How To Get Listings From Facebook

Facebook Marketing is a great way to get more leads and listings. In this training, I’ll show you how to publish your ads, create custom audiences, and track your results.

Step 1: Set Up Your Facebook Page

If you already have a Facebook page for your business, you can skip to Step 2. If not, complete the steps below.

  1. 1
    Login into Facebook. Then, open the Create a Page builder.
  2. 2
    Enter your page name. Most people name it “John Doe Realtor” or something like that. That’s what I recommend. Other people name it something like “City Real Estate”, “Great City Homes”, etc.
  3. 3
    Select the Category as “Real Estate Agent”, “Real Estate”, or “Real Estate Company.
  4. 4
    Enter your description. Here is an example: “John Doe is a Real Estate Agent in Anytown US. He works at ABC Realty and specializes in helping buyers and sellers navigate the process to reach their goals.”
  5. 5
    Upload your profile picture (this should be the headshot image you use professionally).
  6. 6
    Add a cover photo. This can be a picture of you in front of a house, a picture of a home you’ve listed, a local landmark, or a map of your area.
  7. 7
    Hit submit to create your page.
  8. 8
    Go to the “About” Section and update your information. You’ll want to add your phone number, website (if applicable), Business Hours, etc.

Your page is set up! Let’s continue to the next step.

Step 2: Set Up Your Ads Manager

First log in to your Facebook account.

Then, click on the link below to visit the Facebook Ads Manager

Facebook Ads

If you’ve already set up an Ads Manager, you’ll be brought to your Ads Manager Dashboard and you can move to the next step.

If you haven’t set it up yet, simply follow the steps to set up your Facebook Ads Manager, then go to the next step.

Step 3: Build Your Facebook Ad Campaign

At this point, your Facebook Page and Ads Manager should be completely set up.

Important Note: All Real Estate-related ads MUST be placed into the Special Housing Category. However, if your Facebook Ads Manager is new, you will not likely see the option to place your ad into the Housing category.

You will need to follow the steps in the video below, build your ad and submit it to Facebook for review as a regular ad. 

Facebook will then reject your ad because it’s real estate related (this usually takes 15 minutes or less), and then you will be given the option to place it in the Special Housing Category. At that point, your ad will be approved. 

Simply follow the instructions in the videos below with the step-by-step process and you’re good to go.
