I am looking for a customized real estate website that can handle both real estate sales and rental.
The business is a one-person operation where the owner's personality sets it apart from the big guys. Hence the site should not have a corporate look or feel, but rather a personalized look that matches the client's personality.
Apart from the typical property listings and property detail pages, the site should also be able to host semi-static information pages with lots of information related to the area.
The client also has about 100 (and counting) small "did you know" tips, which should be displayed at random throughout the site in a dedicated space, kind of like Post-it notes. Most of them are just one or two paragraphs, with an optional picture, others a bit longer, leading to a dedicated page for the full article.
On the front-end, the basic functional requirements are:
- Clear distinction between properties for sales and rental properties
- Properties in both sections should be categorized in a sub-level
- Properties can be both for sale and for rent
- User should be able to search for properties based on characteristics, resulting in a list of properties
- Search engine for rental properties should take desired period into account and list only properties that are available in that period
- Sold properties should have an indication "SOLD"
- Each rental property should have its own availability calendar
- Price for rental property should be clearly marked for each season (multiple low and high seasons, prices per dag/week/weekend/month)
- Price for properties for sale should allow for "lowered" price, showing both the original asking price and the currently lowered price
- Accept downpayments for rental properties through Paypal
- Multi-lingual support. We start out in English, but Spanish will follow next.
- Responsive design
On the back-end, the basic functional requirements are:
- Add, modify and delete properties
- Temporarily disable a property
- For each property, specify characteristics that the search engine can query on; characteristics are different for sale and rental
- Add, delete and reorder property pictures and specify the main picture used in listings and property page
- Easily fill out availability calendar for each property
- Configure downpayment terms for rental properties. Typical example: 50% down, refundable up to 30 days prior to arrival date, 5% booking fee is non-refundable, etc...
- Classify properties in at least 2 levels: Level 1 = for sale, for rent; Level 2 = property type: homes/villas/apartments/condos, land, businesses
- Ability to create semi-static information pages
- Ability to create mini-pages that can be used as post-it-style blocks randomly displayed throughout the site.
I am open to the use of Joomla and third-party real estate tools such as OS Property, as long as it is customizable enough and can be stylized so it doesn't look like anything else out there.
As part of your bid, please include which technologies you would use and why. Please also indicate if any of the technologies would carry a recurring charge. Please keep in mind that after the development has completed, it should be maintainable by someone else, so I prefer established platforms and tools as a basis.
For this project I will need both a designer and developer with excellent English communication skills in English, and the ability to communicate through Skype and/or Google Hangout for daily status updates or functional meetings.
Most of the content is already written and will be made available as soon as a bid is accepted.
