I'm interested in investing in commercial property in the North of Scotland, but I need more information to base my investment decision on.
The developer will be provided with a list of roads in the North of Scotland. A solution needs to be built to scrape several big-name websites ([url removed, login to view], airbnb etc) on a daily basis to identify the following:
1) The names of the properties within 1/2 mile of these roads (some roads are very long, the solution will need to work along the entire road)
2)What availability they have and at what price, for each room / building, for as far ahead as information is available
3)What the anciliary fees are (booking fees, cleaning fees etc)
4) Depending on cost and complexity, screengrabs should be taken by the scraper and saved, so the data can be audited.
The solution will then need to de-duplicate this data (so that each available room is only available once).
The solution will use some assumptions (which will be discussed with the developer) to build a report, showing
1) How many rooms / homes etc are available in the catchement area
2) At what price they sell
3) When in the season they sell
4) General occupancy rates
The scrape will need to take place daily, with error messages alerting the developer if there are changes that have caused the scrape to fail. Where this occurs the developer will need to provide an urgent fix, as the data must be 100% complete - although it does not matter at what time of day the scrape is taken, so long as it is generally consistent.
I will need access to the data after the first few days, and the solution should update its reporting daily. The data should be exportable.
It is anticipated that the project should run daily from March - October this year. I appreciate it is unlikely the solution will be ready for March 1st.
I am open to discussing payment per hour or a fixed payment for the project as a piece of work.
