The function of the site is to be similar to www.findaproperty.com. Front end the site will offer the following functionality:-
Registration - the site will offer estate agents and service companies such as mortgage, removal etc, the ability to register on the site to advertise their property and or services. Registration will involve choosing between registering as an estate agent, or registering your services, with questions varying between the 2.
For estate agents there will be different levels of registrations ie £50 for 50 properties per month, £100 for 100 properties per month. Properties have a sell by time.
Applying for a services account will be based on areas ie depending on how many areas your details are shown under.
All registrations will be judged by administration before giving access to the site itself. Once admin is happy with the application, the account is activated and an email sent to the applicant telling them their account is now live.
As an estate agent, they will have the ability, once logged in to create their profile, upload their logo, and upload property details and images. Accounts will be on a month by month basis.
Users can then come to the site and search for a property or piece of land. Land searches will be by size. Property searches will be by, buy or rent, type of property, number of rooms, area, price range from and to. The results will show a list of properties and their details, but all agent contact details will be hidden.
A user will have to create an account to view the agents contact details. A use registration will be free. Once logged in, the user can see all the agents details and is able to contact them direct.
The site will show currency in Greek pounds and Sterling. There will also be a live feed showing the exchange rate.
The site will also have constantly rotating banner ads, which are delivered area specific. So we need to have a banner management tool which involves uploading a number of banner ads to, and being able to control the number of times they are delivered, making them inactive when they reach their quota.
The site will have the following admin functions:-
Application management for agents and services
Customer management for user accounts
Category management, so admin can add, remove and edit the categories
Banner ad management
A comprehensive reporting system, to show how many times a house is viewed, how many times a specific search is made, what areas are the most popular, etc etc... ...all these results should be accessible via an excel sheet
