Based in South Africa, Property24 is a real estate website where users can find properties that are either for sale or for rent. Property24 has over 300,00 listings that can be found there making it the largest property website in the country. You don’t need an account if you just want to browse through their listings but you do need one if you want to post a listing. When browsing for a listing, you can choose from a variety of filters like which city or suburb, its street name, and many more.

Property24 hosts a great deal of valuable data about real estate listings that real estate agents and rental companies want. This information might be about prices of homes for sale or rent, its location, size, and many more. Even one person or homeowner looking to gauge the real estate market would find all of that information important. Manually scraping the website for all of that information though would take a lot of time and energy. To streamline this process, you would need the help of a scraper bot and let it do the job for you.

A scraper bot is a quick and easy way to extract any data from Property24 and any other website for that matter. The problem is that the use of bots are heavily restricted by most websites. If a website detects that you’re using a bot, your IP address will be immediately banned and prevented access from that site again. The only way to bypass this restriction is to use a Property24 proxy.

Property24 proxies will hide your IP address from the internet and any website you visit will only be able to see the IP address of the proxy server. By continuously changing IP addresses through rotating proxies, you can make it seem like your bot traffic is actually human traffic. By using the best Property24 proxies, which are residential proxies, you can deceive any website into thinking that your bot is actually a different user each time it makes a request.

Let’s set up a Property24 proxy server.

Note: A reminder to make sure that the web browser you’re using for Property24.com is set to automatically copy your system’s proxy settings. It’s recommended to use Google Chrome because it automatically does this.

How To Use Proxies With Property24

For Windows:

To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.


You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.

If you chose the first option, then:

  1. Turn on Automatically detect Settings
  2. Turn on Use setup script
  3. Enter the script address
  4. Click Save


If you chose the second option, then:

  1. Turn on Use a proxy server
  2. Input both server address and port number
  3. If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
  4. Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
  5. Click Save


For Mac.

To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:

Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.


Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.


Step 3. Click on “Network”


Step 4. Click on “Advanced”


Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.

Step 5. Click on “Proxies”


This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
  2. Turn on Secure Web Proxy
  3. Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
  4. Click OK to save the configurations

Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.


For Mobile:

To configure mobile Property24 proxies, simply change your phone’s proxy settings. The Property24 mobile app will copy your phone’s proxy settings whenever you use it. This is applicable for both Android and IOS. Here’s a thorough guide for Android and another one for iPhone.

Congratulations! You have now finished configuring your Property24 proxy server. Note that the first time you visit it, there will be a pop up asking for your login credentials.
