Actor - Rightmove.co.uk Scraper

Rightmove scraper

Since rightmove.co.uk doesn't provide a good and free API, this actor should help you to retrieve data from it.

The Rightmove data scraper supports the following features:

  • Get anything, get any list, use any filter - Filter your needs, create ranges, filters, or type locations, and immediately harvest properties that are for sale, for rent or already sold. Retrieving any result is as easy as clicking a button.

  • Scrape listings of agents - If you are looking for properties of an agent, you are in the right place. Use the agent's profile URL and get everything easily.

  • Gather up all the property data - Baths, amenities, key features, images, title, description, lease options, beds, and tons of other detailed information are ready for your consumption. Rental, sold, for sale, student properties, and even overseas properties blazingly fast!

Input Parameters

The input of this scraper should be JSON containing the list of pages on Rightmove that should be visited. Possible fields are:

  • startUrls: (Required) (Array) List of Rightmove URLs. It can be search, real estate agent, overseas listing page, property details, and many other things!

  • endPage: (Optional) (Number) Final number of page that you want to scrape. The default is Infinite. This applies to all search requests and startUrls individually.

  • maxItems: (Optional) (Number) You can limit scraped items. This should be useful when you search through the big lists or search results.

  • proxy: (Required) (Proxy Object) Proxy configuration.

  • extendOutputFunction: (Optional) (String) Function that takes a JQuery handle ($) as an argument and returns an object with data.

  • customMapFunction: (Optional) (String) Function that takes each object's handle as an argument and returns the object with executing the function.

This solution requires the use of Proxy servers, either your own proxy servers or you can use Apify Proxy.

Tip

When you want to scrape over a specific list URL, just copy and paste the link as one of the startUrl.

If you would like to scrape only the first page of a list then put the link for the page and have the endPage as 1.

With the last approach that is explained above you can also fetch any interval of pages. If you provide the 5th page of a list and define the endPage parameter as 6 then you'll have the 5th and 6th pages only.

Compute Unit Consumption

The actor is optimized to run blazing fast and scrape as many items as possible. Therefore, it forefronts all the detailed requests. If the actor doesn't block very often it'll scrape 100 listings in 2 minutes with ~0.07-0.09 compute units.

During the Run

During the run, the actor will output messages letting you know what is going on. Each message always contains a short label specifying which page from the provided list is currently specified. When items are loaded from the page, you should see a message about this event with a loaded item count and total item count for each page.

If you provide incorrect input to the actor, it will immediately stop with a failure state and output an explanation of what is wrong.

Rightmove Export

During the run, the actor stores results into a dataset. Each item is a separate item in the dataset.

You can manage the results in any language (Python, PHP, Node JS/NPM). See the FAQ or our API reference to learn more about getting results from this Rightmove actor.
