A little tool to check HDB resale prices

A few months ago, I came across a good piece of software that helps people to see and understand data. I actually tried it out using publicly available data and the resale prices released by HDB quarterly seems like a good data to analyze. As it turned out, my output wasn't too shabby and I think it might be useful to some readers out there.

I call it a HDB resale price checker as it allows you to select your town (or estate) that you're living in and view
    1. 2015 1H Stats - The latest figures, namely number of units sold and average resale price for 1st half of year 2015.
    2. Historical trends since 2011 - The trend of the above two figures since year 2011. Note that the number of units in 2015 accounts for 1H figures only.

Use the selection panel on the left to start. Remember that you can select multiple towns, check which type of HDB you're looking at and adjust the time period you wish the trend to reflect. Have fun!

    2. Thanks SMK!

      Yes, Tableau is pretty great for people without coding background to present data findings in an interactive way. We use Word/Excel for documents and Photoshop for photo editing. Tableau fortunately falls into such category of software, a tool for the common people.

      Most importantly, its free! Anyone can download the Public version to use. Great for casual bloggers like me :D
