Your Listings on Facebook

Facebook now allows users to create dedicated “pages” for businesses, products, brands, etc. With more than 20 million people connecting with Facebook fan pages every day, it is a must have for businesses to promote their brand and connect with their audience. With our Show My Listings App, members can easily create a great-looking, lead-generating, automated Facebook Business Page to display their listings.

The Show My Listings App on Facebook, provided by HAR.com, allows REALTORS® to easily display and promote their listings on their Facebook page. With the Show My Listings app, agents no longer need to manually post each of their listings on Facebook. Our goal is to help our members attract and drive leads on Facebook.

You can promote your Facebook Business Page by:

  • Inviting your friends on Facebook
  • Including a link on your newsletter or your website,
  • Promoting a link on your printed marketing material
  • Embedding a Facebook ‘Like Box’ Widget on your website / blog
  • Promoting your page on other social sites (e.g. LinkedIn)
  • Using Facebook Social Ads

It is Simple and Here is How it Works

It is a two-step process: first you will need to create a Facebook business page. Then you will need to add the Show MyListings app to your business page on Facebook.

Step 3 – From the results, select ‘Facebook Pages.’
Step 4 – In the top right hand corner, click on the button that reads ‘Create Page.’
Step 5 – From the options provided, select ‘Local Business or Place.’
Step 6 – Select ‘Real Estate’ from the category menu and fill out the required fields.
