Our Real Estate web portal is in need of a complete makeover. Here is some information you can work with:
A design for such a portal should consider how to display a search form (for Real Estate, the search forms are fairly extensive) and how to best display listings. A balance between displaying the most listings while still maintaining a clean and appealing look is essential.
To be truly competitive in this contest, it would be wise to take a look at previously mentioned similar websites like Zillow and Trulia, then see how they manage to convey information. Each has flaws, each has positives, and we are eager to see how you manage to find a balance between information density and appealing design.
The design should be built with mobile in mind, preferably something that can be coded into a responsive web design using Foundation or Bootstrap.
We are leaning towards a blue theme, however it would absolutely not hurt to see different color schemes of a single design. Our logo on http://www.realestatechannel.ca is probably what we will stick with, so you may use that and other images on our website to help your design process.
We want to leave the creative aspect to you, but our top needs are:
1. Layout/structure allows for coding into a responsive theme.
2. Displays search & information in a balanced manner.
3. Looks better than the other Real Estate Portals on the web ;)
