    Hi all,

     I'm new to Sitefinity and would be very grateful for a steer in the right direction.

    I have created a custom module to store details of houses (think real estate/estate agent website).

    I want a search form that allows the user to filter by price, house type etc.

    I can see  few different ways of doing this but wonder what is the 'best practice' when considering maintenance etc.

    I could either:

    1. use kendoUI or another js framework to do the filtering client side. I'd need a json webapi to power this - is there a recommeded approach?

    2. modify the widget templates for the custom module - would it be possible to do what I want using this methid?

    3. build an mvc widget with a hand rolled form that uses the Sitefinity API and LINQ to query the data.

    Many thanks for any input on this
