Nested Property is a new on-line portal for self managing landlords to advertise and manage their properties on-line. The new service offers many benefits of additional property services and property advertising on other well known websites. Vibe were asked to design and develop the new site to meet the brief, with features of user sign up, property listings, e-commerce and content management.
Vibe designed the new website around the Nested branding, and following the preferred style and colour scheme as specified in the project brief. Aimed at two user groups, the website had to appeal to both prospective tenants and landlords, and so the design focuses on these key audiences, highlighting selling points to each as required throughout the site. Landlords are able to register on-line, and purchase a property listing via an e-commerce payment gateway. Upon successfully processing the listing fees, the site provides users with the facility to upload their own property details for the listing, along with additional add-on services.
Tenants can search the property listings on this site, specifying their preferred location and searching for property on the site within their specified area. Tenants are also able to use their search criterion to create property alerts, which is an automated email alert tool that emails details of properties that are uploaded that meet part of their specified criterion.
The site administration includes a fully content managed back-end system, allowing the administrator to populate the site content, update services, pricing and moderate property listings when they uploaded or changed by registered landlords.
