the most notable thing about Oodle is that these listings are supposedly syndicated with Redfin – so when you post a listing on Oodle, you’re also getting some notable exposure to another massive audience of real estate buyers.

Here are some of the features Oodle has to offer…
  • Image Uploading? Yes
  • Video Supported? Yes – YouTube
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Google Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? No
  • Renewal Options? Yes
  • Special Promotion Options? No
  • Social Media Optimization: No
  • Account Required? Yes

Overall, I like how Oodle makes it pretty quick and simple to compile a listing, and the syndication with Redfin is another huge selling point for the site. Assuming you can get the site to keep your listing active without flagging and removing them (which was, unfortunately, a big obstacle for me), it’s a nice little outlet to get some additional exposure for your listings.

9. Asset Column

I had never heard of Asset Column until I really started searching hard for free real estate listing websites. When I finally found it, I was honestly surprised it had never come across my radar earlier. This platform is designed pretty well, the website as a whole looks great and it makes the process of putting together a listing very easy.

I liked some of the unique features of the site, like how it specifies the percentage below market value each property is priced at, and the easy and prominent social sharing buttons. All in all, it seems like a pretty nice platform to post real estate listings on.

Here’s a quick look at the standard listing…

Here are some of the features Asset Column has to offer…
  • Image Uploading? Yes
  • Video Supported? No
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Google Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? No
  • Special Promotion Options? No
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? Yes

Like most free listing sites, the format isn’t necessarily optimized for vacant land properties (like the kinds I typically sell), but it’s certainly possible to work within the parameters they give you (Pro Tip: On the first step when they ask for an address… you can also enter in the GPS coordinates of your property, in case it doesn’t have a registered address yet).

10. FindMyRoof

FindMyRoof does a pretty decent job of putting together a nice listing that gives all the basic details in an easy-to-follow format. It’s not a terribly complex process to create a listing, and the site doesn’t draw in a huge amount of traffic – but it is a relatively targeted audience of real estate buyers, which may make the site worth your time and consideration.

Here’s a quick look at the typical property listing…

Here are some of the features FindMyRoof has to offer…
  • Image Uploading? Yes
  • Video Supported? Yes – YouTube
  • Mapping Functionality? Yes – Google Maps
  • Linking to Outside Sites? Yes
  • Special Promotion Options? No
  • Social Media Optimization: Yes
  • Account Required? Yes

Two things I liked about this site was the fact that users are able to include YouTube videos with each listing AND link to outside websites (something I wish all listing websites would allow). Another unique feature is that FindMyRoof also allows visitors to click the “Flyer” button on each listing and generate a nice, printable version of each ad.

Still Looking for More?

Okay, now that we’ve covered my current “Top 10”, I realize some people may still be looking for even more places they can post their real estate listings for free… so with those folks in mind, I spent some time scouring the internet to find an extensive list of websites that will allow this functionality.

Before you try out any of these websites, let me be clear – I haven’t used all of these platforms and I’m not intimately familiar with how they work (including what kinds of people run them and/or what kinds of people peruse through them on a daily basis).

I’m not necessarily “endorsing” these websites or recommending that you use them, this is just a centralized list of what else is out there right now (note: this information was last updated as of mid-2017), so you can investigate them on your own and decide of they’re the right fit for you.

Make sense?


Here’s what I was able to find out on the inter-web (in no particular order)… 

11. HotPads

Hotpads is unique on this list because it’s only intended for listing properties (houses, apartments, condos, etc) for rent, not for sale. Nevertheless, this still fills a major need for many property owners, and since it’s one of the bigger players in the space, with a very well-designed layout and interface, it’s definitely worth mentioning on this list.

This site pulls in over 10 million monthly visitors, and as one of the Zillow Group Brands, all listings are syndicated to appear on Zillow and Trulia, which is a huge value add.

12. Cozy

Cozy is a bit different from the other listing websites on this list. The first differentiator is that (similar to HotPads), it’s intended only for rental properties, and marketing them to prospective tenants (not selling a property outright).

