The core feature for the Homematch website is undoubtedly the property search, and quite rightly so! The main search has been given an upgrade with a prominent position in the center of the hero area also with an attractive and simple to use UI.
Featured Properties have been promoted into a horizontal slider which responds and transforms at varying resolutions down to tablet (there's a forked or separate site for mobile). CSS transitions have been used allowing for a fluid and modern UX.
Financial calculators have also been added to allow users to easily work out mortgage and property costs on a dedicated page.
Behind the scenes, a new image uploader has been added to the existing bespoke property management system allowing for dynamic cropping and resizing of images to ensure property pictures remain consistent on the front end.
An advert manager has also been integrated allowing Homematch to promote new developments or important events
For users, an authentication system is present allowing them to login and manage personal information pertinent to the application process or to manage saved searches and favourite properties.
The application process itself is simple to follow with applicants able to submit all the information required to apply for low cost home ownership with ease.
