NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--letgo, the largest and fastest growing app to buy and sell locally, announced today that tens of millions of people who have already downloaded its free marketplace app can now browse and list housing and other property across the country. The company said this new functionality is rolling out gradually across the marketplace and will be available to all users in the U.S. by the end of the month.
The news marks a significant expansion to what has quickly become the most popular app of its kind. Last fall, the company disclosed that its app had passed 75 million downloads in the U.S. and elsewhere, and that users had already posted more than 200 million secondhand listings, from cars to video games, since it launched in 2015. comScore recently ranked letgo second among the fastest growing apps in America since its inception.
letgo’s intuitive design makes browsing and listing housing and other types of property simple. Users quickly snap a photo and select a few key details to post a space for rent or sale. They can add more photos and details to their listing any time with just a few taps. Users can also chat instantly with each other in the app and easily filter local listings to find exactly what they need. As always, letgo users can view each other’s profiles, ratings and reviews to learn more about who they are chatting with and what others have said about them.
letgo cofounder Alec Oxenford said, “We see this as the natural evolution of a vast and diverse marketplace like ours, especially as we approach the 100M-download milestone. We’ve designed letgo to make it effortless to list what you don’t need and find what you do in your own neighborhood, whether that’s a snowboard, an SUV or a two-bedroom apartment with a view.”
With over 75 million downloads and hundreds of millions of listings, letgo is the largest and fastest growing app to buy and sell locally. Already among the most popular mobile apps in America, letgo’s marketplace is filled with everything from electronics, cars and collectibles to housing, clothing and furniture. The free app makes it easy to list what you don’t need and find great deals nearby on anything you do. Listing something on letgo is as simple as taking a photo thanks to its advanced technology. It is the only app of its kind that can automatically title and categorize an item using artificial intelligence. Users can easily browse local listings, chat instantly in the app, and view each other’s profiles, ratings and reviews. letgo was founded in 2015 by Alec Oxenford and Jordi Castello, with cofounder Enrique Linares joining soon after.
Named among the “Hottest Startups” by Wired and “Best Apps” by Google soon after it launched, letgo’s investors include Naspers, Accel, Insight Venture Partners, New Enterprise Associates, 14W, Eight Roads Ventures, Mangrove Capital Partners and FJ Labs. letgo is headquartered in the Netherlands, with offices in New York and Barcelona.
