HousingLink Vacancy Search and Data Entry Tool

The public uses HousingLink's main Search Tool to find affordable housing vacancies in Minnesota. The application consists of two pieces:

  • An application that allows landlords to advertise their affordable housing vacancies in Minnesota.
  • A search tool that allows housing seekers to search these vacancies based on location, rent amount, bedroom size and other attributes.

This application was built for HousingLink. The search tool is publicly available.

Unique Features:

The data entry portion of the application uses some fairly sophisticated validation rules to prevent incorrect data. It also performs some data cleaning routines to make some address and name data consistent. The system also adds some data automatically via XML feeds from select property management companies

The newest version is built on top of Sitefinity, and features search options that allow for multiple selection (such as multiple bedroom sizes and multiple accessibility feature options). It also allows location searches via a Google Map, and users can also optionally register to receive notification via email or text of new vacancies matching their search criteria.


The application uses the following technologies:

  • ASP.NET 4.6
  • VB.NET
  • C#
  • SQL Server 2014 
  • Web Services
  • Google Maps API
  • Geocoding Distance Calculation
  • HTML 5
  • TSQL-T Unit Tests
  • Automated deployment (application and database) via Azure DevOps
