Description

This is a primary data on advertisements about the selling of secondary property in Perm, Russia. Perm is the 11th largest city in Russia and has approximately 1 million residents. Data taken from Metrosphera.ru listing website as the most extensive source concerning housing market information in the city with, expertly, near 80% of all selling ads placed on it. The apartment listings represent the following information: district, address, number of rooms, price, floor level, total square footage, house type and house material. It should be noted that the initial declared price is used as a unit of observation. Price revisions are not taken into account. In order to extract the data, we develop a scraping tool for daily downloading of all advertisements available in the period from October 2014 to February 2015. To add the geographical coordinates, we take the GIS data of all buildings in Perm with their addresses and geographic coordinates and match it with prices data by the address of a building. This allows constructing the geocoded data on prices and calculating the geographic distances between listed objects.
