Drawing on our accredited user-centred design process, detailed persona research fed into the design and features chosen to support users’ property decision-making process.
The advanced search engine is capable of indexing over a million properties, and can rapidly return pages filtered by location (geo-search), price, rooms, and other features; these direct users towards carefully designed property profiles, featuring high-quality images. The technical build is robust, and can support future growth, using a hosting infrastructure with load balancers, auto-scaling, and a continuous integration framework.
The portal is packed with new, advanced technical features, as a unique differentiator in their competitive market. By pulling open-source data from Yelp, Eventbrite and the Government, the portal can also analyse surrounding schools, transport links, and events; integration with a third-party API also allows us to show relevant house-sold prices and trends. Combined, these features help customers to make more informed decisions about their next home.
