BPP Newsletter: November 2019
A few months ago, Homesnap partnered with Facebook Marketplace to make it simple —and free—for agents to showcase homes for rent on Facebook Marketplace and receive exclusive leads, and the results are in. So far, Facebook Marketplace has sent over 56,000 leads on rentals via Homesnap to agents, a 500%+ increase in leads in launched markets.
Homesnap is now working with MLS partners across the country — on an opt-out or opt-in basis— to offer this exciting, free program for all rentals. 22 MLSs have launched, with many more in queue. Flyer here.
The graph below shows the increase in leads in Pittsburgh and Omaha since launch.
The BPP Grows in Texas

“Our Association Leaders recognize the importance of REALTORS® staying relevant in this ever-changing real estate industry. Our partnership with the Broker Public Portal will provide accurate, up-to-date information to consumers while routing any leads back to the listing Broker” commented Lindsey Martinez, AE of South Padre Island Board of REALTORS. “Thank you BPP for empowering our members and giving them an industry-friendly alternative!”
