Using Realtor Scraper with search and modes


  • When you want to filter a search URL, go to Realtor, create filters for the search list and copy and paste the link as one of the start URLs.
  • If you would like to scrape only the first page of a search list, then put the link for the page and have the endPage as 1.
  • With the last approach that explained above, you can also fetch any interval of pages. If you provide the 5th page of a search list and define the endPage parameter as 6 then you’ll have the 5th and 6th pages only.
