Looking for a more efficient way to handle your property search on Zillow? If you've ever found yourself drowning in a sea of listings, spending valuable time qualifying properties, and then manually transferring data into a Google Sheets spreadsheet, you're not alone.
This automation streamlines your Zillow property search, automatically qualifying properties based on your specific criteria. Best of all, it effortlessly saves the results directly to a Google Sheets spreadsheet, eliminating the need for time-consuming data entry.
Whether you're a real estate professional managing multiple listings or a prospective homebuyer seeking your dream property, this automation offers a straightforward, time-saving solution.
Let’s set it up!
First, click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to save this automation. You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Google Sheets. This will allow you to save the qualification results.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card. The setup flow will start. Bardeen will ask you to specify a qualification task. You can choose to customize the property qualification task. This will launch the interface for creating a property qualifier based on your criteria.
Bardeen will ask you questions about things like ideal location and property. You will also need to define your categories like “high potential” and “low potential”. It is important to add as much relevant information as possible. This will increase the quality of your classifier.
We recommend that you train your classifier with sample data. This will increase the accuracy of the results and help Bardeen understand exactly what you're looking for.
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark your classifier, the Zillow search results page link and Google Sheets. This will save you time from setup in the future. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
Now that your classifier is set up, you can start qualifying your properties from Zillow search. Navigate to the search results page and launch the playbook.
Press Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard to launch Bardeen. Click on the playbook card and run the playbook to qualify the properties based on your criteria. It will open each property, analyze the data and generate a qualification based on the descriptions that you entered during setup. For example, based on the criteria I entered, only two properties were qualified as “High Potential”. Bardeen will also add a brief classification description as to why the property was classified the way it was.
You can also edit the playbook and add your next action to further customize the automation.
