Is there a way to copy results from a search on a website into excel?

Q: I am wondering if there is an easy way to download all of the search results for a query/filter from a particular website database. For example, I need the search results from www.businessesforsale.com for a particular query and in a format such as csv for Excel so that I can manipulate the results and fields in a useful way without having to go through each of the 109 results, with only 20 results each page – expanding to include all of the details – and then cutting pasting into excel! And yes, this is currently what I do!
