A Drupal Based Real Estate Website
The client wanted us to develop a website to display properties placed for auctions on different websites. He wanted a real estate website which includes scraping from 5 sites and features like radius search, advanced property search, Auctions listing, property details of auctions, auction start date etc. He also wanted a mobile application for the same
We have made the site based on Drupal 7 with various contributed modules and custom modules. The contributed modules include Views, Ctools, Rules, Triggers etc. We have written our own custom modules to scrap the data from various sites like Clive Emson, Auctionhouse etc. We have also set cronjobs to automate the scraping at certain intervals. We added suitable functionality to allow customers do following -
- View some information about you and your company on the homepage along with some auction properties.
- View the commercial and residential properties on the website by selecting their preferences.
- Filter their search for property based on location, Price, Property type, Auction house and Sale date
- Click on upcoming auctions to view the list of auctions to be held.
- Click on Next auction to view the soonest next auction to be held.
