Market Stadium's machine learning model for housing market forecasting

Market Stadium provides customers with property investment guides by providing forecasting models using machine learning models. The change of median housing value in the future of the census tract area which is a proxy variable of housing market growth is forecasted based on changes in the characteristics of the real estate market in the past. Determinants of median housing value such as real estate factors, sociodemographic factors, employments factors, and accessibility factors are extracted and used from the sufficient and in-depth dataset of the Market Stadium. We're delivering a forecast for the future median housing value in three years from the input data, and the CAGR(compound annual growth rate) of housing value growth in the area is calculated based on the predicted median housing value.

The Market Stadium research team tested various statistical and machine learning models in terms of data selection, model structure, and various algorithms. The latest Market Stadium forecasting model is delivering the 2024 forecasts of approximately 45,500 tract areas within 122 metropolitan areas that are selected as potential promising real estate investment areas by Market Stadium.
