Yesterday we launched a new design and logo for VivaReal. So far we have received good feedback. We are going for a cleaner, lighter design making it easier to find properties. Besides the design we made some additional improvements:
1. We made it easier to “like” properties on Facebook, Tweet properties and we also added the +1 button from Google.
2. We are also testing the Facebook Social Plugin for leaving comments. Now, a site visitor can leave a comment if they are logged into Facebook. Facebook is growing faster in Brazil than any other market in the world. It is an experiment and we realize that there is a risk of negative comments, but from other sites such as Techrunch we have seen that commenters are much more courteous because they do not remain anonymous. We will be monitoring how it works. Nevertheless, VivaReal is committed to setting itself apart as a leader and social is clearly changing how people communicate and interact.
3. To help better promote our clients we also include a featured real estate company alongside the results page with a link to the client’s properties.
4. Property searchers can now filter by price, area, bedrooms and bathrooms using sliders.
Please don’t hesitate to give us feedback on the site. We love to hear from our users.
