Real Estate Tools, APIs and Feeds

I was surfing around and found a post on Geek Estate Blog that I have added additional resources too. For those in creating real estate sites, this is a great resource of free data that you can integrate.

Google Docs

  • Google Docs - free online software, similar to Microsoft Word, that allows you to easily share documents with clients.

Demographic Data:

Local Amenities:

  • Yelp Review Search API – local business information with reviews using neighborhood or lat/long. We use the Yelp APIs in several sites and have found them easy to work with.
  • Hoodeo - A site that tries to match you with your ideal neighborhood.  Think Match.com but for neighborhoods.
  • Terabitz - A fantastic site that has rolled together a bunch of real estate APIs.  Reply! is working with Terabitz on our ConnectingNeighbor.com sites.

Neighborhood and City Home Values:

  • Zillow Local Real Estate APIs – Retrieve local home value trend charts with the GetRegionChart API and a wealth of other city and neighborhood home value data from the GetDemographics API.
  • AltosCharts – Local market price charts.
  • Cyberhomes - Local real estate APIs (free). We use both Zillow and Cyberhomes for data distributed on our sites.
  • Eppraisal.com – Local real estate APIs (free). Great company, fantastic design.

Neighborhood Geographies:

Home Listings:

  • Terabitz - They offer listings from several sources.
  • Oodle.com - Reply! uses Oodle’s home listings on our ConnectWithLife.com service.
  • GraphicalData – MLS / IDX feeds, local school information.

School Information:

Weather:

  • Yahoo Weather API – enter a ZIP or a geo location and receive current weather conditions in return.
  • WeatherBug API – Live weather conditions by location.
