How to avoid Ad Rejection:

Make sure you post one item in one ad. For example, in Property: every house, plot, apartment, portion, room, etc. should be posted in a separate ad with the proper title format (Size | Type | Area | Neighborhood | City), detailed description, appropriate price and real pictures. 

Advantages of posting different ads:

  • You will attract the right buyers and your ad will get more responses
  • You will avoid confusion and sell 5X faster
