Experience Level: Intermediate
Looking for the possibilities of creating this web based business, its costs, ability to create it, manage and maintain it and the time frame needed for it to be functional as a first phase.

Also after reviewing this e-mail we would like to know if you can be a part of this development and also help maintaining the function of it. If yes, then at which level would you be able to support it and of course what fees would you be looking to secure.

We are looking to create a website that will market property in XXXX and all its regions. The site should be simple to browse through and simple to manage. The objective of the website from a revenue perspective is as follows:
1. Generate revenue from prominent landlords to list their properties
2. Generate revenue from by selling advertisement space due to solid traffic to the website
3. To become a main portal or data housing for property listing in XXXX for Landlords, brokerages and developers.
4. To attract clients to call/use our services of finding suitable property to rent or purchase.

The first phase of the business/website is to be able to:
1. Insert by a form of software approx. 15,000+ property listings and their information and photos.
2. To be able to hold standard information for each listing i.e. no. of bedrooms, baths, size, location, etc. and of course about 10 low and mid resolution photographs(approx. 50kb to 150kb per photo)
3. The ability for clients to leave feedback about certain property.
4. The ability to sell sponsorship, advertisement space on the website i.e. top, lower and side banners.
5. To have a well studied search criteria so that viewers find what they are looking for faster(I would assume that this would derive from the information criteria added about each property)
6. To have a classified section for personal clients to add their properties, but also to be controlled in a manner that does not hinder our image and other properties listed.

The site in truth should not look complex at all, in fact the less information on the homepage the better. It is all on what is happening in the back that really means everything. Something as how simple google looks when you go on their site, but once you hit search your provided with what you have asked.

I would like for you to take a look at some websites to understand more what it is we are looking for. I am sure once we are able to initiate that we would like to go ahead we will be able to go through the main details of the final outcome should look and feel like.

A website that I extremely like based on how it is managed is
this website in fact is somewhat what I am trying to get to with regards to the XXXX business site. It in itself is a property website based in the UAE and does the same activity that I am looking for us to do. Though I do believe its homepage is crowded.
Also within this site there are important factors to look at besides the fact of how the site is displayed and managed. such as the way they charge agents and sell sponsorship.

Another website though it is a car sales website that I like is
this website looks nice in the seance that it is straight forward and the search engine in it is extensive. It also looks like it didn't take that much to put together but again it works effectively.

Also another website though it is to do with boats and yachts that I like this website is also a little crowded but very effective in indulging the viewer to look at the boats presented at first.

Currently in XXXX there are no such website that really does what we are looking to do, but there are some companies that serve as brokerages that do own websites with good amount of property listed. ie. Better Homes , Coreo Qatar, Al Asmakh real estate...

Most people simply use classified sections in XXXX as another means to searching for property. in this seance I am not afraid of this competition since it seems extremely hard to find something specific that you are looking for i.e. and
I have also attached their method of selling advertisement space via a presentation. I have to admit I do like the way it is presented and it is clear it is on the basis of traffic generated towards the site.

All of which would effectively become part of our listing clients. The objective is to create a website that will hold most of the real estate in XXXX as a means for viewers to be guided to know what is out there and how to go about looking at it and then renting it. Again property finder is a very good benchmark to look at.

My main concerns are as follows:
1. The cost of developing such a website with all the information
2. The ease of adding the information in, in a fast easy and effective way by no more than one individual at first. I assume a backdoor software. I believe this is my MAIN point of concern. where as I believe that the management of the site will be done via this aspect. I believe that if the criteria is extensive then once the search by the viewer is done they will receive a nice outcome result. I noticed this site if it helps 3. The speed of the website and its response rate.
4. The cost of maintaining and managing such a website.
5. Once the advertisement space is sold, the ability to feed it in and making sure it is controlled correctly.
6. Cost is extremely important to me since I do not want that we spend a lot of money on the website at first until we are able to pick up.

I hope that we would be able to speak soon, I also hope you would be able to provide me with positive news on the above mentioned.

Kind regards,

M Itani
