We really wanted to improve the way people in general find affordable housing such as apartments since there are so many apartment buildings that simply don't have their listings available in the more common websites like Craigslist, Zillow, etc. We wanted to create a website that was interactive and easy to navigate in order to better find housing.

What it does

How we built it

Database using mySQL, webpage build primarily with react, and a data pipeline using python

Challenges we ran into

The data scraper and web crawler took a very long time to run as well as being fairly delicate and needing to cover a lot of cases.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We have a beautiful website as well as a pipeline designed

What we learned

What's next for Housing Indexing App
