#7

^ The concept.


#8

#9

Its bah but i'm trying to get these guys to give more input.. :rolleyes:


#10

Design wise, its very hard getting a good template to work from but i think i should go back to the drawing board on it. :/

Making a site for Pakistan is more complicated then making a site for Western countries i think. You need to think whats appealing to normal Pakistani and if possible to the net aware Pakistani.

Don't make discussion forums at all unless you can be really innovative there. Try something else :)


#12

design is not that bad but the color scheme is dull

I'm just not sure a discussion forum for buying/selling property is a very good idea. If I'm going to put down a significant amount of money, I'd rather go to a trusted property dealer than a random forum with all kinds of seedy characters posting there. Or maybe thats just me! :/

Oh buying and selling is not the main point of the forum. Point is discuss the real estate related topics.. Specially with the amount of corruption in the real estate market i think there needs to be a place where people can discuss and get heard.

Poor people rent from bad land lords who keep taking advantage of people.. Properties get sold by people who don't really own them.. There needs to be a place where people can go and be aware of the risks... also there needs to be a place where they can talk with professionals..

Posting property or not.. Person should have an option to sell without an agent.. If a forum can help in any way.. that's good... if it cant no harm is done... ;)

I know many young guys who are working in Multi-

National Companies and are posted to another city

where they don't know anybody (reliable) who could

guide them into getting a rental. If there was some

place on the net where they could get credible info

from real people, testimonials, etc; it could prove

helpful and lucrative at both ends.

But you have got to put yourself in their shoes. If

I am in Lahore, moving to Karachi, I should be able

to get my hands on all posts about rentals available

in Karachi with one click. For that, the site has to be

organized, keeping that in mind. Right now, you have

got Karachi and Chichawatni all thrown into the same

basket.

Try some drop-down javascript buttons to pinpoint

preferences, like they do on those car buying and

dating websites. The forum would be a nice addition

for anybody who wants to get into the nitty gritty.
