Online Real Estate and Property Management System in PHP and MySQL
The project entitled “Online Real Estate and Property Management System” is an online information system that will manage the sales and rentals of different real estate properties and will serve as a bridge between the customer and the property seller or owner. The concept of this project is similar to buy and sell system where the two entities will register first to the system to verify and activate their accounts. The user can either be a seller or a buyer, meaning he/she can post his/her property or he/she can browse, inquire and transact for the properties posted by different owners/members of the platform.
The main objective of the Online Real Estate and Property Management System is to design and develop an online platform for buyers and sellers to communicate with each other, specifically the project aimed to:
- To develop a portal for buyer and seller who wants to invest in real estate.
- To provide accurate reports of property sales, rentals, etc.
- To provide a tool for faster and reliable transactions between the seller and buyer.
