What is the main story?
“I’m a 28 year-old male graduate student studying Computer Science at UMKC. My family and I moved from South Korea to the United States and are searching for a place to call home. We don’t know the Kansas City area very well, but we do know that we want a quiet and safe neighborhood. We want our new home to be within a reasonable price with excellent ratings of organizations/businesses. My daughter’s education and social activities must be of the best type of quality.”
Our objective is to provide users with a wealth of information that would be able to assist them in determining or refining if a certain area/community is appropriate for their new purchase.

The characters/people affected by this story are young adults, middle-aged adults, seniors, and families looking to find a home. The application will be able to assist characters with children to find a safe neighborhood and quality education. It also assists characters in finding a quiet and peaceful neighborhood.
Our idea will contain crime statistics and school ratings from a variety of sources to form a simple, organized, and attractive resourceful site. This information will be provided alongside the listed home for sale/rent, so that users can make a timely informed decision rather than searching through multiple sources.
This type of information becomes valuable during the research process of looking for a house. However, it can occur at any stage of the process.
There are many factors that users are looking for when buying/renting a new home. Without the proper sources of information, users can make a costly and regrettable decision on their new home. It is important to us that our users are able to find a safe place to live, within an affordable price range, and have access to schools with an exceptional educational atmosphere.
Given a set of input data, users can filter through the list of available homes for sale/rent. Users can then be able to display additional information specific to the home selected. This set of data will include up-to-date data within the area regarding the crime rate, school ratings, and similar houses for sale/rent.
