    I post several aff ads every day and get a ton of responses and the ads stick. Not a big deal.
    I have encountered lately though that my REAL ads get no responses while the too good to be true aff ads get hundreds of responses.
    About a year ago, I sold a car on CL in less than an hour and had hundreds of responses to the point that i had to setup an autoresponder and unplug my phone. This month though, I've been trying to sell another car and haven't got a single response. I've also posted some legit services with no responses. I always post a picture if its applicable and make the ad very well written. The only responses I ever get are from scrapers sending aff links.

    Does anyone have any tips on getting better responses for selling real items like this? How about tips on keeping them from getting flagged?

    Again, this is for real stuff not aff stuff. Kinda funny though that my aff stuff posts better than the legit stuff.

    I think you've answered your own question.

    If your "too good to be true" ads are getting good responses, make your real ads sound too good to be true, as well, and see if that helps.
