Facebook's 'Marketplace' lets real estate agents post property listings

Social media giant's new feature includes 'Housing' category
  • Agents can post property listings in Facebook's new "Marketplace."
  • Facebook is featuring Marketplace prominently on its mobile app, signaling "big plans" for the feature, one agent says.

After years of tossing property listings into news feeds and groups, real estate agents finally have a formal way to post them to Facebook. The social media giant has rolled out a marketplace that lets people post all manner of things for sale, including houses.
