⬇️ Input

There are two main input options available.

  1. Simply copy the search link from www.zoopla.co.uk with or without filters to retrieve the available publications
1{
2    "urls": [
3      "https://www.zoopla.co.uk/for-sale/property/nw2-2ds/?q=NW2+2DS&radius=0.25&results_sort=newest_listings&search_source=for-sale"
4    ],
5    "delisting": false,
6    "onlyNew": false,
7    "proxySettings": {
8      "useApifyProxy": false
9    }
10}
  1. Search the list of Postal Zip Codes using the template link placed under sampleUrl variable. Copy the search link from www.zoopla.co.uk that contains all necessary filters and fill in the list of Postal Codes to which you want to apply filters.
1{
2    "postcodes": [
3      "NW6",
4      "NW12"
5    ],
6    "sampleUrl": "https://www.zoopla.co.uk/for-sale/flats/london/?q=London&results_sort=newest_listings&search_source=for-sale&added=7_days&property_sub_type=flats",
7    "delisting": false,
8    "onlyNew": false,
9    "proxySettings": {
10      "useApifyProxy": false
11    }
12}

This format is useful when you need to apply the same filters to multiple Postal Zip Codes, without having to manually copy from the site.

Other input values:

  • onlyNew - if this flag is enabled, Actor will return only new postings. The first time you run Actor after setting this flag it will perform a full scan, each time you run it again you will receive only a delta of new postings.
  • delisting - enabling this flag will allow you to determine if a listing has become unavailable on the site. The delistingStatus field will be populated in the results. Learn more in the Delisting Tracking section. The delisting option will not work correctly with the onlyNew flag enabled.
  • proxySettings - stands for Apify's basic configuration for proxy usage, fully supported by the scraper.

⬆️ Output

Actor saves data to DataSet Apify, from there you can download the data in any format currently supported by Apify - JSON, CSV, XML, Excel, HTML Table, RSS or JSONL.

❗Limitations.

Zoopla does not return more than 1000 results for a single search query. Use filters to ensure that your search queries are within this limit. Don't forget that you can use multiple links or Post Codes for your searches. The actor will make sure that there are no duplicate results so that you don't waste additional resources.

❌ Delisting Tracking.

This Actor supports tracking of publications that have become unavailable on the site. This functionality requires some important changes that you need to pay attention to.

The delistingStatus field will be filled in the results. False corresponds with listings that are available on the site, True corresponds with listings that have been delisted.

Once this flag is enabled, results will be saved to a named DataSet with the name format zoopla-{Year}-{Month}-{Day}-{Hour}-{Minutes}-{Seconds}. Results will no longer be saved to the Default dataset.

Validation is implemented in the following way: the scraper will check the data from the DataSet obtained in the previous run and if the announcement available last time was not available in this run, all data corresponding to the announcement will be saved in the new dataset with delistingStatus True. For this reason, you shouldn't use the delisting flag together with onlyNew. The check is algorithmically optimized, but keep in mind that it requires a full proofreading of the data from the previous DataSet. Therefore, enabling this option will affect the prices that are displayed.

⁉️ Your feedback

I always strive for quality in my work. So if you have any technical comments on Zoopla.co.uk Fast Scraper or you just found a bug, please create an issue on the Actor's Issues tab in Apify Console.
