I am a REI in the Twin cities, Mn area. New to this forum and excit d to connect with like minded individuals. I just listened to Paul Thompson speak and heard him say "scrappying" from Zillow and Craigslist's. What is scrapping? Thanks everyone.

@Thomas Peddle is there an easy diy way to scrape Craigslist without being too tech savy? Or do you know of any service that can set this up for me?

I am new to Wholesaling and looking for new resources to find specific properties quick and consistently.
