I get mixed results. Nothing but spam replies when I leave an email address. Someone on this forum said to give just a phone number, so I did that when I sold my Harman stove.
First guy who called was serious but not ready to make the jump from wood to coal. We must have talked 20 minutes and I educated him but he never called back. He did tell me where he lived, and I drove by his house a week later, in a nice mid-scale neighborhood with houses pretty close together. He should have bought my stove! It was a warm day, he had a smoky wood fire going and his neighbors' houses were all engulfed in the cloud, I'm surprised they weren't throwing rocks through his windows.
Next guy who called was all excited, it was exactly what he was looking for, and he showed up next day with a handful of crisp $100 bills.
Thieves ARE a worry, though. People come to look at the stuff for sale, they see lots of other stuff while they are there, and you wonder if they will come back to make an unscheduled pick-up later.
