Sitemaps

We have just launched a worldwide estate agents portal and are receiving many thousands of properties per week which have to be converted into an html sitemap and an xml sitemap, we are novices and are currently doing this manually. There are online sitemap generators but these will only index up to 500 urls, we have over 10,000 urls and more to come.
We have downloaded one standalone sitemap generator, however there is a problem when running it, we have "add to favourites" on each individual property page and the sitemap is not just indexing the property url but the "add to favourites" url and the "remove from favourites" url, which we do not want indexing in the sitemap.
We appreciate this is a big ask but you guys have always come up for us before as we are learning and ambitious, we are prepared to pay?

How has the site been built? Sounds a daunting prospect having thousands of properties a week and being novices! Best of luck with it.

Sounds like a site of this size needs to be database driven, if it was (or is!) then you could use php or ASP to query the database and in effect generate a page per property, or link to an existing page via a stored url in the database. This would also make a sitemap easier to create as each record in the database (therefore each property) could be displayed on a single page via a repeat region with a link to that specific record in the database.

Well, that's how I would approach it anyway, perhaps others have alternative solutions?

Have you got a link to your site we could look at?
