Intellectual Property, the top-ranked Joomla real-estate component, is about to get even better.
We're about to release version 3.3.2 of the best component for property management firms, estate agencies and Joomla property portals. There's a bunch of new enhancements, including faster searching, a new advanced search / map search view, and the ability to upload your property listing photos to Amazon S3, which will make your responsive site even faster with Amazon's edge hosting locations for images.
The new advanced search view functions more intuitively, loading ALL properties into the map with the use of marker clusters and letting users change their zoom and viewport location to filter listings. There's a slide in drawer that offers filters for price range, sqft, beds and baths, and you can also filter by category. Markers are color coded by their property category to make it easy to tell what's what.
We also created a new "ZSearch" module designed to go front and center of your site, emulating the look and feel of the top property portal on the web-- Zillow. Users will be able to search with the tools they are familiar with, and find properties quickly by street address, subdivision, city, zipcode or keyword.
Stay tuned and check in with us soon-- IProperty just keeps getting better!
