What can Redfin Search Scraper do?

This scraper lets you get list of real estate properties in given area from Redfin fast and easily. It's suitable for such use cases as scraping homes for sale, for rent or recently sold on the Redfin platform. For each home, this scraper provides basic information such as price, size, street address, number of bedrooms and bathrooms.

It is legal to scrape publicly available data such as property prices, availability, or street address. Read our blog post on the legality of web scraping to learn more.

How much does Redfin Search Scraper cost?

This scraper uses the Pay-per-result pricing model, so your costs can be easily calculated: It will cost you $1 to scrape 1,000 search results, so 0.001 USD per item. It is possible to limit the number of output items in input configuration, under the last Options section.

Apify provides you with USD 5 free usage credits every month on the Apify Free plan, so you can get 5,000 results from Redfin completely for free!

But if you need to get more data or to get your data regularly, you should grab an Apify subscription. We recommend our $49/month Starter plan - you could get up to 50k Redfin results every month with the $49 monthly plan!

How many results can I get from Redfin search? Am I limited to 9 pages of results like on the website?

No, this limitation doesn't apply to the scraper. Unless you explicitely disable the Zoom in to scrape more items flag in the input, this Actor will use a smart technique to extract all results for your selected area. Which brings us to the next question,

What does the Zoom in to scrape more items flag do?

This flag enables a powerful technique that allows the scraper to extract all results for a given area, overcoming the maximum limit of 9 pages of results for searches in large areas.

How it works: The scraper loads the map for a given area. It returns the results, and checks the total number of pages available. If there are 9 pages (= the maximum that Redfin offers), it splits the map in 4 parts, and repeats the process with increased zoom for each of them, until it reaches a zoom level where it is certain that zooming closer won't uncover more results.

A big advantage of this approach is that you aren't wasting money on scraping both dense areas and areas with few results at the same zoom level - the scraper only zooms in if it needs to do so in order to get complete results. Using this method, it is possible to scrape over 600 thousand results from a single search!

This mechanism is enabled by default
