FAQ 馃挰

Q: How do I provide the searchUrl?

A: To provide the searchUrl, first perform a search on Redfin.com using their search bar. Browse the results page, and then copy and paste the URL from your web browser to the appropriate field in the scraper's input configuration.

Q: Can I filter the search results before running the scraper?

A: Yes, you can use filters available on Redfin.com, such as price range, number of bedrooms, home types, etc., to narrow down your search. The scraper will extract the data based on your specified filters.

Q: I'm getting CAPTCHAs (403 errors in the run logs). How can I avoid getting blocked by the website?

A: For best results we recommend using a residential proxy from Apify. You can select this when starting the actor.

Q: I'm seeing "The version has been changed" in the run logs. Should I worry?

A: The actor tracks the version of the website, and shows a warning when the site changes. In most cases, this should not be a problem for the data extraction. However, if you see any discrepancies, make sure to send a bug report via the Apify console.
