This parser is a simple project so my roommates and I could locate all the available housing in the area we were moving. It scrapes the HTML and returns JSON at the server endpoint which a client can call. The goal was to create something in less than a day that could give us all the details we need at a moments notice. It was not built with any other considerations.
