I am a Realtor who is familiar with Excel, so when I saw that I can export data from the MLS, I became very excited because I know there is a wealth of information that can be gathered from it- but I don't have the expertise to do it myself. I would like one example/ exploratory project where there is no outcome but to explore the data and see what kind of analysis is possible from the available fields.
Then, once I find a good freelancer to work with- I would like to use him/her to do reports for clients. These projects would have a specific outcome in mind- such as pricing a home using comparable properties or convincing a client to go with our firm over another based on the data, or doing a market report/ newsletter etc.
Later projects will have a specific, message, objective, or outcome that we want backed up and explained using simple graphs, charts, pivot tables etc.