Another key difference is that no prospective tenant actually searches on Cozy for rental properties. Instead, Cozy syndicates their listings to websites like Realtor and Doorsteps (Cozy is one of the few sites – maybe the only one – that allows independent landlords to get their rental listings on the MLS via

You can also simply use Cozy as the place to host your listing, and then share the URL wherever you want (post it on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, text it to a friend or email it to everyone on your list). This gives you more control over who is looking at your rental property – which can be very useful in some cases.

Cozy is also a full-blown property management platform, which means the listing functionality is tightly integrated from listing to the application to lease to payment collection. Cozy is built for landlords, which means its usefulness can be taken much further than a site built strictly for advertising your properties.

13. Kahping

Kahping makes it very easy to create real estate listings, add photos and highlight what the features and details are of each new listing (and it does a better job than some of the non-specialized websites like Craigslist). The listings make pretty good use of space, giving users different tabs to click on and expand to see more information.

14. AdLandPro

AdLandPro allows users to post free classified ads, local classifieds, and do free online promotions with online business ads or classified postings.

15. BuyandSell

BuyandSell was is a free listing site that was launched in 2005 in Toronto, Canada. The site serves users across over 190 countries and 6 continents and it is focused on accelerating trade between buyers and sellers in every market across the globe.

16. ClassifiedAds

ClassifiedAds is another free listing website with a similar look and feel to Craigslist. You aren’t required to maintain an account here, and the ads on this site also come with a nice little inquiry form at the bottom of each listing – so it’s one less step for an interested party to contact the seller for more information. The listings also allow sellers to link to third-party websites, which is a nice little extra feature you can use to send extra traffic to your selling website.

17. FreeClassifieds

FreeClassifieds is another free listing website you can use to sell pretty much anything. You can post free local classified ads and search free local classifieds as well.

18. WebClassifieds

WebClassifieds is another US-based classified ads website you can use to buy, sell or trade. Similar to the other classified ads websites, this is another catch-all platform that us used to sell all types of items.

19. LandSaleListings

LandSaleListings is a great site to know about if you’re trying to list and sell vacant land specifically. The site offers a few paid listing options, but it also allows users to post listings for free (with only one picture). It’s not necessarily the most versatile or beautifully designed site on this list, but it’s another valid option that doesn’t cost anything and can potentially get your ad seen by a new audience.

20. AdsGlobe

AdsGlobe is an advertising gateway for online classifieds in jobs, real estate, rentals, autos, services, items for sale, travel, events, pets, business, and community.

21. Beycome

Beycome is a real estate listing site that offers both free and paid listing options. Designed specifically with FSBO sellers in mind.

22. Hoobly

Hoobly is a pretty sizable classified ads platform that draws in millions of visitors per month. People use this site to sell arts, books, clothing, electronics, home and garden, pets, real estate, vehicles and more.

23. PennySaverUSA

PennySaverUSA is another run-of-the-mill classified ads site where you can browse and post free online listings, get coupons, and find other interesting deals.


The claim behind is that you can search all classified ad sites at once. Given that you can also post ads for free, it’s probably worth checking out.

25. Recycler

Recycler is another online marketplace that connects buyer and sellers together at the local level. It’s an ideal platform for buying and selling cars, pets, real estate, jobs and more.

26. REIFreeClassifieds

REIFreeClassifieds is a listing site geared specifically towards the real estate investing industry (it’s not just a catch-all listing site that anyone can use for purposes unrelated to real estate). If you’re looking to tap into a bit more of a focused audience, this one could be a great fit.

27. Geebo

Geebo is website where it’s easy to place ads and safer to search. As stated on their home page, their goal is to go the extra mile to help build, protect, and connect communities.

28. AmericanListed

AmericanListed provides millions of safe and local classifieds for jobs, rentals, pets, for sale, housing, real estate, cars, boats, services, events, clothing, furniture and motorcycles.

