Back in May, independent estate agents Carman Friend entrusted the design and build of their brand new site to us. Of course, we were more than happy to oblige.

The fresh new site went live at the start of September and the result was really something to be proud of. A property management WordPress site quite like no other – we’ve had some great feedback and thought it was about time we spill the beans.

Features to shout about

So, what exactly is so special about this site? Well, the UI is ultra up-to-date and super sleek, just take a look for yourself…

Visit Website

On top of that,¬†it’s got some really unique features which make it stand head and shoulders above the competition. Keep reading to discover how we do property sites here at Limely.

An incredibly functional property search

Search for your dream home by entering your desired postcode or address – a list of locations will appear in real-time as you type.

You can also search by minimum and maximum bedrooms and price, as is to be expected with any modern property search. To avoid getting your hopes up, you can tick the ‘exclude sold STC’ box to remove any homes which are already going through the motions.

Specifically new builds

More of a new build kind of person? With the Carman Friend website, you can search for your future dwellings under the ‘New Home’ section, removing any chance of stumbling across a previously-owned property.

It’s all in the detail

Once you’ve completed your search criteria, you’ll notice that we’ve included a little badge in the left-hand corner of each property images. It lets you know how many images and videos come with each individual property description. You can also alter the radius which your search covers. A row of icons will tell you how many bedrooms, bathrooms and reception rooms each property contains before you even click through.

Integration with Expert Agent property management

Never heard of Expert Agent before? It’s a cloud-based property management system that over 2000 estate agents in the UK use. If you have heard of it, you’ll know how crucial it is in keeping your property site competitive, fresh and up-to-date.

Room-specific images

Let us know if you’ve ever seen this before on an estate agent site because we certainly haven’t! As you’re reading through your chosen property’s page, you can view an image of each room next to its individual description. No more guessing which photo in the gallery is ‘Bedroom 1’ and which one is ‘Bedroom 2’. Clever, right?

Stamp duty calculator

Make life easier by¬†calculating how much stamp duty you’ll be paying – without having to leave the site and Google it. You’ll be given the option to calculate stamp duty when you’re viewing a property, based on its individual price. And yes, it’s all up-to-date with the new Budget announcement.
