  • Abstract

    ImmobilienScout24 is the largest real estate internet platform in Germany. Properties for private as well as commercial use are offered on the website. However, the data only cover residential properties. Furthermore, the data does not contain properties which have been deactivated temporarily (e.g. when there is a potential buyer, but the contract has not been signed yet), since these properties may not be available for prospective customers.
