Property Admin Portal - Version 0.5

Property Admin Portal is an easy to use content management solution that allows real estate agents to manage their properties on a MySQL database. The Property Admin Portal solution comes in two parts:

  • A "front-end" public web site that allows perspective buyers to search for properties matching their search criteria, and that allows vendors to login and check the existing sales status of their property. Click here to see a template of the "front-end" public web site (opens in a new web browser).
  • A "back-end" private password protected web site (the Property Admin Portal), which allows the real estate agent to effortlessly manage their properties database. Click here to see (and use) the "back-end" Property Admin Portal (username: demo , password: demo) (opens in a new web browser).

The Property Admin Portal in more detail

The Property Admin Portal allows real estate agents to perform the following functions effortlessly:

  • add a new property to the properties database
  • edit existing properties on the properties database
  • delete existing properties from the properties database
  • search for properties by various search methods, including a search by house number and post code, vendor's name, vendor's e-mail address and unique reference number

The properties database stores each property with the usual property information such as:

  • the full address of a vendor's property (i.e. the house name or number, road, town, county and postcode)
  • details of the vendor's property, including a short description, large description, type of property, price of property, and number of bedrooms
  • a unique property reference number

The properties database also stores each property with the extremely useful vendor information such as:

  • the vendor's contact details including their full name, telephone numbers and e-mail address
  • the vendor's login information (i.e. username and password)
  • the vendor's existing sales status

The result of including extremely useful vendor information within the properties database means that:

  • real estate agent staff are less burdened by vendor's telephone calls and visits to the office because vendors can simply login and check the existing sales status of their property
  • when real estate agent staff are communicating with the vendor, they can easily and rapidly search for the vendor's property (by a number of search methods), and communicate with the vendor accordingly quoting all the information related to the vendor's property as necessary
  • when real estate agent staff are communicating with the buyer or prospective buyer, they can easily and rapidly search for a vendor's property (by a number of search methods), communicate with the buyer accordingly, and if necessary rapidly update the existing sales status of the vendor's property

As far as I am aware, no other property content management solution for real estate agents offers the extremely useful vendor information.

Advantages in using the Property Admin Portal

The Property Admin Portal offers the following advantages:

  • Because the Property Admin Portal and properties database is stored in a centralized location with an Web Host, real estate agent staff can login to the Property Admin Portal from any location with an Internet connection. This means that can real estate agent staff can manage properties from different office locations and even from their home !
  • Because extremely useful vendor information is stored on the properties database, vendors can easily check the sales status of their property. This results in less telephone calls and office visits from the vendor. This means that real estate agent staff can concentrate on other tasks for longer periods of time without interruption.
  • Simple to use with a multitude of search options which are orientated around real life situations such as staff - buyer and staff - vendor communications.
  • Because the property database excepts HTML tags within the property description, you can customise the way your property description appears.

Property Admin Portal Requirements

Property Admin Portal requires the following:

  • Any computer (Apple Mac or PC) running any operating system (Windows, MacOS, Linux, Unix) with a web-browser.
  • An Internet connection (dial-up or permanent). It is recommended you use a permanent Internet connection such as ADSL or Cable.
  • A Web Host which supports PHP4 and a MySQL database. I recommend ICD Soft who support a multitude of web hosting features in addition to PHP4 and MySQL. ICD Soft charge a nominal fee of $60 per year to host a web site.
