Hi all,

I hope you don't mind me asking a few questions within the forum, essentially I am a student studying Computing at Manchester Metropolitan University.

1. I am currently doing some research on 'Property Portals' such as Rightmove and Zoopla. I am trying to find out what tools they currently offer you as an estate agent to help you list properties, value properties and also what other statistics they provide.

I would also like your opinion on the following case study question, I have been set. 'What online and offline tools could be provided to make selling property via property portals easy and helpful for everyday agent life?"

I have only just started this project, but some of my ideas include;
> Numbers of views on each property Ad
> Numbers of people with the property in favourites
> Help valuing properties. But how would they do this?
> The area in which the people looking at the property are from

Anymore ideas would be helpful?

2. And my finally question is, having used property portals on a daily basis do you feel the filters and search options offered are good or could more filters and search options be offered to those searching for property?

I would appreciate any ideas again.

Thanks for reading my post and I hope someone can help me.
