Click on either the “furniture” or “free” link, below the “for sale” heading. In the “free section”, you may find that the quality of some items listed to be substandard. However, this is a great way to find items that people are trying to remove from their basement if your budget is restricted.

Create the search criteria. For example, interchange keywords such as “sofa”, “futon”, and “couch” for the most direct results, if you are looking for a sofa. Search the name of your neighborhood and see what comes up.

If you want to pick it up from a seller nearby and do not have a moving van at your disposal. For example, you can type “Lincoln Park” into the search box. You can indicate a maximum or minimum price in the “price” search box if you know exactly how much you can afford and are working to a budget.

Choose carefully. Do not bother looking at posts without photos, unless an item’s description is unusually descriptive or you are feeling brave. Before purchasing, it is always best to ask the seller questions about the item’s quality, even posts with pictures can be deceptive. It is difficult to detect even general wear and tear just looking at the photo.

Always contact the sellers

“The early bird really does catch the worm” on Craigslist. Do not hesitate to call or email the seller right away, if you see a particularly attractive item. When contacting 10 posts, it’s possible only six may return your message, three still have the bed available, and only one bed might be in good condition.

If you are genuinely interested in an item, make a commitment to the seller. In order to view the furniture, arrange a time and place with the seller, and follow through with the appointment. If it was predetermined in the posting, respect the seller’s rate, but still feel free to bargain.

Purchase the furniture

Craigslist interactions are commonly pleasant and brief. And then, meet the seller through the appointment you made before. Before purchasing, ask as many questions as you need. Once you see the furniture, make sure the seller’s price matches the quality of the item.

Bring cash along with you to make the transaction sweet and short. In order to help haul the furniture away, prepare a moving van or a strong friend.
