facebook advertizing (by Anna F. [PA]) Posted on: Jun 12, 2019 1:40 PM

Thanks for advice. Have been a landlord for 30= years, advertise on the big online sites, Zillow, Realtor.com, CL etc, sometimes news paper , Have never even been on facebook personally nor for rental ads. Have 14 units, mostly single family homes, and have 0 to 4 vacancies annually. Usually fill in 30 to 60 days depending on time of year. My rents tend to be on the slightly high side, units are above average & show well. . I am reluctant to learn a new trick, lol. Question is -,Am I missing out by not advertising rentals on facebook?.

Anne, it's a mixed bag according to the folks here. I've not had good luck. Per vacancy, I usually get 80-100 responses, and when I respond back to them they almost never got back with me, or they ask tiresome questions that are answered in the ad, or they were unqualified, or they were being evicted, or they're looking for someone else, or or or or.... (insert a dozen nonsensicle problems).

Others have had better luck. Try it. It's free. What's the worst thing that can happen? --173.20.xxx.xxx

Around here, FB tends to bring in more marginal tenants-- the fast food and factories crowd. --107.77.xxx.xxx

I use FB marketplace and have good results. However, I agree that the number of inquiries : approved lease signor is far higher than other forms of advertisement.

If your unit showings require you to spend time talking with prospects on the phone, meeting with them in person, handing them applications ..... then FB is probably incompatible with your processes. --72.172.xxx.xx

Use it. Its free, lots of eyes.

It is almost my sole source of leads right now. Marketplace can get me 30 leads for one on zillow. Craigslist, is a ghost town for residential rentals. Still some action for commercial stuff. --66.170.xx.xxx

Give it a try... just have a plan to automate replies somewhat.

.ie- I cut and paste a link to a pre-show application...to ask 'em the basics.

Lots of inquiries.

Lower quality of prospect.

Still worth it. --70.92.xx.xx

You can always use face book to investigate your potential tenants. I occasionally find a dog that isn't mentioned anywhere. I also find drug activity by some idiots that I thought were suspect anyway --24.101.xxx.xx
