City Living is a real estate web application created for a Cyprus based client. This web application contains nation wide property listing in Cyprus. It also offers services such as property rentals, property repairs, property maintenance, property sales and strata management.
Most of the real estate sector in Cyprus has not used technology as a tool to empower its service offerings. As the majority of the operations are conducted manually problems are faced by the sellers while looking for real estate agents to sell their property at the best price. Similarly, the buyers have to go through the papers and have to call each owner/agent having the property in the locality and the price range they require.
To take care of this challenge, we thought of building a web based system that will automate the entire process of buying and selling properties. Herein we match the specifications of the seller with the requirements of the buyer.
The Client wanted a website that enables administrators to upload residential and commercial units on the website including, floor plans, local maps and amenities.
Key challenges were
- Web application should be generic and easy to use for buyers and sellers of the property
- Real estate agents should be able to manage their listing easily
- Can enable other real estate dealers to use the data in XML/SOAP format to publish information on their website.
