I need a web crawler that can compile a database of current classifield listings on Craigslist and Ebay Classifields. It should be able to retrieve all the listings from categories I tell you. On each listing, it should get the title, price, description, buyer name, posted date, and email (if there) and store them in seperate values. Additionally, it should search for any extra contact info in the description such as a phone number (ex. 555-555-5555). If so, it should store the phone number in a extra field. All together, this program should compile all these listings into some easy-to-read database or spreadsheet. MySQL database would be preferred.

I need to know an estimation of how long it will take, and the price of the entire project you offer me. If you do great on this, I am looking to employ someone who can do future tasks very similar to this for the next 1-2 months.