29. FreeAdsCity

30. FreeAdsTime

31. BeatYourPrice

32. Loot

Loot is a pretty well-designed listing website where you can post free real estate ads and browse the site for other opportunities, such as jobs, cars, properties, pets, services and more.

33. EPage

EPage was one of the first “dot-com” companies in the world, founded in 1994 as an “Internet only” business dedicated to providing the best classified and auction services to its customers. The EPage Network has now grown to over 850,000 monthly visitors and has displayed over 3 billion classified advertisements.

34. DomesticSale

DomesticSale is a place where you can post US-based online classified ads. Use this place to buy & sell autos, real estate or general merchandise.

35. Locanto

Locanto is a free, user-to-user local community classifieds site. You can use the site to post and search ads, to find a new place to live, buy a new car, find a job and much more.

36. AdPost

AdPost is another classified ad listing website that can be used to browse and sell all the major categories you’d expect to see on a classified ad website.

37. Kugli

Kugli is another free classified ads site and international business networking site. They have dedicated categories for dozens of different local and regional classified ads.

38. Sales Spider is a free social network designed to help small to midsize businesses expand their networks, connect with contracting and supplier opportunities, post free classified ads, and gain free access to sales leads and business opportunities. It’s supposedly one of the largest free social networks for business owners and includes free sales leads and prospect lists, free classified ads, free business directory, and free business forums.

39. Ablewise

40. BuySellCommunity

BuySellCommunity is an online community where you can buy and sell your stuff for free and/or open up your own online storefront.

41. House.Info

House.Info is one of the few websites on this extended list that is focused specifically on real estate. The site features thousands of listings in brings in a fair amount of monthly visitors – so this one could be of interest for the specific purpose of posting your properties for sale.

42. Gold Classifieds

GoldClassifieds provides free online classifieds, free online advertising services, including free online classified ads posting and searching. This website is available for Global users.

43. AdFreePosting

AdFreePosting is another classified ad listing website that can be used to browse and sell all the major categories you’d expect to see on a classified ad website.

44. FreeToClassifieds

FreeToClassifieds appears to be a pretty basic listing website, but it could do the trick. This platform will allow you to publish real estate listings without an account.

45. TopClassifieds

TopClassifieds is another basic classified listing site. Nothing particularly special about it – just another platform to get some extra exposure for your listings.

46. AdsKeep

AdsKeep is another basic (and fairly unsophisticated) classified listing site. This site has several real estate related categories and could be a good place to connect with buyers and sellers.

47. SuperAds

SuperAds is a pretty self-explanatory classified ads website. If you know how to use Craigslist, you should be able to figure this one out pretty easily.

48. Global Free Classified Ads

As the name implies, Global Free Classified Ads features listings from all over the world, so it’s not the most centralized place to connect with local buyers and sellers. However, if you’re looking for more of a global audience, it could be a good fit.

49. 10DayAds

10DayAds is a free classified ads website for selling new or used items and listing your business in the USA or worldwide so that you can reach millions of buyers to sell your stuff. There is a real estate category available, along with all the other, standard categories you’d expect to see on a website such as this.

50. HouseList

HouseList has a fairly small audience and the website doesn’t have the freshest design or layout, but it’s an audience specifically targeted in the real estate space – so it could be a great place to post your free listing.

The Value of Free

At the end of the day, I think the ability to advertise your properties to anybody (even if it’s just a small handful of people) without paying anything, is always worth something.

Granted, some of the outlets mentioned above are clearly going to generate more results than others (from a simple time investment and traffic generation standpoint), but if you’re on a shoestring budget and/or you just hate the idea of spending money, hopefully, these options will give you someplace to turn.

I think there’s always is a little bit of “luck” that comes into play with finding the right buyer at the right time, and the best way to increase your luck is to get your property information in front of as many eligible buyers as possible.

      Awesome! So glad to hear it Amina! Thanks for reading!

