MarketPlace allows people with any kind of available area to make a listing and rent it out. Focusing on unusual areas and luxe locales, the service currently has over 775 listings companies can use for purposes such as team training and meetings. There are a wide range of spaces, including everything from heliports to baseball fields and historic housing.
