Usage

This library has 2 functions you can use.
import real_estate
list_of_building = real_estate.get_buildings()
list_of_building = real_estate.get_buildings_by_state("'VA'")
Additionally, some of the functions can return a sample of the Big Data using an extra argument. If you use this sampled Big Data, it may be much faster. When you are sure your code is correct, you can remove the argument to use the full dataset.
import real_estate
# These may be slow!
list_of_building = real_estate.get_buildings(test=True)
