Zillow is one of the biggest real estate databases in the world. Keep reading to learn how to import Zillow data into Google Sheets, the easy way.
Apipheny is an API connector for Google Sheets. You can use Apipheny to connect your Google Sheets to unlimited API data sources, make unlimited API requests, and more. There is a 30 day free trial included.
1.) Install Apipheny by opening the following link on desktop and then clicking the Install button in the Google Marketplace: https://apipheny.io/install
2.) After you’ve installed Apipheny, open a Google Sheet and then click on the Extensions dropdown in the menu at the top.
In the dropdown list you should see Apipheny. Click Apipheny then click Import API to open the Apipheny sidebar in your Google Sheet.
Tip: you can open a new Google Sheet by entering this URL in your browser:
To get started with the Zillow API, you’ll first want to sign up for a Zillow account or log in if you already have an account.
After you’re logged in to your Zillow account, register for a Zillow API account here: https://www.zillow.com/webservice/Registration.htm
After you’ve signed up for a Zillow API account and verified your account, you’ll receive an email containing your Zillow Web Services Identification (ZWSID):
In this section, we’ll show you how to browse the Zillow API documentation to find an API URL that retrieves the information you need from Zillow and imports it into your Google Sheet. If you already know your Zillow API URL, or you want to use the same example URL as us, just skip to Step 4.
First, open the Zillow API documentation page: https://www.zillow.com/howto/api/APIOverview.htm
If you click on the Reviews item, a page containing the Reviews API documentation will be displayed:
In the Branding section, you can find the rest of the available APIs, such as GetZestimate, GetUpdatedPropertyDetails, and GetDeepComps:
To view details about these APIs you must access the link at https://www.zillow.com/howto/api/api_name.htm , but replace api_name with the name of the API you want to access.
For example, let’s take GetSearchResults API. The link you must access is:
Some of the Zillow APIs are hosted on a Bridge Interactive partner site. An example is the GetZestimate API.
To access its documentation, click the documentation and API explorer link on that site: https://bridgedataoutput.com/docs/platform/
In the RESO Web API section, you will find the Zestimates API documentation.
The documentation for this APIs’ endpoints contains the HTTP method used (GET) and the link you should append to the root API URL for querying this endpoint (/zestimates), a short description of the endpoint’s purpose, and a description of the available parameters:
All API calls to Zillow APIs through Bridge Interactive should be made to the https://api.bridgedataoutput.com/api/v2/ base domain. All endpoints should be appended to this domain.
Now for the last step, go back to your Google Sheet and make sure that the Apipheny add-on is open with the Import tab open.
With the Import Tab open, enter these details into the add-on:
API URL: In Step 3, we explained how you can find the Zillow REST API endpoint that you need. Now copy the complete URL into the Apipheny add-on, where it says API URL Path, followed by any GET parameters required for your query.
For this example, we are using the Reviews endpoint, to get a specific user’ reviews. The corresponding URL for this endpoint is:
If you use this same endpoint, make sure to replace your_zws_id with your ZWSID from Step 2 and user_screen_name with the screenname of the user whose reviews you would like to return.
Headers aren’t required for this API request, so you can leave that section blank in the Apipheny add-on.
Finally, to get the Zillow API data in your Google Sheet, just click the Run button at the bottom of the Apipheny add-on and then wait for the Zillow API data to be imported into your Google Sheet:
After making a successful request to the Zillow API, try querying a different Zillow API endpoint, or try using one of the more advanced features in the Apipheny add-on, such as:
