I created a database of Housing Authority and Housing Society public housing estates early as 2011 from my personal interest during initial research of Hong Kong.
Few months later, an insurance company saw it and contacted me asking me for details regarding private apartment sizes in each district, so I voluntarily offered to extend my research to private estates too. Was the first time I was doing a large project at someone’s request rather than personal interest, I made the mistake of not discussing the price before starting the job, when I realized that I have spent about 100 hours compiling data manually, I attempted to ask $200, but they never paid me… so I stopped working and never gave them the extended database.
It was database was complete for public housing, all 400 Housing Authority estates, all 48 Housing Society estates, and 1300+ private developments (all estates and most important individual buildings), it contains, block types, number of blocks, number of apartments and their flat size range, also an incomplete list of demolished estates (please contribute if you know any other demolished estate not listed in it!). FREE sample include biggest 92 private estates. The database being mixed from 2 sources, is a bit messy. I will finalize database and update it if needed, when I find a customer paying for my effort.
A year later I published Hong Kong housing database on website for anyone else to purchase it if needed, at same time I published the Singapore Housing Database, which currently gets sales every month.
By 2016, nobody ever paid for my work, I created a new database sourcing data from Centadata only, this time using web scraping technologies learned one year earlier, and put it for sale at lower price. 1 person purchased in 2017.
In May 2018 been contacted by a customer interested in a housing database detailed to individual buildings so I worked with my programmer partner to make a more complex script to scrap data from Centadata website and I also made myself Housing Authority database. One more customer purchased detailed database in June 2018.
By end-2019 only 5 people purchased Hong Kong housing databases, consequently I did not dedicated my time for Hong Kong anymore, I focus on other projects with better sales: Singapore housing databases and car databases. See all databases made by me (100+ databases).
