Project Details

Property listing website based in US Virgin Islands was built by fetching data from a RETS feed. There was no suitable module in Drupal,available for implementing this functionality hence database structure had to be built after mapping more than 300 fields from the RETS feed. Utilizing the phRETS library, a custom module was built for importing content from the RETS feed. High resolution images were also imported to the server with different condition mapping to avoid duplicate or unwanted images being imported. The database mapping of the RETS fields was a challenge due to the lack of documentation on fields.

Technology Used
Drupal 7, phpRets, Infusionsoft, Flex MLS Feed, Database Search Indexing, Saved search and alerts, Individual property alerts
