An open house can make or break a home sale by providing potential buyers with the opportunity to visit the home and giving sellers the chance to highlight the home's best features. OpenHouseDay came to us with the idea to build a new residential real estate platform designed to bring realtors, home sellers, and home buyers together in a meaningful way.
OpenHouseDay provides unique tools for prospective home buyers to get current open house listings matching their search criteria and map out driving directions to efficiently plan their day of home viewing. Home sellers and realtors can get the most out of their home listing and staging efforts by knowing in advance who is planning to attend and filling their scheduled open houses with motivated home buyers.
The web app utilizes several APIs, including SimplyRETs, MLS (multiple listings service), and IDX broker to pull properties listings with open houses onto the site. All listings on the web app have open houses, and if a user searches for an open house on a day without scheduled open houses, they're directed to local agents using a zip code API. The site also uses the Google Maps API to provide driving directions for open houses.
Multiple User Types
OpenHouseDay provides options for three different types of user registrations with specific features for each user type: home buyers, home sellers (FSBO), and real estate agents.
Home listings feature property details, property images, information on the listing agent, mortgage calculator, and links to Great Schools providing information on the assigned schools.
The OpenHouseDay web app was custom built using a PHP framework and designed to be user-friendly with a sleek, modern look and feel.
