The project to is to create a mashup of real estate foreclosure information for the region of Washington, DC, with other regions to be added later. Specifically you will: 1) develop scripts for ongoing webscraping of several real estate and public announcement URLs 2) make a browser-based interface (no client installation) to select and present the data that has been scraped. Data may be stored in an online database such as MySQL or MS SQLExpress. When the application is launched, the user should use checkboxes to select sources of the initial information. The sources of property listings will be the Washington Post, the Washington Times and [url removed, login to view] (searching for a set of Washington area ZIP codes). After the initial identification of a set of properties, the application will use the compiled and de-duped list addresses to pull in and mash-up additional data from other sites, such as the relevant real estate property assessment site, [url removed, login to view], and mapquest. The URLs targeted are: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] (foreclosure sale) [url removed, login to view] In case this link doesn't work, go to [url removed, login to view], click on classifieds and search for "trustee foreclosure". All of the foreclosures appear to say either trustee's sale or foreclosure. A typical property assessment site is here: [url removed, login to view] The data points needed include the full address, loan amount, loan date (for estimating equity), date of auction, assessment value, and zestimate value (from [url removed, login to view]) The output design is your opportunity to show your creative talent. It will be good if we can do ascending and descending sorting according to the parameters.
