Facebook Marketplace is absolutely the worst place to try to sell real estate online. Why? Because of the enormous number of people sending messages like: Is this available?
Yes. It is available. That’s why it is still listed.
Think about the type of people who scroll their phones on Facebook for hours at a time. They live in a fantasy world. They’ve probably modified that profile picture of themselves.
I’ve posted my properties on Facebook only to get inundated with hundreds of messages that begin with: Is this available?
Then, I reply, with a copied-and-pasted: Yes, it is available. Please visit the website TheLandDepot dot net. At the website, click on “Featured Properties”. All the details are there. Thanks!
At this point, I usually get one of two replies …
First reply: Thanks. (And rarely if ever hear from them again.)
Second reply: How big is the lot? What is the price? is there septic and well and power? Do you finance? (All these questions are answered at the website. I have 42 lots for sale. The price depends on the lot they are interested in buying.)
