It sounds as if you might require more, and more customized, help than can be given in this forum. There's a list of professional consultants and service providers on the Wiki:

You don't need to buy anything from OSM however you might have to do some things yourself. Remember, OpenStreetMap is mainly a provider of free data, not a provider of free computing resources. You will need

  • a JavaScript library to display the map and markers on your page (e.g. free OpenLayers, free Leaflet)
  • a source for the map ("map tiles") to be displayed - if it's for a limited area only then you can make your own tiles, but for larger areas you'll want to either set up your own tile server or use a third-party tile server (free offerings from MapQuest Open, commercial offerings from MapBox and Geofabrik, among others)
  • a database filled with relevant OSM data to perform your proximity/nearby search (free MapQuest Open Nominatim service might do some but not all of what you need)
  • someone to write the code that glues it all together

Also, OpenStreetMap does not contain data on what properties are for sale or their price.
