THE CHALLENGE

Larger cities and locales have zone specific realtors. But not many of the house hunters come in touch with the right properties, brokers or agents who can help them out with the desired properties at the best rates. Well it’s not the end, even the sellers’ face problems in selling their properties at its maximum price.

Our client identified a gap between buyers and sellers and an unpleasant dent in the prevailing real estate applications. To make the process hassle free he decided to tackle the inconvenience and with this ideology hoffr came into existence. An app where buying and selling can become as easy as a pie.

CLIENT GOALS

Our client wanted to expand the real estate market by providing users a convenient and secure mobile application platform for buying/selling all the types of properties like home, commercial properties through online auction and a system to keep track on their entire processes.

After identifying the primary objective of this project, a simple brief was taken forward and defined further to create prototyping and wireframe testing for both the iOS and Android platforms. After constructing the prototypes all areas of ambiguity that could come early on in a project were resolved.

DEVELOPMENT

Then the project was taken forward to another stage of development. Where we have developed an online auction platform for hoffr users where anyone can buy property and list their property for either sale OR rent.

Our solution included the following features:

  • Registration module : User can register through their Facebook account only so that hoffr can make sure the user is verified and a genuine user.
  • Payment module : We are taking payment when user wants to list their property through In app Purchase. Other than that, they will settle the payment for property out of the system
  • Search module : This is for searching properties on various criterions.
  • Auction module : Interested buyers can make offer on the property, can chat with buyer/seller in order to do negotiation.

THE RESULTS

Well planned real estate app ensured a better user experience that was highly buyer and seller focused. Through meticulous customer journey planning, we were able to ensure that the app reduces the complexities, save time and money of users in the long run thereby helping them to discover great properties on the go.
