If you check our homepage (http://www.home.ch), it is pretty basic/light, as we want people to focus on the searchbox to fill in their city and search for a home.
However, as our site is growing, we are lacking space to promote new features of our website.
One website we think that did a good job is realtor.com: The main focus is still on the searchbox, but there is also other info (like on the right 2-3 banners), below a carrousel with information, links to newscontent, and a footer with a lot of deeplinks to the website.
I am looking for an extended design of the homepage of http://www.home.ch that goes in the direction of realtor.com, but of course in the look&feel of the current home.ch-homepage.
IMPORTANT: I don't want a full redesign of the website, I want the current design more or less extended with new elements.
