Craigslist to Print: "Booya!!!"

Craigslist Czar Jim Buckmaster just released some staggering statistics that, if anything, proved that print advertising is crashing and burning, Kamikaze style print classified advertising won't ever recover. Housing ads are up 85 percent, with rental ads up 120 percent and real estate up 70 percent. RE listings are humming along at such a fine rate, that CL is considering hitting agents Atlanta, Austin, Denver, Houston, Miami, Philadelphia and Phoenix with the same fees that apply here in SF. (Ed note: A Curbed comrade who works in publishing noted that ad sales bottomed out a long time ago.) [Silicon Valley Insider]
