Homebase by team Raise the Roof

The purpose of this app is to help first time home buyers make an informed housing choice.

This application was developed on February 7th, 2015 for Zillow and The University of Washington for the Hack Housing Hackathon.

Our apps source code can be found at https://github.com/jkahl7/HackHousing_RaiseTheRoof.

Challenge and Approach

 Challenge: Find the the right home in the right neighborhood for the right price/affordability.

Our approach for satisfying this challenge was to:

  • Use relevant datasets from HUD to get critical information like Affordability and Amenities.
  • Build a user friendly UI and use algorithms that work with Datasets to refine the results.
  • Recommend the user a list of the programs that fits their profile.
