Are you an agency?
No, we are not an agency and we don't represent anyone or any listings on our site. All we do is providing a user-friendly, 100% free real estate listing site for home sellers, real estate agents, private landlords, commercial property managers to market their properties online and for house hunters and renters to find their homes through this site.
Do I need to register?
You only need to register if you want to post your real estate ad on FindMyRoof.com. Your email address and cellphone number are required to complete your registration. We will send a verification code to your cellphone for you to activate your account, and email you a link for us to verify your email address. Without both verifications, we will have to close your account within a week. If you don't have a cellphone, you could email us and give us your home phone number, and we will gladly give you a call to verify you.
Why do you need a cellphone verification requirement for sign up?
Your new account with FindMyRoof.com has to be verified with your mobile phone number and email address.
This step is to ensure that everyone posting on our site is a legit poster, and prevent fraud.
We will not send you unsolicited text message or share your phone number with any third party.
How to post my ad?
Click on "Place an ad" located on top of the screen and follow the instructions. Once your ad is posted, you can access it anytime through your account to update or remove it.
Why do I want to hide my address?
We recommend you to hide your property address to protect your identity.
Since your property is advertised online, anyone with Internet connection will be able to copy your information and repost a fake ad on some other sites.
Although we do our part to make sure that FindMyRoof.com is free of scammers, other websites may not, and are beyond our control.
So, by hiding your actual address, you can better protect yourself on the web.
How long will my ad stay "live" on FindMyRoof.com?
Technically your ad will stay "live" for a period of 60 days once it is posted on FindMyRoof.com. During that period, you can remove your ad earlier if your property has been taken/sold. You will be able to extend your ad one week before the expiration date.
An email reminder will be sent to you then.
How to update/remove my ad?
Log in to your account first and then you will be directed to "My ads" page. Click on the "Edit" link to update your ad or "Remove" link to delete your ad.
In general, follow these steps to update your ad:
- Log in first
- Click on "Edit" on the ad that you want to update
- Click on "Update ad" function on the right hand corner of your ad

How to renew my ad?
You will have the option to extend your ad one week before its expiration date. We will send an email reminder to you during the renewal period. The email will have a link for you to extend your ad for another 60 days period or until you remove it.
All ads are running in 60-day cycle. We will eliminate old ads every cycle, which means unless you extend your ad, we may remove it when it is up to the 60-day period. There will be no charge for extending your ads and literally we will let you run your ad until the property is sold/taken. Just be sure to manage your ad through your account, or we will remove it when it expires.
How to update my flyer?

Sometimes your browser "caches" the old version of your flyer and the updated information will not show up on the screen unless you "refresh" your browser or close and open a new browser to see the updated changes for your flyer.
