Real Estate plugin released

    My plugin for real estate, Great Real Estate, has been released and is now available for download at WordPress.org Extend / Plugin Directory:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/great-real-estate/.

    This first version contains a lot of features, but can be configured fairly simply from the start. The main premise of this first version is to display an agent’s own listings in a nice format, without custom html. But it also integrates a photo gallery (from NextGen Gallery), videos (from wordTube), panoramas (from FPP-Pano), Google maps, downloads, and RSS feeds to sites such as Google Base, Trulia, Zillow, and My Yahoo!.

    I’m working on detailed user documentation, and that will be added to the Great Real Estate plugin homepage in the coming few days.

    Hopefully this will be helpful to the folks who have been looking for a WordPress plugin to easily display their listings.

    I’d love to hear your feature requests and feedback!

    Roger

    Sweet. I’m going to check it out. I belong to a web design group and there are cries for this kind of thing on a nearly weekly basis.

    Do you have a demo online?

    @jbrndt – I don’t know that much about the car biz. Not sure it’s that similar to real estate, but feel free to elaborate.

    @enrico_34 – Are you selling hotels? As in commercial real estate? If so I’m open to accommodating that, but you’ll need to tell me what information is different and what is the same.

    @enrico_34

    no, am not selling them.
    Just need to insert room prices by: nr of nights/nr of people/room type. It should be just a hotel information, with no possibility of booking, but all other information.

    @enrico_34 – I think I get it. One room type per page, or more than one? B&B type of hotels, weekly rentals, that sort of thing? If you can point me at a sample site set up the way you like – or close to it – that would help.

    (And, just in case we are straying from the forum guidelines, would you mind sending me an email? You’ll find an email link on my site in the sidebar.)

    I can think of a way to make this plugin work for a few different property types. What you’re looking for is very much related. We just need to get all the parameters. In the meantime, you can use the plugin to indicate a rental if you like, but it doesn’t specify the rental period at present. In the USA it’s typically assumed to be monthly, but I believe other countries such as Australia and the U.K. go by the week.

    I would think you could use it/modify it for anything that is rented out by the day, week, month, whether it’s a bed and breakfast, a room for let, a time share, whatever the case may be. I can’t wait until I can get time to play around with it. 😉

    And in the U.S., vacation rentals (motels, cottages, beach houses, B&Bs) go by the day and week; long term rentals (rooms in a house, dorms, apartments [flats to you Europeans], homes, etc.) obviously by the month.

    Great!

    I am interested to use this for hotels, like enrico_84….any news?

    Yes, functionality to handle hotels and vacation rentals will be added… it may not be the very next release, but it is on the roadmap.

    Roger

    This is a great post and will be invaluable for many wordpress users like myself. I will certainly lookout for the next release, especially if it can incorporate rentals, as I specialize with entertainment people.
    hope it gos well, can’t wait to try it.
    Mike.

    Hi Roger

    Looks good – I’m checking it out.

    Cheers

    Roger, does the plugin include MLS integration? If not, do you have a good way of including MLS searches on your site?

    @rogertheriault

    On my own site I just use a custom template that frames my Florida Association of Realtors (FAR) MLS search page; it really depends on what your MLS, or local board, or your broker, provides.
