Listing a property on Facebook Marketplace

Listing Your Property On Facebook Marketplace In 2022 [Step By Step Guide]

A quick explanation of what Facebook Marketplace is

Facebook Marketplace is a platform where sellers can list products they want to sell and buyers can purchase them.

It is not specific to real estate. Facebook Marketplace allows the following categories:

  • Classifieds
  • Clothing & Accessories
  • Deals
  • Electronics
  • Entertainment
  • Family
  • Hobbies
  • Home & Garden
  • Housing
  • Vehicles

Here’s what CANNOT be sold on Facebook Marketplace:

  • Adult products or services
  • Alcohol
  • Animals
  • Digital media and electronic devices
  • Event tickets
  • Gift Cards
  • Healthcare items (thermometers, first-aid kits, etc.)
  • Illegal, prescription or recreational drugs
  • Tobacco products or tobacco paraphernalia
  • Unsafe supplements
  • Weapons, ammunition, or explosives
  • Intangible items like a service

So anyone can list a product on Marketplace as long as it does not violate Facebook’s rules. Once listed, it is visible to all users when they access Marketplace and search for the item category.

Facebook Marketplace is therefore an excellent place to list and promote your property when you are looking for tenants.
