    I've worked with several real estate projects in the past, and the key to their success has been listings. Do you have any experience in working with MLS boards to get that data? If not, how do you plan on getting listings into your system?

    i can get listings from a ton of real estate companies, this is what i want, people can list their properties, etc for free, however if they want premium services, like being featured first on the main page or something, itll cost them. And that is how i plan on making money.

    I have alot of connections, so im not too worried about that. Just the coding for my site to get it going.

    I don't see how you'd compete with the mighty MLS.

    Your title to this thread is a bit misleading. Perhaps you should change it need someone to code the backend. Telling us what language you would need it in would also help narrow down the possible applicants. If you have a budget then telling us this budget would also help.

    Yeah, the problem is that you really need to work directly with real-estate brokers, because they're technically the ones that "own" the listing. The real-estate market is a convoluted mess of rules and regulations. I've been working with a broker to develop a national site. The hoops you have to go through just to get listings is rediculous. Most MLS boards won't syndicate their data (because if they did, then they loose some control over it) and if you do get lucky with one or two of them, they'll insist you don't have FSBO listings on the site as well.

    I've found that most agents want a single place to update their listings. They don't want to

    1) Go to their MLS and update
    2) Go to national sites (like point2, and others)
    3) Go to their site
    4) Go to any other site to update

    They just want 1 place to update all their listings everywhere. The logical place is to do this in their local MLS, but the local MLSs are being PITAs about syndication, and it's my prediction that within 5 years, the concept of a local MLS will be replaced with some type of national listing service.

    I'm not trying to discourage you, just letting you know about the reality of the situation. If you want more info, feel free to PM me.
