Last year Facebook announced new features in Marketplace for listing property rentals. It was initially being tested in the US, but now some of the features are available here in the UK too.
The good news first…
Right now you can list properties to rent (or for sale) on Facebook Marketplace.
You can include a headline for the property, the price, location, a description and up to 10 photos. And it is FREE to use.
Oh and that’s not all…
Marketplace also has notifications that tell Facebook users about similar products. This means that if someone has been viewing properties and you add your listings they will get notified if your properties are similar to the one they looked at.
If this all sounds too good to be true, let me give you the bad news.
The bad news (and this really sucks)
At the time of writing, the ability to list properties on Marketplace can only be done through a Personal Facebook Profile. This means they need to be listed by an individual and cannot be listed by your Facebook Business Page.
This will hopefully change soon, but for now it might be good to get key members of your team posting your stock in Facebook Marketplace.
