With the Hackathon fast approaching, we’re letting everyone know about our Hackathon sponsors. We’re excited that we are able to give our participants access to three of the best multiple listing services in the country – California Regional MLS, Midwest Real Estate Data, and the San Francisco Association of REALTORS® MLS. These MLSs are three of the top service providers for real estate professionals, serving over 100,000+ REALTORS® in the California and Chicagoland areas. All three also are well known in the MLS community for always looking forward to the future of real estate, creating innovative new data and analytics products for their members.
A technology-forward MLS is about more than just listing data – its about creating a seamless series of tools for its members, which includes world-class customer service, easy-to-use software tools, and innovative ideas about the future of real estate. All three of our sponsors have these qualities in spades, which is why they are considered some of the top MLS providers in the US.
Their data represents the archival housing stock of their respective areas, and is provided to our Hackathon participants in the hopes that it’ll be used to create AI solutions to some common real estate problems, like making virtual office websites ADA compliant or making better Automated Valuation Models. During the Hackathon, we’ll be tweeting about the projects as we learn about them, and we look forward to seeing what comes from this incredible wealth of data provided by our MLS partners.
