Manage the List of Houses for Sale

NREC requires the ability to manage the list of houses that are currently for sale. This includes storing key characteristics, such as price, number of bedrooms, and square feet; keeping a history of appraisals; and pulling in any data about renovation history from an external file that is supplied by a third-party vendor.

Table 2 lists the detailed requirements for the House entity and lists where you can find the tasks in this book that describe how to implement the requirement.
