How active is the classified section of your local paper?  Ours is pretty much dead.  I know when I was looking for a house I never even glanced at the local paper.  Not even six years ago when I bought the previous house.

I would suggest Craigslist before the paper.

local  paper is the Trenton Times. will try an open house ad once and track the results. real estate market here in my neighborhood is very slow. neighbor in back of me has had no offers on her house in 9 months. no sales in 2015. thanks for the suggestions.

Are there a lot of very old people who might want to buy your house? If so, by all means put an ad in the classifieds.
