In some advertisement websites (such as Gumtree, Zoopla or Friday AD) they use Property to indicate the category name (as a group).

However they use plural forms for any other categories such as Cars, Jobs, Services, etc.

So why exactly and when we use singular form for Property word if we refer to multiple Properties (as category)?

Is usage of Properties word instead as category name is wrong in this case?

In the sense of 'a thing or things that are owned by sb; a possession or possessions', (Oxford ALD) property is freqently used as a non-count noun.

In the sense of 'a building or buildings and the surrounding land' (OALD), property is used as a count noun.
