ShackPrices: Rails based Ajax real estate site

Category: Mapping, Ruby, Showcase

ShackPrices is a Seattle-area real estate Ajax application written using Rails by Galen Ward and team.

If you do real estate, you need to mashup to Google Maps, but this goes beyond that. It is highly interactive, with lots of live filters and tools, and the back button seems to be handled really well.

Nice site! And some really helpful information there. I’m sorry for beeing a little off-topic, but I want to ask you about the design of this site. Did you make this template yourself or got from any templates website? I am using joomla myself, but want something better..

Does the application apply only for the Seattle area, or is it also applicable to other cities and states as well? Would like to hear if someone have succesfully used it outside Seattle.

I believe it’s only applicable to the Seattle area. I may be wrong though. But at least that’s the impression I’m getting.
