This software program will take several inputs from the user (a real estate agent) and develop an output of printed material that the user can deliver to clients. This will be a software application that will be installed on the desktop.
There will be one time inputs (ie. Name, Company Name, Logo, phone number, resume, MLS id, etc.) that will have to be saved. There will also be variable inputs (house information- beds, baths, sq. feet, location, subdivision, etc.), that will be used to pull information off the Knoxville MLS (Multiple Listing Service site) to do a analysis of the house's worth. The first time the user accesses the program, they will fill out the one-time data (which will also be accessible if items need to be changed). They will be able to select a default printing package that will come out (ie. Cover sheet, contact sheet, resume, company info 1, company info 2, analysis sheet 1, analysis sheet 2, etc.)
Once the defaults are set (there will need to be a tab/button to change defaults), the user will have a main screen where they will input house data. They will input address (text box), then select from variables, which will access the MLS system, using the users MLS id, and pull similar houses meeting criteria. From these houses, an market analysis will be done. The user will be able to remove houses from the analysis (uncheck them?), although all houses will be selected by default. The analysis will include avg price, days on market, etc.
There will be a preview screen to allow the user to preview all work, then to print the final work.
ADDITIONALLY, there needs to be an update function. There will be FTP site for you and for these programs to access, so this function needs to built in (either automatically, or probably preferably with a button). They need to be able to download patches to the program, company logos, company documentation, etc.
There can be no reliance on 3rd party software other than standard Windows software- ie. no database software unless it comes with the installation package.
