In March 2018 Landchecker added Commercial property listings to there platform, What i tried to do with the design was allow the user to get the core information that Landchecker provides, that being overlay and zoning details in the interactive map but also be able to see the listing details at the same time.
We interviewed potential users to see what information would be most beneficial to them. What we came up with was the ability to see high definition images of the property and switch to google street view so they could see the surrounding area. Another key detail was the ability to save auction days and times directly to there personal calendar so they would not miss the important day.
A feature with listings that Landchecker has is the ability to have a permanent sold board after the listing has sold, what this means is anytime that a property is sold the listing agent will have there branding and profile attached to it until the next time it is for sale/sold. This was a huge selling point to agents as they loved the extra amounts of exposure and has helped them receive more leads.
A nice problem that i came across while designing this features was adding another set of filters to the platform that already had over 50 layers and filters and making them all fit in nicely. The listings section of the menu was introduced with 5 main categories that the properties would be listed as i made sure that the colours chosen stood out over the overlays and zones that are made from fluro and very contrasting colours.
Getting the agent leads is the most important thing, the more leads they receive the more listings they want to add to the platform so we needed to make sure that the user can get through to the agent as easy and direct as need be. To do this we decided that we would create a form that allows the user to not only get a quick request by ticking the check boxes that relate or if they have a bit more time there is a message box that they can leave a more detailed question.
Listings also has been created with mobile in mind. From research we found that users are more likely to look at property listings on the move either on commutes or when winding down like in bed. Although Landchecker is only a web app at the moment it has been made in the mind set that it will be turned into a native app one day.
