Overview of what I'm looking for:
- Find data on property prices over time in the area. Try to find a few sources like google search, zillow.com, trulia.com, local listings and realtors, airbnb rental prices, craigslist rental prices, spreadsheets, etc. The more granular the data is the more valuable it is (e.g. 30 year property prices in each neighborhood of a city would be excellent data). Residential data would be most valuable, but commercial and industrial data would also be useful.
- Find data about employment rates, top industries and companies, education rates, school quality, access to parks and other green spaces, and other community resources like theaters, gyms, and restaurants, etc. Again, granularity of the data is important so it would be valuable to have the address of where these residential/school/business/commercial/industrial properties are at.
- Find data on properties in the area that are “distressed” i.e. nearing foreclosure.
I would like this data for 3 U.S. cities around 250k population, which are to be determined once we start the project.
The final delivery should be as organized as possible. For example, spreadsheets, data files, etc. and a brief summary report of the findings.
