The Challenge

John Burns Real Estate Consulting (JBREC) provides independent research and consulting services related to the US housing industry. The team produces custom consulting advice to help executives make informed decisions. However, this required spending an extensive amount of time scouring nearly 1000  US home builder websites to gather home specifications and pricing.This analysis and research is specifically tailored to real estate and housing organizations.

Eric Hubbard, Manager of Data R&D at JBREC, ultimately had to hire contractors so his team could avoid spending countless hours manually collecting data, which significantly impacted their productivity. The need for an efficient solution to automate this process became paramount.

The Solution

Bardeen.ai stepped in to revolutionize JBREC's approach to data collection. The goal was to establish an automated process to scrape high-priority builder websites, reducing manual labor and increasing efficiency.
