Business description

StudentAbodes.com is a web based company with the aim of showcasing the latest student properties to rent in Newcastle upon Tyne, solely advertising student accommodation from reputable letting agencies. www.StudentAbodes.com gives student letting agencies and landlords the opportunity to advertise their student properties on a city-wide database, which in return is targeted directly at the heart of the Newcastle student scene. (Whilst the business/website has been created to target the city of Newcastle the business/website can easily be modified/relocated to target any city or location).


The website itself allows students to search by area, landlord, price, number of bedrooms and more. It allows students to view property photos, maps and area guides to help select their perfect property, but most importantly allows students to contact the letting agents and landlords directly from the website.

With over £5000 spent on web development the website has been designed to be fully automated so that lettings agents/landlords can list their own properties, pay for listings and upload their property images directly onto the website 24-7/365. When a customer uploads a property their listing is automatically created and populated onto the site in real time, this means that the site is very low maintenance and very easy to run and maintain on a day to day basis. The website also has the additional capability of integrating with in-house property management software such as CFP WinMan, Gemini etc. making it even easier for agents who may wish to list unlimited properties on a monthly subscription basis.

The website comes complete with a comprehensive back-end content management system where the owner can manage all areas of the site administration, including advertising packages, customer account, content, pages, blog, posts, tags, code, layout, images, appearance, banners etc. thus providing the owner complete control over the site, its content, features and functionality.

Site Features include:
• Built-in Property Search Functions
• Built-in Content Management System
• Built-in Payment Processing System
• Built-in Google Maps
• Built-in Front Page Featured Properties Showcase
• Built in Blog
• Built in Facebook & Twitter Widgets
• Full Page Property Listings
• Built in Estate Agent Profile Pages - Agents can add Logos, Web, Email, Tel and Twitter/Facebook accounts
• Allows direct contact with letting agents/landlords by filling out email form.
• Individual Customer accounts
• Customers can upload their own properties in real time.
• Customers can login and edit their listings and images any time.
• Features Image Slideshow on Property Detail Pages.
• Features Customisable Payment Packages
• Supports 'Free' and 'Paid' Listings.
• Securely Processes Debit/Credit Card Payments.
• Featured Listings are highlighted in Search Results.
• Supports Unlimited Properties
• Supports Unlimited Images - including large files sizes
• Support integration with in house property software i.e. CFP WinMan, Gemini etc.
• Email Accounts
• Search Engine Optimization
• Social Network Integration
• Integrated Hit/Stat Counters

Due to other work commitments, the business/website has been inactive over the last 2 years but is still registered as a dormant limited company to protect the use of the company’s name. Consequently the properties and agents currently listed on the website are example properties ONLY. Given the way the website has been developed, with a little promotion, this site will in effect populate itself with properties and content as customers and vendors start to list properties onto the site.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to earn some additional revenue from paid listings and advertising to supplement their day job perhaps, whilst building up a great little business for the long term. As previously detailed the company was marketed at the Newcastle student scene however the business/website can easily be modified/relocated to target any city or location.

The company and website is being sold outright and the domain name (www.studentabodes.com plus all supporting domains i.e. www.studentabodes.co.uk) will be transferred to the new owner as an outright sale.

The business also has its own Facebook and Twitter accounts (700+ followers) which will be included in the purchase, including a comprehensive handover package with all site documentation. The company also benefits from a prestigious London registered office via www.compainesmadesimple.com (https://www.companiesmadesimple.com/company-services-registered-office.html)

For further detailed information please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am also happy to discuss any potential offers.

Thanks
Chris
