In the city I live in, many apartment buildings rental prices are not on zillow/street easy, but on individual websites. I'm going to be scraping this data, and presenting it in useful dashboards for users, in order to help them have more insights into their rental decisions. I had a personal problem not being able to negotiate rent or determine if they have been raising prices and I felt like this is an idea that would be a fun project.
Currently I am building out the webscraper which isn't too difficult, but now i need to make decisions on where to store the data and how to visualize it in the form of trends. From there I will need to determine how to generate revenue from the data via memberships, as well as building an audience and gaining users.
I am going to print out flyers and drop them off door to door in order to have them access my landing page and get email addresses.
If anyone has any tips/thoughts/comments, i am happy to discuss and appreciate the help!
