Scraping owner phone numbers
Property listings in Zillow display owner phone numbers at various locations within the property details page.
- If you click the Contact Agent button, you can see the owner phone number in the popup window displayed (end of the list)
- You can see the owner phone number listed within the owner/agents list under ‘Get More Information‘ heading.
- You can also view the owner name and phone number under the ‘Listing provided by owner’ heading.
WebHarvy allows you to capture text displayed after a heading text using the ‘Capture following text‘ feature explained in the link given below.
