Appartement Search

This project was a little side idea I had while looking for new appartements. It is very time consuming to flip through pages and pages of appartement offers on different portals so I was wondering if there is a better way to get a quick overview. Currently the data gets crawled from immobilienscout42 and wg-gesucht which are two big German platforms to find an appartement.

Data

The first step is to visualize some statistics over the city you are looking at appartements for.

PriceSizeScatter

For example I plot the average prices-size relation for the different areas of my city (Osnabrück) as a scatterplot or a histogram of all price-size relations to get a general idea of what is a good price in my area.

PriceSizeBox

Then the appartements get visualized on an interactive map. Each appartement is a circle whose size represents the size of the appartment and the color represents the prize-size relation ship. A red dot therefore represents an appartement which is expensive for its size while a green dot represents an appartement with a good price. When clicking on a circle you can see the exact price and size and find a link to the original page to find more detailed information as well as pictures of the place.
