Washington Post: New Facebook service aims to make apartment hunting easier

Washington Post: New Facebook service aims to make apartment hunting easier. “Technology has already transformed the search for an apartment and a roommate along with every other social interaction. Tech companies have been entering the real estate market for a while now, disrupting the traditional method of working with a real estate agent or broker to find a place to live. Before that, Craigslist began connecting renters and owners without agents. Now Facebook, which has more than 2 billion global users per month, has opened its Marketplace to partner with two rental listing services in the United States: Apartment List and Zumper. Both rental listing companies have already integrated their information into Facebook Marketplace.”
