Oxylabs | November 25, 2022
Oxylabs, the leading premium proxy and public web data acquisition solution provider, has launched its Real Estate Scraper API, enabling automated data acquisition from a large variety of real estate websites.
The real estate industry has begun using web scraping significantly, enabling companies to extract valuable non-traditional data. For instance, most real estate ads exist online and web scraping is the primary technology allowing the collection of such intelligence, which, once analyzed, allows betting on data-backed decisions.
In addition, such features as proximity and dispersion of points of interest have been shown to have strong predictive power for property value. While these data points are extremely valuable, getting a constant and reliable stream is challenging, which has created a rising interest in real estate external data providers.
"Within the realm of data and information, scraping provides virtually limitless opportunities to businesses and individuals alike. Our internal research revealed that real estate web scraping has been growing significantly, with our sales teams noticing a sharp rise in client inquiries. Businesses use automated data acquisition to drive revenue and, at the same time, improve the livelihood of consumers through use cases such as creating data aggregators."
- Nedas Višniauskas, Commercial Product Owner at Oxylabs
Oxylabs stands at the forefront of automated public web data gathering, holding numerous patents for technologies associated with the field. Expansion into real estate data scraping is another step toward reaffirming the company's commitment to innovation in the industry.
While Oxylabs has always provided infrastructure for scraping real estate data, it previously necessitated the usage of in-house scrapers. With the newest release, Oxylabs will make real estate data scraping accessible and cost effective to businesses of all sizes.
Established in 2015, Oxylabs is a premium proxy and public web data acquisition solution provider, enabling companies of all sizes to utilize the power of big data. Constant innovation, a large patent portfolio, and a focus on ethics have allowed Oxylabs to become a global leader in the data acquisition industry and forge close ties with dozens of Fortune Global 500 companies. In 2022, Oxylabs was named the fastest-growing public data gathering solutions company in Europe in the Financial Times' FT 1000 list.

Thompson Thrift, a full-service nationally recognized real estate company and one of the nation's leading multifamily developers, announced today the development of Alta25, a 264-unit Class A multifamily community in the Colorado Springs suburb of Monument. Thompson Thrift plans to welcome new residents starting in 2025.
"There is strong demand for luxury multifamily communities in this area, We expect that Alta25 will provide an appealing rental option for residents desiring the style, luxury and convenience that Thompson Thrift communities feature."
-Josh Purvis, managing partner for Thompson Thrift Residential
Located at 16218 Jackson Creek Pkwy, Alta25 will offer eight, three-story garden style buildings and 96 detached garages. The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes will average 987 square feet with luxury finishes including gourmet bar-kitchens with elegant quartz countertops, timeless tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, designer fixtures and finishes, Alexa-compatible smart hub to integrate all smart devices, smart thermostat and smart door locks, walk-in closets, full-size washers and dryers, as well as patio, balcony, and private yard options.
Luxury living will continue throughout the community with amenities such as a professionally decorated clubhouse, resort-style swimming pool, 24-hour fitness center, Amazon Package Hub, bike storage and workshop, thoughtfully designed courtyards, grilling stations, outdoor game area, an electronic firepit with seating area, a dog park, pet spa with grooming station, and more.
The site is adjacent to Monument Marketplace, which is home to over 658,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, and sits within The Village at Jackson Creek, a mixed-use project currently in development. Historic downtown Monument, less than three miles north, offers small-town charm filled with unique and locally owned boutiques, restaurants, galleries and spas.
Nearby Interstate 25 is currently being widened to six lanes, which will improve traffic flow from Colorado Springs to Denver, and further improve access to several major employers including Fort Carson, UCHealth Memorial Hospital North and Schriever Space Force Base.
Monument offers the ideal Colorado setting with views of Pikes Peak to the southwest, the Rocky Mountains to the west. Additionally, residents will enjoy an abundance of outdoor recreation, and highly rated public schools, both of which contributed to Monument being ranked as one of the best places to raise a family in Colorado.
During the past 30 years Thompson Thrift has developed more than $4 billion of ground-up development projects across the Midwest, Southeast and Southwest. The company made a name for itself by being one of the few developers to build high-quality, attractive Class A residential communities with a variety of conventional, luxury leased villa and townhome-style communities.
