I am not a computer person, I was a trainer for real estate agents. 5 years ago with the help of the programmer and my knowlege and ideas in my trade, we have defeloped 3 programs for real estate agents. The software has a few bugs but the partner was departed. Since I cannot get the bugs fixed, I want to start fresh and re-write each program. To start, I will try one of the 3, if sucessful, then the second, and third.
The first software: home evaluation program for real estate agent. The new design and the structure of the program has been in place. I need a programmer to help me to make it work.:
The general purpose is for a real estate agent to do the evaluation of a home and suggest a market price of the seller's home.
Method to do the calculations:
Agent will select a few homes to compare to the Seller's home, the listings (html) and pictures files will be downloaded to the program.
He will then compare features of the seller's home to the listings he has selected, and put a value to each feature.
After comparing all the features of the homes ( $ sum of all the features of Seller's home - $ summ of all features of each listings) and come up with a range of prices, which will be the suggested market value for the seller's home.
Scope of work:
The software is basially a spread sheet program (like Excel). It will perform the basic calculations; download data and other information and save them in different files in the program. Video Clips willl be included explaining some of the functions of the program, and the ability to do a simple presentation/slide show like power point (does not require most of the functions in power point, contents will be included in the program).
The downloaded information can be either inserted in the program automatically, or be retrieved offline instantaneously.
The program will have menu like most window based application: [file], , [tools].... etc.
It has to be able to play the video clips, insert pictures, pdb, doc. and other formats available in the market.
An installation ([url removed, login to view]) will be the final product. It should require a key for activation of program. User's registered name will be shown on the program main screen. Also can to the upgrades or patches through the internet.
Need to test run the software and when completed, a copy of the software coding is required/
Have a complete design requirements documentation upon request (too large to upload)
I can upload the full specifications of the software, the graphic design of the main screen,the formula and the functions of the menus. The template layouts, video clips and ppt slides etc. are all available to be uploaded.My existing software can also be uploaded for referencing too.
Communicating will be an issues. I am in Canada, so time difference might be an issue. I will provide you as much info as possible.
