Brief Description: This presentation walks through a methodology for building a predictive regression model to predict home prices. The project incorporates data cleaning, feature engineering, feature filtering, and one-hot encoding to prepare your data for model building. We compare various algorithms and walk through the process of hyper-parameter tuning. Short bio:
