    wow - thats a big ask, if you really know nothing about web design

    I looked into this a few years back, and found a useful set of templates that provided quite a good property site

    Just confirm the requirements -
    do you want people to load there own pictures and description
    do you want to take money via the site
    We probably need to know the business model and business plan you have for the website

    also just creating a website will NOT create a business - you will also need to advertise and get the site and services you offer known

    your IP shows up as Delhi, India, is this the geographic location of the business - whats the existing competition and the market potential
    also whats your USP- unique selling proposition

    okay so here is what we both have planned how the website should be like...

    Here it goes..
    1. People should be able to load pictures of the property, write some comments and if needed edit what they have done before.
    2. They should be able to chat with other online users in real time.
    3. Yes there will be e-commerce too, money shall be paid via online banking/credit/debit card.

    business model is not a complicated one, we have just planned that people will pay their subscription and we will advertise there product on the web.
    However we know that complications shall follow.

    Okay so here i'am giving you a link of one of the property portal that is quite popular in my country.

    http://www.99acres.com/

    here are some more
    http://www.magicbricks.com
    http://www.makaan.com
    http://www.indiaproperty.com

    please help me out setting up my business as you guys know almost everything about it..... I'am also planning to do some degree course in IT but that is later.

    plz reply... :)
