Facebook Marketplace, launched in 2016, attracts millions of visitors each month who are looking to discover, buy and sell items in their local areas. With their property listing feature, you can leverage this community to reach tenants where they already are.
Perhaps the most appealing benefit of using Facebook Marketplace is that, unlike many other online portals, Marketplace is completely free to use, so you can sit back and watch the tenancy requests roll in.
Advertising rental properties on the portal gives you the opportunity to reach an additional audience of a growing number of Facebook users who are highly motivated to find their next homes to rent.
Prospective tenants can use a variety of filters to search for your property including rental type, price per month, number of bedrooms, etc. They can then easily get in touch by sending a message on Messenger or filling out a simple contact form with their details, which you can then use to contact them.
To ensure a better experience for everyone, Facebook also provides Marketplace buyers and sellers with official Community Standards and best practices which detail how to interact safely with others on Marketplace.
