Inspiration

Finding a place in a new city can be tough. You generally don't know what the average housing for a certain place you want to rent is. This is to help first time renters in the city to be accustomed to the house rentals.

What it does

To provide a solution to this problem, we devised a service that compares rental listings to the average of the housing market. We are able to determine this by comparing the listing price to a list of data of other rentals within the city.

How I built it

This is done using a machine learning algorithm to predict the average value of the rentals based on features of the property such as number of rooms, appliances, and location.

Challenges I ran into

  • Due to time constraints, the machine learning algorithm currently takes only the number of rooms into consideration
  • Designing the logo.
  • Figuring out where to get datasets from.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • Used machine learning for the first time.
  • Completed the phase that we set out initially to be accomplished.

What I learned

  • React.JS
  • Machine learning with python using sci-kit learn
  • Prototyping with IO

What's next for House Hunter

  • Machine learning on more criteria and not just housing
  • Animations to display general averages of different instances of the website
