Search Homes: Most important page. Probably the best thing to do is to check out http://www.compass.com, http://www.zillow.com/homes and http://www.homely.com.au/buy, although I'm not of huge fan of homely.com's search feature. Besides all the search features, we will need a save search link/button and a link/button to view saved homes, which will appear on this same page. Sort options. Inquire/Schedule showing button & form. Number of results. Also, several custom graphics. Split screen with map being bigger and list of homes to the right of the map with property detail info, picture, address link to details page. Google map with have custom draw feature, so need a button for that. Map markers, for markers with more than one property in the same location, we need a marker with number inside of it. Info windows pop ups with a picture and some property information, needs to account for locations with multiple properties. Need also an icon for saved homes and one for hide home. When link is clicked to view details, if user is signed in, details slide onto page. If not signed in, a join/sign in modal will pop up.
Home Page: Large picture (rotates) with search input and 2 radio options, "For Sale" and "What's My Home Worth?" Below top part of the page, "Featured Communities" that are some sort of photo or thumbnail, 3-4 across that represent a community, should have hover effect. Also, a "Latest News" from the blog, ""Testimonials" and 3-4 across, circle/thumbnail type ads for "Single Story Homes", "Luxury Properties" & "Open House Map". As for a brand/logo, we don't have one yet, please design one or just use text "PhoneSloan". Footer to have pattern background, with arrow image/link to go back to top. Needs to at least have links to internal pages, social media icons, our contact info.
Blog Page: blog articles with a picture, category, author, date published, number of comments, pagination. Same header, navigation and footer as on home page.
Blog Detail: blog title, blog detail, author, time/date published, number of comments, comments, comments form, tags. Same header, navigation and footer as on home page. See notes in websites list above for example of a side nav I liked.
Property Details: Can only be viewed if use is logged in. If not logged in, join/sign in modal pop up and background color is blurred or darker color. On this page it will be a lot of details about the property, photos, map, streetview, Inquiry/Showing request form. School information, neighborhood, information, 3 thumbnails of similar listings for sale, 3 thumbnails of similar listings that sold recently, price history table, icon to save property and icon to hide property. Ability to share on social media, print, mortgage calculator
Community Pages: That's 5! I have several more, guess, we can talk about that later...
