You can list any home appliances you want to sell, set prices, and connect with potential buyers within their local communities. The platform’s built-in messaging system simplifies communication between buyers and sellers, making transactions smoother.

However, buying and selling home appliances on Facebook Marketplace has some disadvantages. Although you may get a variety of listings, the used home appliance may not be in good condition.
