Property seekers can now browse hundreds and thousands of listings from U.S. rental site Zumper on Facebook's Marketplace.
The startup announced yesterday that it will bring home rental listings to Facebook Marketplace.
More than 110 million of all Americans now rent their homes, which is the highest percentage in more than 50 years. However, finding an apartment has often been a cumbersome, painful process with poor information about available rental listings. Now, finding the place to call home is even easier with Zumper and Facebook Marketplace.
As of yesterday, in the Facebook app, people in the United States can filter and browse properties listed by landlords and brokers with Zumper, click to view up-to-date details such as price, square footage and pet restrictions, and send an immediate message to set up a tour or start an application.
“We are so excited to announce the partnership between Zumper and Facebook. Zumper has spent the past five years building the most comprehensive rental marketplace in the U.S., and Facebook has long been home to families and friends sharing news, photos and memories. So, it’s only natural that Facebook, in collaboration with Zumper, will now also help people find their physical homes through Facebook Marketplace,” said Anthemos Georgiades, CEO and co-founder of Zumper.
“Starting today, people using Facebook Marketplace in the U.S. will begin to be able to browse and message Zumper inventory that is updated in real-time to ensure accurate availability and pricing.”
For individual landlords, Zumper’s partnership with Facebook is now a leading way to automatically syndicate listings to Facebook by posting to Zumper Pro. Zumper’s large Multifamily clients will also be able to take advantage of this large, new audience.
For renters, Zumper’s website and app, with sister-platform PadMapper, lists more than a million properties available for rent across the United States every month. With customizable alerts and all listings updated in real-time, any Zumper user can always find the newest inventory and be first in line for their perfect apartment with tools like Zumper Select’s white glove service. Now, that’s all at the fingertips of every Facebook user.
