Porchd wanted to gamify the real estate browsing experience (think Tinder, but for houses). They envisioned a digital space where sellers get honest opinions on their homes, visitors earn rewards for feedback, and real estate agents generate data-driven leads. As a startup, Porchd needed digital architects who could help them draw up their business blueprint and build a custom web application housed in a beautiful website.
Since Porchd needed to push the boundaries of web functionality and work seamlessly across all devices, we built the system from the ground up on the Laravel open-source platform. To give the website major curb appeal (it’s for critiquing homes, after all), we included an image-centric, fully-responsive design perfect for engaging viewer interest. The site itself is a monument to ease-of-use: the core search function is front and center while every page is optimized for multiple audiences. Forgive us for saying it, but no matter where you are on the site, you’ll feel right at home. Before launch, we also built an app that added new dimensions to the Porchd service and capitalized on the increasingly mobile-first approach in the real estate industry. Together, Porchd and DotcomWeavers built a beautiful and profitable digital space that people love to spend time in.
