Developing real estate sites -- particularly niche real estate sites that serve a very particular location or housing type -- can be a great challenge. Unlike many other types of web sites, real estate sites must have not only an attractive front end so that users can search for their dream home, but there must be a powerful backend system to handle the management of both old and new property listings. The cost, time, and design challenges of building such a system -- especially the backend tools -- have derailed many a project. But with Epik`s Real Estate platform, we`ve built everything for you! Epik | Real Estate brings you a highly usable, cleanly designed platform inside and out, a platform on which you can base a real estate business.
The well designed homepage and property listing pages offer graphically rich, dynamic dislays of both standard and featured properties. Among the many features immediately visible are:
That`s right! Epik | Real Estate supports user submitted property listings, making your site an ideal destination for the FSBO seller. With more and more sellers looking to save on commission costs, FSBO has become an increasingly popular option for sellers, an option that you can profit from.
The listings on the property listing pages are displayed in a similar fashion to those on the homepage. Those users shopping for homes can easily mark certain listings as their favorites and access them in their user dashboard later on.
The property detail page is where users can see the actual property in all it’s glory. The property lister may add as many photos as desired, with those photos being automatically displayed in a photo gallery slideshow. Additional details are displayed elegantly and strategically. The agent and/or seller details are displayed with the full contact details and appropriate links. Interested buyers can contact the seller by filling out a simple email form.
A Google map is automatically generated and displayed on the listing page. Properties with similar characteristics can be optionally configured to appear at the end of the page based on various criteria.
The Submit Property Page enables anyone to submit listing to your site, all without even visiting the Dashboard. All registered users can submit listings, they can even register by submitting a listing. We have alo added a time saving feature to our image uploader: now you can select and upload an unlimited number of images that you can sort after submission. Even better, Epik | Real Estate will automatically resize and arrange them as necessary.
Epik | Real Estate gives you the tools to create highly flexible payment plans for users who list properties on your site. You can create recurring billing plans for regular listers, and even category-specific price packages. Of course, Epik | Real Estate supports all major credit cards as well as Paypal.
