First off thank you to every single one of you who took the time and effort to submit your designs. We definitely appreciate each of your efforts, and will be spending some time the next day sifting through all the spectacular submissions and choose a winner.
Also, I want to remind all of you that we will be looking to purchase multiple design templates out of these designs, so if your design is not chosen as the winner please do not withdraw your submissions as we will be contacting you individually to negotiate a possible purchase of your design.
Thanks again for your submissions. We have been extremely impressed with the quality of work and dedication that each of you have put in over the past week.
We'll be in touch soon.
* This is a Guaranteed contest *
We're totally re-doing our site at http://www.realfreedomproperty.com/blog/.
The new site will NOT be a Wordpress blog & I just need a PSD for a single page.

2 star and below - not really what I'm looking for.

Check out the Brief...
----------- UPDATE ---------------
Thanks to everyone who has submitted a design! We have a lot of great candidates for possible template designs for our user community. This is very exciting, and I again want to remind everyone that we are looking for MULTIPLE design templates. And plan on paying out for MULTIPLE template designs. If we select your design template we would like for you to provide multiple color schemes so keep this in mind when creating your template design.
I want to stress the importance of having a professional, sexy, beefed up look. We aren't looking for another "wordpress theme". The meat of the website will indeed be a property listing service, but we want to see a home page that just POPS (web 2.0, stock images, etc) and incorporates a couple of property listings on it (as well as having a strong emphasis on the VIP Buyer's List section).
Thanks again to all whom have submitted designs and to everyone who submits future designs.
P.S> Be on the look out for our future contests as we have a couple more that we are going to be publishing soon. We want to encourage ALL of you to participate!
We're totally re-doing our site at http://www.realfreedomproperty.com/blog.
The new site design:
- Will not be a Wordpress blog
- Will have 4 pages .. Property Listings (similar to current homepage), About Us, About You!, and Testimonials
- Should still have an RSS subscribe
- Should still have a similar "V.I.P. Buyers List" adEverything else from the current site will be removed & streamlined.
+++ IMPORTANT +++
Please keep this in mind.. we have a back-end content management system (CMS) & we need to be able to switch color schemes for the site on the fly.
For example, in the end we'd like to be able to switch from a "red" theme to a "blue" theme by simply clicking "blue" in our CMS.
This will make some simple CSS changes (to the background color, etc) & *voila* .. new look to the site.
We'll have 8 different color schemes. You only need to design one, but please keep our end vision in mind.
To get a feel for the type of layout I really like, check out http://www.mattlanning.com .. I like their clean design & use of stock photos
The deliverable is just a PSD for a single page.. the Property Listing page. This will be used as a template for the rest of the pages
- A PSD for the Property Listing page (i.e. a redesign of the current homepage, showing 2 or 3 different properties)
- Simple, clean, crisp, fresh, web 2.0 looking
- A design that we can easily control with our CMS
- No need to spend much time on a header logo .. in fact, the simpler the better .. we're looking mainly @ layout