  2. Margarita says:

    Very helpful! Thank you for the detailed overview.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      You bet Margarita! Thanks for checking it out. 🙂

  3. Brian Entz says:

    Seth, Super helpful as always. Have you ever considered a tutorial or blogpost on tips or instructions on property ads specifically for Craigslist? Or perhaps another of the major venues like facebook, etc… I know I could use it.

  4. Bobby Wallace says:


    Everytime I visit your blog I read your latest article and I think, “WOW! This is GREAT information..
    Seth has really outdone himself this time”. This article may be your BEST yet!

    This is an A-W-E-S-O-M-E resource and if your visitors or subscribers spend just a fraction of the time posting on these 50 FREE sites as you did researching/writing this article, they will make a lot of sales/money!

    Personally, I had rather have 50 ways (like these FREE websites) to get 1 lead…than 1 way (like Craigslist) that may get “flagged” or “ghosted”.!

    I appreciate you,
    Bobby Wallace,
    Charleston, S.C.

  5. Nida says:

    Great List! This is one of the best real estate blog. Good idea of creating a list of top real estate submission sites to advertise property listings free. You have made easier to find these sites online at one place. Thank you for sharing this needful information.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Glad I could help! Thanks for reading Nida.

  6. JP says:

    A solid piece of content, Seth. Awesomely done.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks JP! Your new blog looks awesome, btw. 🙂

  7. MaryAnne Proctor says:

    I have used in the past. One downfall is you can only post 1 picture with a free ad but my ads got a fair amount of traffic and it did generate a few leads for me.

    1. Seth Williams says:

      That’s a great site to know about MaryAnne – thanks so much for sharing! I’ll have to check that one out.

  8. Ronnie says:

    Nice list, lots I have never heard of before, but I’m actually shocked that you don’t have: to name a few (all much higher traffic than 95% of the ones on the list)..

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Thanks Ronnie! Regarding those sites you mentioned – can those be used to list real estate for sale as well, or is it just for listing properties for rent?

      1. mark says:

        have you posted on successfully?

        1. Seth Williams says:

          I haven’t lately Mark. Have you?

          1. mark says:

            yes i did but the site only put your ads to pending no matter how to post it on there,and americanlisted is not free,you have to pay to advertise on there

  9. Kathy Toth says:

    NIce post and I learned about some extra sites! Warm Regards from Ann Arbor

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Glad you learned some new things here Kathy! Thanks for the comment.

      1. patrick says:

        Hey Seth,
        I can suggest you to add on your list. By the way, this list is a great help for homeowners!

        1. Seth Williams says:

          Thanks for sharing Patrick! Is that a paid listing site, or a free one?

        2. nico says:

          Thank you Patrick 😉

          for Sethm it’s free 😉

  10. Christopher Lotte says:

    Any good Listing Syndicators out there that you would recommend that will send the listings to those websites listed?

    1. Seth Williams says:

      Oh man, I wish. Zillow is probably the best one for syndication (because those listings will show up on Trulia too), but otherwise – I’m not aware of any SINGLE place you can post your listings and have them show up everywhere.

      That would be a great resource though – so if you ever learn about something like this, let me know!

      1. nico says:

        Hi Seth,
        Sorry if it’s too commercial but syndicate your listings on a lot of websites as Yakaz, Mitula, Nuroa, Listanza, Trovit, globallistings., waa2, Gvanga, Oodle, Geebo, Global free classfieds, Domesticsale, Recycler, Zumthing, Next-immo, Claz, Classifiedsgiant, locanto, Askalo,, rentalads, Zumper,Lycos, Yahoo, Msn, aol, Google, bing, facebook, duckduckgo, youtube… and it’s free;)

        If you need more infos, just let me know;)

        PS: By the way, this article was a great source for us 😉

  11. Kevin says:

    What about this one:
    You can have one listing for free.

  12. Rose says:

    Are there any tools where I can mass post a listing instead of having to go to each of the websites listed above?

    1. Seth Williams says:

      If there is, I don’t know about it yet. I can say that when you post on Zillow, those listings will also show up on Trulia (which counts for something), but I don’t know of any other place where you can post your listings once and have them syndicate everywhere. Whoever invents that will make a fortune. Let me know when you find it!

