Hackathon Ideas

Introducing our hacks!

 The Usual Suspects

AudioSense (aka The Usual Suspects) developed an AI based system to automatically understand context from recorded audio conversations between buyers and sellers. One Solution, Enormous applications!

 What’s in a name

We conceptualized Makaan Mate – a platform for users to rent homes on a shared basis that can be integrated on makaan.com. We also enabled private chat and social sharing with other interested individuals.


Worked on an idea which enables a user to upload a listing he has uploaded on another platform onto our platform. Also, leverages data from other apps to show a ghost of the same listing in our own app.


A listing on makaan.com goes live in 2-6 days. We used machine learning and NLP to validate price, area, etc. in property descriptions. Also, created a swipe-left-right image selection tool to verify images faster.


We created a solution that enables an investor to access all the necessary information in one place and guides him through an investment index which is built using investment wisdom and historical data insights.

Kung-Fu Pandas

Developed BOT that takes 360 images of a property, can be viewed on a VR Headset. Used NLP to gauge customers’ activity on other portals and developed feature for agent to find upcoming projects in the vicinity.


Built a next version for 4D view with complete 360 degree rotation down to the unit plan views and scalable cloud hosting. 3D models are created using unique raycasting method on a platform that is scalable.


We conceptualized a virtual currency, m-coins that can be used by brokers to sponsor listings, buy leads, etc. In return for the currency, we will be able to motivate positive behaviors amongst the community.


The idea was to use advanced image processing to enable a user to click an image of a print ad and be directed to a digital brochure with more substantial info which a real estate project’s print ad lacks.


We worked on a breakthrough solution using 360 image technology and VR that enables sellers to create a virtual tour of a home by linking images of different rooms. Buyers can then view this as part of a listing.


We developed a chrome extension, PropHack that provides a user forward flows to other real estate sites basis the interest he has expressed on one so that he can leverage rich insights.


Created a 3D experience to benefit buyers by saving time and sellers by saving cost using virtual site visits. The experience is unique as it allows the user to freely navigate the entire city.

Bad Omens

We worked on mConnect – a platform connecting buyers and sellers to share reviews about the localities they are living in to help potential home seekers looking to find homes in the same locality.


Built a solution for people seeking roommates matching a set of preferences. The user is shown matching individuals. On a consensual match, he can privately chat with matches and take a final call.

The Stoners

Our Hack – Bid@Makaan is to bring Real Estate Auction and Bidding, an offline phenomenon in India, online and enable makaan.com to take the lead with its established network of buyers and sellers.

The Clickbaits

We worked on an idea called “makaan360” which shows the exterior view of the property along with the interiors. This can save a home seeker’s critical time by helping him select the right properties to visit.


We implemented a unique solution for architects and interior designers to showcase their work to the real estate end users who can e-hire them for projects using our interface.


We worked on the search page algo for makaan.com by personalizing results basis specifics shared by a user – office location, marital status, etc. We were not able to demo our product due to unforeseen circumstances and hope to participate in the next hackathon.
