Oxylabs Unveils Real Estate Scraper

Oxylabs Unveils Real Estate Scraper
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.

About Oxylabs
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.

CoStar Group Integrates Homesnap Operations With Homes.Com

CoStar Group | December 05, 2022

CoStar Group (NASDAQ: CSGP) – a leading provider of online real estate marketplaces, information, and analytics in the commercial and residential property markets – today announced the next steps in its integration of Homes.com and Homesnap. This month CoStar Group relaunched Homes.com at the annual National Association of Realtors (NAR) conference held in Orlando. The new Homes.com is a more agent friendly real estate portal alternative. Home buyers can uniquely select an agent from a comprehensive directory of hundreds of thousands of agents based upon those agents’ experience and neighborhood expertise. The majority of home buyers work with an agent, and the new Homes.com uniquely empowers home buyers and their agents to collaborate throughout the home buying process on Homes.com for free. The Homes.com sales team conducted demonstrations of the new Homes.com for approximately 2,000 agents at the NAR conference. In anonymous surveys, those agents rated the new Homes.com a 9.6 on a scale of 1 to 10. Given the overwhelmingly positive response to the new Homes.com, the company believes that the new Homes.com product strategy is a home run. Today, CoStar Group took steps to combine and streamline the operations and functionality of Homes.com and Homesnap. David Mele, who led Homes.com for 7 years prior to its acquisition by CoStar Group in 2021, has been named President of the combined Homes.com and Homesnap organization. The company believes that the combined entity is now better positioned to efficiently achieve its goal of becoming the leading residential real estate portal. Over the course of the next 12 months, CoStar Group expects to increase the net number of employees building Homes.com by 700 after today’s reorganization and headcount reduction of approximately 100 duplicative roles. “CoStar Group is working to integrate the best of Homes.com with the best of Homesnap and Citysnap, We appreciate the hard work, dedication, and contributions from the entire Homes and Homesnap teams that have helped to grow our residential business.
