Check out our sample Zillow Market Overview: Rentals application built with Shiny and R. This application is intended as a online reproduction of the monthly local market PDF reports produced by Zillow, and illustrates the capabilities provided by the Shiny – R package for creating interactive online applications. The current iteration of this application is limited to large Texas metropolitan areas, but we’ll expand the geographic range of the application in time. Local market data is produced on a monthly basis by Zillow Data and supplemented by a neighborhood boundary data provided in shapefile format.
Here is a link to the application, which is hosted on shinyapps.io. In future posts we’ll discuss the details of how this application was built.
