Case Study: Nyumba Online Website and App Development service

The Challenge

Nyumba Online is disrupting how a person can easily get a house, plot or apartment for rent or sale in Kenya. They specialize in offering property search and listing service for agents, landlords, and property seekers.

On January, two entrepreneurs Salim and Melvin were looking for a new goal, to develop a property listing platform and start earning money online by marching property seekers with landlords and agents with vacant houses all over Kenya.
The two approached us to help them achieve their goal by developing a property listing system, website design, and payment integration and that is how nyumbaonline.co.ke was born.


Our Approach

Prior to system and website development, we held two separate brainstorming activities. The first was between the Key stakeholders that are the entrepreneurs, lead developer, project managers and two developers from Shara. The outcome of the brainstorming session was a full understanding of the client requirements and project scope. We also arrived at the name Nyumba Online as it resonates with the purpose of the website to display properties particularly houses and shops available for sale, rent or lease.

The second brainstorming session was conducted after 2 days with all the software developers, UI designers, and content creators where we mapped everything and begin the system development process.


The Outcome

The goal was to create a website that is easy to understand and use. But the overall experience of using the final website mirrors the entrepreneurs’ goal of having a property listing site that is modern, easy to understand and use when adding a property or searching for one. We strived to create a user-friendly website with great user experience by using clear design elements and thus producing a website that aligns with property seekers, agents, and landlord needs.


Their Say

“Amazing service. The guys created exactly what we wanted and even more. We only wanted an app for displaying properties but the team at Shara encouraged us to also create a website for the same. These guys are professionals and are good at what they do.

    “We knew we needed a change. We just had no idea how important it was to make the presence of our organization felt online. Right now we are enjoying crazy traffic to our website. Shara Solutions team didn’t just design our website, they showed us how to maintain it and how to attract traffic by the kind of the content we place in the website.”

  • “This website is cool. I love the bidding process since it is quite fair. The person who bids last is the one who walks away with the item. The trick is to organize for the money as soon as possible to avoid losing the won bid. ”
  • “The work done by these guys is simply mind-blowing. The guys took our idea and made it even bigger and better. The website looks amazing, so does the App. The team is quite professional. I am pleased.”
