|Real Estate Data Services - New Website Launched|
Real Estate Data Services came to DH WEB to convert their outdated MicroSoft Access database driven website to a MySQL Relational Database system. Converting the existing site from MS Access to MySQL was no easy task. The original database contained close to a million records that had to be exported and imported into the new database, search functions, data display, database queries, member information, layout, functionality and more all had to be custom coded by DH WEB.
Along with the database migration DH WEB also eCommerce enabled the site to process in real-time reoccurring credit cards payments for their members.
The new website was also given a completely new clean and professional design. The site was moved to a custom DH WEB database server. Email services and all web hosting is also now being provided by DH WEB.
Here is what Mitch, from Real Estate Data Services, had to say about the new site:
"The new REDS website looks so much better than the old site. I edited the text on most of the pages and uploaded the revised pages. Works flawlessly. Header and footer pages can be changed quickly. The navigation script was easy to edit. Pages load in the blink of any eye – works great!"
Since their introduction nearly twenty years ago, Real Estate Data Services has achieved their Mission by maintaining a comprehensive real property sales database for Cumberland, Adams, Berks, Perry, Franklin, Dauphin, Lebanon and York counties. Sales records are updated using property sales reports produced for public distribution by each county's Tax Assessment Office. These sales reports include essential information such as the buyer, seller, parcel number, address, deed reference, price, assessed value, sale date, building size and acreage for sold properties. Use Codes, which describe the style or most recent use for a parcel of real estate, are also present on a sales report. REDS applies a standard list of use codes to the tens of thousands of commercial, industrial, agricultural and residential properties sold annually in our area. Each category of information can be thoroughly explored using our online Search Filter. Even first time users will quickly be doing their own "data mining" with this easy to use search interface.
