PROJECT CHALLENGES

Today, most real estate transactions are carried out using the internet, where people interested in selling, buying and renting real estate provide their data online. A few years ago, when there were hardly a handful of real estate rental websites, real estate agents tried to solve this problem by creating their own searchable databases, but they were confronted with high operational costs, measured in both time and money.

The company had maintained its business through an online real estate portal and was confronted with a certain number of problems and came to Eastern Enterprise to find a software solution. Through this process, the company took on its operational challenges and also improved functionality, allowing landlords to easily place advertisements and potential tenants to sift thousands of rents from private landlords, real estate agents, investors, and rental agents.
