When the Victoria Real Estate Board realised it could leverage its listings data to provide a great new open houses service for home buyers, it used Sage to make it a reality.
We worked with the VREB to identify exactly how users would need to use the service and flesh out the required functionality. It was immediately obvious that the two most important features would be a simple yet highly comprehensive search, and printer friendly results. Most home buyers would want to plan to visit a series or open houses and have a print out in their hands for quick reference when visiting them.
Due to the ever change and increasing number of open houses we designed the system using Ajax for immediate responses without the need to refresh the page. With this system in place the user is able to see the results on the page be continually updated in real time.
