GOLDEN, Colo., May 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeAdvisor, an operating business of ANGI Homeservices (NASDAQ: ANGI), today announced that the company is powering a new way for consumers to seamlessly book a home services appointment through Facebook Marketplace. Through Facebook Marketplace, consumers can search and be matched with service providers who perform a variety of tasks, including HomeAdvisor service professionals. Consumers can then easily communicate and request quotes directly with their matches via Messenger.
"Facebook Marketplace helps businesses reach consumers on a platform they are already turning to for everyday needs, making it easier than ever for service professionals in our network to reach new customers and for consumers to seamlessly hire one of our trusted service professionals for hundreds of tasks, from plumbing and cleaning to home renovations," said Chris Terrill, CEO of ANGI Homeservices.
Prior to being accepted into HomeAdvisor's network, business owners undergo criminal and financial background checks. Since the company's launch in 1999, HomeAdvisor has received millions of project requests from consumers looking for service professionals to help them complete home projects.
"Facebook Marketplace seamlessly bridges the gap between search and social," said Terrill. "HomeAdvisor is excited to be at the forefront of home services, allowing consumers to book home service pros through the world's leading social media platform."
