Real Estate Data Scraper

Tech Stack: ,

Role: Developer

The real estate tax data scraper was an initiative between a friend/colleague and I to uncover properties in Philadelphia that are likely to foreclose based on historical real estate tax data availible to the public on phila.gov.

The tool I built was a relatively simple node js crawler that utilized cheerio and horseman node packages to gather tax data for properties that fall within certain parameters like zip code and amount in unpaid tax balance.

The code can be found on Github.
