Using iProperty I was able to deploy a feature rich website.
New Joomla users will find this component more than adequate out of the box.
iProperty offers a running start to those who have challenging project requirements
My project was quite involved and I had to make extensive customizations to complete the job.
Getting the website to appear like the design comp was a breeze. The component is well architected from a file and database standpoint and most devs should feel comfortable working with it.
Here I am, 6 months after the initial purchase (3 months after deployment). The site works great - I am implementing robust features including MLS IDX, custom user interfaces for quick search and multiple templates for the different types of listings we have in our system. [in-house listings, MLS IDX listings and rental units]
The customizations are progressing nicely because Tim and Vinny's code is clean and easy to extend.
I highly recommend the iProperty product to those looking for a long term solution for their real estate website.
