ValueAppeal is a service to help U.S. homeowners appeal the assessed value of their home. Over-assessed property results in taxes that are higher than they should be. This means that homeowners may be over-paying their taxes by anywhere from $500 to $1,000 or more. I wouldn’t mind keeping an extra $1,000 of my money per year going forward and I bet the same goes for most of America. If you have a website focused on real estate (did anyone mention this to Zillow?) the ValueAppeal API could augment it with compelling information.
This week saw the widest range of APIs being used to develop mashups we've seen in awhile: 42 different APIs used in 7 days. Of those new apps added to our mashup directory, only a handful were map mashups, whereas most of them used more unique APIs: Google Chart API, indeed API, Livekick API, MTV API, NPR API, Tagalus API, TwitPic API, uClassify API, Vimeo API, and the Yelp API. Also, given that within the last 24 hours the highly anticipated Wolfram|Alpha search engine and structured reference went live, we did happen to see a number of semantic and linked-data APIs used this week: Reuters Calais API, DBpedia API, and Freebase API (and we've just added a profile for the Wolfram|Alpha API). The list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
