Real Estate/Property product catalog type website
I have Joomla in mind for this project as I have some (limited) experience with this CMS however I am open to suggestions for more suitable platforms/solutions. Essentially I require someone to create the barebones functionality of a real estate property website (article layout customisation, custom fields and searches) that I can then take and add content to (including metadata, design templates, news articles, module/plug in extensions etc) - it seemed an advanced CCK like Seblod could meet my requirements however I am again open to suggestions from the experts.
Custom Article layout - main image swappable with multiple thumbnails, description, price, google map, "email to friend" link, external links etc etc in a custom layout (to be provided).
Custom Search module - ability to search by custom fields i.e. usual real estate type fields (drop down): location, number of bedrooms, price and combinations thereof. Similar to the search module at the top of this page [url removed, login to view] Results then need to be sorted by price/number of bedrooms etc.
Custom "Filter" module - ability to filter search results by specific fields/tags (or however suitable) - to include functionality to add/remove individually applied filters (see example weblink). Similar to the "filter your results" module on mid-left of this page [url removed, login to view]
Article list layout (i.e. articles displayed from search/filter results) - 2 images (one with lightbox gallery showing multiple images on rollover), short description, small "icon" type images. Exact layout requirements will be provided.
Ability for users to Shortlist properties from the listings to be viewed in a seperate "My Shortlist" module on the page.
Creation of custom searches to be linked to "Popular searches" and/or links from image hotspots etc. (i.e. search for all properties with a garden, search for all properties in France etc).
Ability for us to add metadata information to all articles/images etc.
I have a much more detailed specification with layout/content examples for the contract winner.
Future SEO, modification and improvement work would also be requested from the winning contractor priced on a per job basis.
Please contact me with your portfolio and tender with specific reference to my requirements above including an estimation of time to complete the project...
