Real Estate Features We Implement
Below are a set of features we implement to help you optimize the real estate product user experience.
Map searchMap search allows users to perform more efficient search queries so they won’t miss any listings
Smart single input searchA finely-tuned search engine allows users to quickly find any object without thinking about proper filters
Access to MLS Listings
More than 600 MLSs
In the USA, there are more than 600 MLSs. If you want to display some real estate listings on your website, you have to deal with each MLS separately. Handling all of this data on your own can be a nightmare.
IDX 3d party providers
There are many companies, providing IDX aggregated access to different MLSs. They are a perfect fit for small projects with Wordpress websites. However, when your business grows, you need more flexibility and control over your listings feed. In this case, you have to set up your own IDX server.
Own IDX Engine
Custom-tailored listings feed
Our CloudCondo Engine allows us to combine multiple MLSs and create a unified custom listing feed. We spent many hours digging through MLSs so that you don’t have to. No more pain in interacting with MLSs.
Property as a location object
Despite all common property features, there is also a coordinate attribute. This allows us to work with all properties as points on the map and easily find out which properties are in which areas.
No more address typos
Real estate information is user-generated, so often typos and wrong values appear in property parameters. However, property coordinates are very accurate attributes so we can perform location searches even if display addresses have errors.
Visual data representation
Property location data and map visualization provides a more interactive search and filtering experience.
Most people primarily use real estate apps for their search which is why maps have become a required feature that users expect.
Smart Search Engine
One search input
Modern users are used to a simple search experience like Google’s. Now, real estate websites have to provide the same one-input search feature. Reduced fields create a better user experience.
Real estate databases have many object types: properties, buildings, cities, counties, states and zip codes. As the number of objects grows, searches require fine-tuning for high relevancy across results. This is not as simple as it may sound.
Governments and other organizations are becoming more open and beginning to share a lot of information. This creates new opportunities and reduces the cost of building many features that were not previously feasible.
USA Government Open Data portal is the largest source of open information. You can find location boundaries, census data, crime stats and more through the site.
