I've both sold and bought on Craigslist quite a bit. In fact, I got my most recent cellphone from someone on there since Verizon started getting greedy with their subsidies.
In most cases, I tend to meet the person half way. The reason for this, is that I would really rather strangers NOT know where my family and I live, and I would also rather not go to that same strangers home. Safety first.
I wrote a Hub on Craigslist scams, but it also covers safety. Feel free to check it out.
