The best investment on earth is earth, said by a renowned real estate investor Louis J. Glickman back in 1957. Day by day, this quote is being more firm in an incredible pace. The global real estate investment market has grown 15 percent, from $7.4 trillion in 2016 to $8.5 trillion in 2017. This is really huge. As the real estate market is thriving, competition in this industry is also rising. At this point, technology comes to the game. Real estate businesses need to utilize advanced technologies to beat the competition. How? JoomShaper can help you.

Last week we’ve launched Estate, the most advanced real estate website solution ever. The Estate Joomla template is powered by SP Property, our widely popular real estate Joomla extension. To offer modern capabilities, we’ve updated the SP Property component with tons of new features and provided in the Estate package. If you use any other real estate template like Empire or else, you can still get these new real estate features by installing the latest version of SP Property. Here comes SP Property 3.0, the real estate website powerhouse.

Map view with real-time interaction

SP Property 3.0 offers the next-generation property searching system. All the property items added to a site can be pinned and displayed on a live map frame. The map view of the SP Property component presents a map frame along with a property list display. Visitors can drag the map to bring an area to the viewport, and a list of the on-site properties in that area will be displayed. Please check the GIF below to get a better idea.

Visitors can choose either a grid or a list view for the properties on the left.

Also, there is a half-map list layout and a full-map grid layout for you to use in different purposes.

Apply ACL on agents

Site admins can utilize Joomla’s Access Control List (ACL) capabilities to provide the agents custom access to the property site. This enables a registered user to add and edit property items on the site.

SP Property EMI Calculator module

If a property is available to purchase in EMI (equated monthly instalments), agents can display an EMI calculator on the property detail page. This will enable the visitors to calculate the asset EMI amount right on the website for purchasing properties on instalment.