  13. Fromtoronto says:

    Thanks for sharing these free sites! Just to let you know, Kijiji and also offers free listings. Kijiji is one of the best to advertise about anything in my opinion. Rentmar is also a great platform, but you can only list rental properties within Canada.

  14. Arno says: list your home for free on a lot of real estate websites ( currently on your list)

  15. ANNIE NARINE says:

    Your articles are awesome keep doing what you do….

    1. Thanks Annie! Much appreciated!

  16. bobjames says:

    Yup these are my favorite websites specially for sale by owner. Thanks Seth..

  17. Ryan says:

    You can list your property at free

  18. Jill says:

    A new site that you can list your home for free is

    Free listing (no credit card required)

    They also have some cool marketing products 3 that you can buy unlike any other site I’ve seen:
    like a video that you can order with your pictures and home info that goes with music… great for sharing on social media…around $100 two day turn around time!
    Phone number so u don’t have to use ur cell.
    And a pkt with all legal forms, brochure template, resources etc.. kind of cool…

    1. GG says:


      1. I don’t think that’s one of the options I mentioned above – is it? Which number are you referring to?

  19. Jerry says:

    BIG TIME CLASSIFIEDS at is a great new two year old free classifieds site offering free ads, unlimited text, hyperlinks clickable directly to your site and even video to bring your ads to life. Categories for Real Estate, Boats for Sale, Electronics, Services, Products, and pretty much everything. New User Accounts are OK’ed usually within a couple of hours. Just don’t over post the same item or service or they remove your account for life. Excellent SEO at this site for your ads – be sure to enter keywords.

  20. Relomi Ikan says:

    Thanks for sharing the list. It is really helpful.

  21. Iris Black says:

    Such an amazing list Seth! Will be helpful for so many house flippers, agents and brokers. Zillow so far, has remained the go-to choice for everyone. It will be good to have more websites on its line.

    1. Thanks Iris! I’m glad you thought it was helpful! Thanks for reading.

  22. Smith Mark says:

    Thanks for sharing nice info. please take a look on this website it’s a global free classified site. where anyone can promote their business with 100% free.

    1. Dah – you’re right! They must’ve changed that recently… sorry about that. I’ll set a reminder to get in there and update this with something else ASAP.

  23. Thank you for the best post. It will be so helpful because i’m going to open my real estate company as an Agent for property buying sell, renting and being etc.. such kind of stuff will be there.. last time as a trial I have listed my information being an agent fill over there I didn’t have any results with a realtor. Had a bad one.

    Need more lists to submit Indian real estate company.

  26. Santos Garcia says:

    You can also visit this website buys houses at any condition, and they put up a good offer for your house!hope this helps!

    1. Thanks Santos! Good to know.

  27. Brandon Richards says:

    I never thought there are this many sites to search for houses and list them for free, Thanks for the information. investor sites also are good sites to list your house since buyers come to you and you dont wait anymore, plus they give you a good offer as well, but anyways this blog is great thanks for sharing this!

    1. Thanks for reading Brandon!

  28. john atsatt says:

    How important is it to get our listing on the MLS as a FSBO? Is it worth the $400 just to get listed as we already have it on Zillow and our own website?

    1. When I’ve done it in the past, it has yielded me ZERO results. I’m sure these results can vary on a case-by-case basis, but in my experience, it was a total waste of money… so take that for what it’s worth.

  29. Mike says:

    This website is an absolute load of rubbish, it’s full of lies.

    1. Sorry you feel that way Mike. Is there a particular part of the site you’re referring to?? I’d love to hear more about why you say this.

  30. Steve McDonald says:

    Craigslist ‘Homes For Sale’ category is no longer free

  31. Michael says:

    Which of these is the best for listing residential properties for rent?

