Looking for a website design for a new business, pickatimeshare.com. This is a ecommerce site whose purpose is to connect timeshare owners looking to sell, buy or exchange their timeshare week. The website will allow the sellers/lessors to list their space on the listing service for either a monthly fee or for a percentage of the rental or sales price. Buyers/Lessees will be able to search the listings by locale (city, state, region, country) and by select criteria (size or timeshare, week available, location, etc). In order to list a timeshare for sale, lease or exchange, the visitor will need to become a paying member of the site. Potential buyers or lessees may search for free and do not need to become a member of the site.
There are 2 target prospects for this website that we want to attract:
1. Buyers/Lessees- These are timeshare customers looking to buy, lease or exchange a rental week anywhere in the world. Many timeshare customers are family oriented looking for a week of vacation or business.
2. Sellers/Lessees- These are timeshare owners looking to sell, lease or exchange their rental week to anyone in the world. Many timeshare owners are family, hotels, resorts, and businesses looking to sell, lease or exchange.

Not too restrictive on the colors or design, but it should probably incorporate blues, greens and white for the ocean and water themes with graphics/photos.
Would like to have a logo design as well consistent with the website.
In the content area, need blocked space for content and blocks for “Timeshares for Sale” and “Timeshares for Rent” and “Timeshares for Exchange’’ where content can be added (similar to redweek.com).
Side bar should have a box for email opt in, login, and a box for social media buttons
