Apcree’s mission is “Real Estate. Automatic”. To achieve this, we report on the very first leading indicator of the real estate market – the real estate advertisement. Most real estate agents report on what has been sold, which only provides information on where the market has been – not where it is going.

We collect digital real estate advertising data daily and create a set of summary statistics every week. You are now reading our weekly “Suburb Report” which is the second of five reports we produce on Townsville real estate advertising every week. Learn more about what statistics we produce and why here ###

Now all these statistics, visualisations and text takes a lot of work. In the North Queensland region alone we track about 700,000 data points per week. Our pencil sharpeners and calculators wore out a long time ago! We make extensive use of Natural Language Processing (AI) to generate content around the statistics. This technology is cutting edge, so the wording might not make sense to everyone all the time – if you need some further information we are working on a customer support service in the future.
