Project Overview

This platform was developed to simplify hourly, daily or monthly rent finding process. Real estate owners can take pictures of their property, add catching description and list an offer specifying the rent conditions. Students, tourist and business owners will easily find a longing that perfectly matches their requirements, applying numerous filters, checking different price categories and various locations.  

Problem

Out-of-service search engine

Users encountered problems during the accommodations search, as not all listings were displayed in search results.

Obsolete UI  

Outdated design affected the application usability and its user-friendliness. Listings publishing and services ordering were constantly conducted with the help of the customers support team.

Non-competitive functionality 

The availability only of the basic functionality limited the application competitiveness in the rental market.

Legacy technologies 

It was simply impossible to fix defects with the existing functionality, improve it or develop new important features.

Solution

We have implemented robust search, added filter attributes and improved the search results displaying. Users can now use simple Google Search, which allows to avoid location mistakes, save search queries and receive relevant notifications.

Having carefully analyzed users’ queries to customer support, our team has developed an up-to-date mobile responsive platform with the intuitive interface and crisp design. Users can now easily create, manage listings and order paid services for ads depiction.

To boost the application competitiveness, we have studied problems and needs of the target audience, conducted thorough competitors analysis  and implemented a set of advanced functionality:

  • Messaging between users
  • Several notification types
  • Personal agent page with all important information and listings
  • Registration of different user types
  • Adding to Favorites
  • History of viewed listings.

Using top-notch technologies, we have created a new real estate web-platform, open for limitless improvements and updates. In addition, we have achieved high application performance, utilized the best-matching MS SQL Server 2014 and migrated all existing listings and users’ profile information.
