Problem Identification

Inevitable real-estate industry has always been a problem for many market aggregators. Apart from that, pricing a home is another challenge faced by the seller that sometimes leads to profitless outcomes. The client contacted us with the clear vision of building a property search and real-estate app which directly connects sellers to the appraisers and helps them determine the price of their property.

  • Equipped with search box with advance filters
  • Lead tracker for each property posting
  • Devising augmented and virtual reality for advanced property view
  • Real-time interaction with estate agents

Feasibility Study

In discussion with the client, it has been observed that there is a business requirement of a hybrid mobile app that can work as a complete digital solution for sellers to make property posting easier and cheer up asset valuation. In order to design the app as per the client's necessity, we went through all the levels of expertise and required essential components such as interface, map integration and other features.

  • Geo-tagging properties
  • Syncing with MLS
  • Backed with virtual live-in tour
  • Push notifications to the property evaluator about new listings
  • Allow estate agents to find new property listings filtered by location in one tap

User research

User research plays an essential part in intensifying user experience in a more determined way. By carrying out analysis, we gained an understanding of consumer behaviours, needs and identified a problem which can be resolved by launching a state-of-the-art property solution.

Product discovery workshop

Conducting a product discovery workshop is one of the best ways to kick-start the mobile app development process in an effective manner. The discovery workshop helps the project development team to find out everything about a to-be-developed solution which mainly involves a customer-oriented approach, practical insights, product’s vision and functionalities. Additionally, the workshop also enables the team to gain clarity in examining the business and market situation.

During the workshop, the project development team attentively listened to the client's requirement and what features they specifically wanted to employ in their real-estate app. Having a clear vision about the project is significant to envision a profitable solution. Towards the end of the workshop, our team gathered all the technical requirements and created a project plan which was the outline of the free-hand structure of the project.

Competitor Analysis

Real-estate is one of the highly competitive industries at the moment. Carrying out the market inspection helped the team understand the idea to a world-class mobile solution that will elevate the real estate industry.

The Challenges

Breezing through the mobile app development without coming across any roadblock is almost impossible. Either it is core or less technical, the challenge is there. While incorporating some lucrative features in the app, our team of developers came across a few set of issues which are

  • Integration of virtual reality for 3D real-estate tours
  • Seamless management of admin panel
  • Allow sellers to request a free property analysis report
  • Filtered lead generation mechanism to get noticed by potential realtor
  • Sellers to be verified from admin
  • Multi-lingual support system

Final Outcome

After understanding the future functionalities, we documented the process flow of the app development and presented it along with the wireframes to our client. In addition, we refined the ideas of employing the tech stack and how to integrate required features in the app.

  • Geo-location tagging
  • Allow agents to manage all the property postings from the app itself
  • Establish effortless communications between seller and appraiser
  • Admin backend to manage agents/ appraisers
  • Easy to manage leads by admins
  • Advanced map integration
