A client in the real estate sector in South Florida approached TSL with the idea to build a web app that would find the latest information on Florida real estate. The main idea was to present insider information crucial to both Real Estate professionals and potential buyers in a way that would facilitate informed decision-making. The product we created, VMap, is a real estate tool we developed together with our client that is user-friendly for realtors and everyday people to easily find up-to-date data on local Florida properties. The web application visualizes the local South Florida area, using MapBox integrations, and provides unique information to users, such as all school zones for each available property, city plans for upcoming construction projects, and distances to nearby emergency services, parks, religious centers, etc. VMap is now up and running. It is accessible online for Florida users at https://www.vmap.ai/. To compete with pre-existing platforms such as MLS, our clients listed the special features and capabilities they knew the new software would need - and The SilverLogic delivered. A platform that is industry-specific, such as real estate, requires both knowledge of the industry and software design principles. VMap was delivered with an intuitive user experience that allows real estate agents to locate information quickly and intuitively.
We worked closely with our client to ensure the software we built to fit all of their prerequisites and business needs with quality coding. The platform’s property database can be navigated seamlessly with MapBox integrations, color-coded zones, location pins, and a variety of location filters to ensure users can find the perfect property with the least amount of clicks possible. We implemented filters ranging from average monthly HOA, to whether the property is in a gated community, to whether it fits a certain home type—such as an apartment, a condo, or even a senior living facility. And our reporting and feedback system ensures the integrity and accountability of the information provided so that there is no second-guessing or further fact-checking is necessary.
To enter the market competitively, VMap needed a purpose-built platform to provide them with a wealth of intersectional, on-hand property information. Some of that information is not easy to retrieve, such as overlapping school zones, which requires the system to intelligently factor countless Florida areas and school entities into every property search. Our team of software development experts gave VMap full school zone functionality, putting it ahead of its competition like MLS. This is incredibly exciting since most real estate platforms get their information from MLS and sometimes by the time the information has gotten to them it has changed and is inaccurate. VMap is a game-changer and we at The SilverLogic are proud to have been involved in its development.
