I'm building a real estate website, using drealty and Drupal 7. We're pulling from a local/FlexMLS provider using RETS.
It's working pretty well so far. Besides our geocoding experiment. That's a mess ;)
Here's the problem. We're currently only getting around 4,000 listings (I'm expecting 6,000) - apparently only Residential properties. When I do a SELECT DISTINCT on the 'Type' field, I only get 'Residential' and 'Farm/Farmette' (which I assume is essentially residential).Read more
I dunno where to start, drealty documentation is non-existent, no real support.
On the other hand, open-realty has been in the business for a long time, and have lots of (costly) apps, but who cares if they help with business.
Any input appreciated.
We've worked hard on this one and just launched a new Drupal 7 site for Prudential Gallo REALTORS, showcasing the power of Drealty, Drupal, and real estate:
There is also a mobile site to compliment handheld devices.
i'm fairly new to Drupal. i'm trying to evaluate if i'm hitting the right road. i want to build a real-estate site with data imported from an MLS using the RETS protocol. so far, i see one module, dRealty IDX, that could be of use but it's still on it's beta release and not advisable for production sites. any thoughts on how could i forgo with this real-estate project? trying my luck.. maybe some of you have inputs for this. thank you! :)
Just put up a new channel on Vimeo dedicated to dRealty. The first of a multipart series introducing dRealty is live. Check it out here at https://vimeo.com/channels/drealty!
The dRealty developers have launched an IRC channel on freenode. Join #drupal-realestate with your irc client, or click here to join with the web client.
For those who don't know, dRealty IDX has recently been under heavy development. It is quickly becoming a very polished solution for tightly integrating RETS MLS with Drupal.
