Is the home of tomorrow still a real estate product or will it be Googled up? Where will the real value lie, the building or real estate as a service? What about the future, can we learn to predict it? And how can we help make real estate sustainable? Take the challenge and hack for 24 hours during the ‘Hack that Home’ Hackathon as part of the ICT² event.

During the hackathon you get the opportunity to work with the biggest real estate database in The Netherlands with millions of home listings. NVM is the largest real estate branch organization in the country. Off all the homes sold in the Netherlands, 75% is sold by an NVM real estate agent. All NVM-members exchange information about the properties they list, like the transaction prices, m2 and location. All this data is stored in an extensive proprietary database, managed by NVM’s data-business Brainbay, and to which only NVM-members have access to. Until now…

Work in teams with analysts, marketers and agents to enrich the real estate data with open data and meet the challenges of the future head-on. The winning team will get a serious shot at further developing their idea together with NVM!

The hack runs from 12:00pm June 27th to 12:00 June 28th, with the final pitches around 2:30pm in the ICT afternoon program of Friday June 28th.


There are four challenges where you can work on:

  1. How can a real estate business compete with big tech and can our data help with this, is data missing and what data would you add?
  2. How do you think real estate agents stay relevant and play into these or other digital driven and data powered developments?
  3. How can we discover patterns and predict future trends and outcomes from the data we have today and how can we utilize it?
  4. How can we enrich our data to help real estate agents in helping to consider sustainability when selling or buying homes?

You can find more detailed information about the challenges here.
