Ease in short listing of properties is the most critical factor for home buyers in India. We knew that you were tired of the traditional and standard way of showing available property listings, as were we! After analyzing the industry trends and keeping the user experience as priority, Makaan.com launched the map-based property search for Indian buyers back in September 2013.
After feedback regarding enriched user experience in terms of easy sorting of the properties and grasping interface and keeping the ever changing needs and requirement of our users in mind, we added a few features which are a first in the Indian property market.
Different home buyers have different concepts in mind for their dream abode. For some, community living is ideal for having good social surroundings while for others, proximity of basic amenities like hospitals, schools, public transport etc. define the perfect residential location. Keeping in mind the need and requirement of home buyers, Makaan.com has updated the Map based Search with “New Projects” tab for displaying properties available for buying categorized according to Real Estate Projects; earlier the map only displayed individual properties and not the properties accumulated as per projects.
The main benefits of the new feature for home buyers are:
Here’s what a Makaan.com interactive map looks like with a search set up for projects for buying in Delhi/NCR.
Apart from the incorporation of the project search on the map interface, the following Bonus Feature has been added for the user convenience:
Automatic selection of search interface: The ‘map based search’ initiative has always been complementary to the existing ‘list based search’ and the user had the option of switching between the two depending on his preference. Further, a new “intelligent” feature has been incorporated in the system under which there will be an automatic selection of the search page depending on system intelligence of the user. The automatic selection helps the users in having quicker interactions in terms of filtered and compared results for the properties.
The high end technology and features of map-based search would empower Indian homebuyers with information and knowledge like never before. This knowledge will assist in taking an informed property buying decision from the comfort of their homes and offices.
