Step 1: Get the API key

Search for Realtor API and click on the result according to the snippet below.

Click on the Subscribe to Test option and choose the plan you wish to subscribe to. The paid plans will allow you to make significantly more requests than the free plan, i.e., Basic Plan.

Step 2: Choose the API endpoint 

In the leftmost section of the API documentation, you will find the list of endpoints available with which you can import Realtor data to Google Sheets.

List of API endpoints available

For the purpose of the tutorial, we will import data related to those properties which are for sale in the US. 

To do so, select the drop-down arrow beside Properties→ click on Search properties for sale

In the centre section of the API documentation, you will find a list of query name and their parameters. While the required parameters will be automatically filled with default values, we can modify the query parameters to filter the data to suit our preferences. 

For instance, to find the list of properties available for sale in Chicago we change the location query‘s parameter from Santa Monica to Chicago.

Query parameter and their values

Once you have inputted the optional parameters click on Test Endpoint. If you have entered proper query values, you will find a success message at the rightmost section of the API documentation. 

Click on Code snippets→ change the programming language from (Node.js) Axios→ Shell→cURL.

Changing the coding format to access the endpoint URL

Copy the API endpoint URL and take note of the headers and their values. The same will be used later while using the Amigo Data extension.