    1. Hi Michael – if you’re looking primarily for exposure, I would definitely check out HotPads and Craigslist.

  32. Nisreen says:

    Hi Seth, thanks for the great list, but are they valid in all over the world?? can they be useful in the middle east??

    I come from France and i want to sell my new build house (in France of course), do you know website were I can put a international ad for free ?
    In your list, I tried everyone and isn’t possible to put my ad because the house is located in France.



    1. Jennifer says:

      Hi Faustine, you could list your house in France on
      They accept international ads and it is for free. 🙂

  35. Shane says:

    I’ve seen other questions about where I can list a house outside of the U.S. but I haven’t seen any answers. Maybe I’m just missing them. I want to list a house in Bali.

    1. Hi Shane – unfortunately, I don’t have much expertise on how things work outside the U.S. Have you tried calling around to some local real estate offices in Bali? Perhaps they can point you in the right direction.

  36. lioa says:

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been conducting a little research on this.
    And he actually bought me breakfast due to the fact that I discovered it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this matter here on your
    internet site.

  37. Debbie Siegel says:

    Don’t forget about E-Bay Classifieds. They are totally free! Also you can list your property for sale to the highest bidder. There are charges related to bid-auctions. You can even add a Buy Now button, to state your asking price

  38. Gordon Hickley says: for rental property listing for free.

    1. Thanks for sharing Gordon!

  39. Chris Johnson says: (We are launching 2.0 version in a couple days to a week from now)

  40. Richard says:

    Another new listing site is, you can list property for sale or rent and its free.

    1. Thanks for sharing Richard! Is that site based only in Canada, or is it in the United States (and elsewhere) as well?

  41. Daniel says:

    Thanks for the info Seth. What 3 websites are your favorites to post for apartment rentals? Thanks in advance.

    1. Craigslist, Hotpads, Zillow

  42. Gene Panasenko says:

    A pretty comprehensive list of helpful sites for the people in the industry.

    1. Thanks for reading Gene!

  43. CC says:

    Hi ! Thanks for these useful tips. Any idea where I could list my poperty in France? I wanted to make it available for foreign investors or possible expats? Thanks again, I appreciate.

    1. Hmmm, good question. I honestly can say for sure… but I’m pretty sure Craigslist is active in France (and probably at least a handful of the others in the list above). Have you tried any of them yet?

  44. GC says:

    Please consider categorizing your list. Which sites are fsbo only? RE agent only? Rent only? That’s a lot of sites to comb through just to get rejected after entering all of your info. I have and agent but I want to extend my coverage. However I’m listed on the top ten. Thx

    1. That’s a great suggestion GC, thanks for mentioning that! I’ll see what I can do to categorize these a bit better.

      For those most part – NONE of these are “RE agent only”, but some of them are rent-only, so you’re right, I think that’s probably worth highlighting a bit better.

  45. Tania Pretorius says:

    Are there any sites for South Africa, specifically Bloemfontein

    1. I’m pretty sure Craigslist works in South Africa (it seems to work in most markets around the world).

  46. Wendy says:

    Can I lousy my home for sale without a realtor?

    1. I’m not exactly sure what that means… but sure! You probably can.

  47. Jennifer says:

    I can recommend
    I list all my real estate there.

    1. Thanks for sharing Jennifer!

  48. Elton says:

    My boss from sweden want to add his hotel from sweden.

  49. Matt says:

    I like for free FSBO listings 🙂

    1. Good to know! Thanks for sharing Matt.

  50. Mike Simon says:

    Great article! I think nobody can compete with CraigsList so far though. I would like to mention one more classified ads website PartnerUpList – this is a free message board for Business Opportunities and Business Partners search. No registration required to place an ad. The board content is moderated to prevent spam

    1. Good to know! Thanks for sharing Mike.

    Thanks for sharing Seth. Have you heard of Localize ( It’s an apartment searching site that helps people find a great home based on their lifestyle and needs. it’s free, user-friendly and includes a ton of info on properties and their surroundings.

    1. Haven’t heard of that one Lihi, but I can look into it.
