Over the last several years millions of hard working Americans have struggle to pay the mortgage/rent, a vehicle payment and all utilities each and every month. One of the best methods to alleviate this problem is to cut out one of the bills. Buying used cars at a low price under $1000 has helped many families do just that. When looking for Craigslist Cars under $1000 for sale by private owner options it might be a good idea to check out several different Craigslist subdomains and pages.

Can I Find a Car or Truck Under $1000 Locally?
The only way to answer this question is to get out there and look. There are over 420 Craigslist websites in different areas throughout the country so there is a very good chance that there is one close by. Even if it is 50 to 100 miles to the closest location it does not mean that there will not be listings in your local area. Some of the smaller towns that do not have a Craigslist page happen to be the more searched on the larger websites.
Here are a few listings under $1000 I found throughout the United States. I am not going to link the Craigslist page because the links are going to break when the vehicles are sold in the very near future.

Can I Use a Credit Card or Car Loan on Craigslist?
Generally speaking, most sellers on Craigslist are looking for cash. If you are seeking an opportunity for a private for sale by owner listing it might be smart to come up with the money before going to purchase the vehicle. If you have to go get a bank loan beforehand this is not necessarily a terrible thing. Just know if you plan on buying the car, truck, van or SUV before taking out the loan.
