Facebook expands its Marketplace section with housing rentals
From TechCrunch - November 9, 2017

Facebook today announced its expanding its Marketplace listings section to include hundreds of thousands of housing rentals in a move that seems clearly designed to take on Craigslist. While users before could post their own apartment listings to this section, Facebook says its now partnering with sources like Apartment List and Zumper to pull in listings.

The company will also work directly with brokers, agents and other property managers to fill out the expanded housing section.

In addition, searchers will be able to filter the housing listings via a number of options, like location, price, rental type, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, pet-friendliness and more.

Meanwhile, those who want to post their listings to the site can now do so using 360-degree photos.
