Unlocking The Secrets To Building A Successful Apartment Locating Business

Are you interested in starting an apartment locating business but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you already have a business but are struggling to make it profitable? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Download exclusive guides and checklists with the information you need to build a successful apartment locating business.


Locator IDX is different than any other apartment locating software because it allows agents and brokers to display apartment listings on their websites. Apartment locators play a crucial role in the real estate industry, and there are several advantages for both locators and apartment communities when it comes to publishing apartments on the locator’s website. This is common in the context of an apartment multi listing service (Apartment MLS), where apartment locating professionals share information about properties for rent.

Locator IDX is an innovative apartment locating software designed to streamline and simplify an apartment search. With a user-friendly interface and powerful search capabilities, it provides real-time, accurate listings, enabling users to effortlessly discover apartments that match their preferences. Whether you’re a renter searching from a locating website or an apartment locating professional searching the back-end, Locator IDX transforms the apartment hunting experience, making it efficient, intuitive, and tailored to your unique needs. It typically works like a search engine for apartments, allowing users to input their preferences such as location, budget, and amenities. The software then provides a list of available apartments that match those criteria.

MLS Participation

Both apartment locators and property managers participate in our MLS, a centralized apartment database that contains detailed information about properties for rent.

Locator Friendly Properties

When an apartment community adds a commission to their listing in the MLS, their listing is distributed to every apartment locator for free.

IDX Feed Setup

Locators who want to display MLS listings on their websites set up an IDX feed. This feed is essentially a data connection between the MLS database and the locator’s website.

Property Data Integration

The IDX feed integrates with the MLS database to pull property data, including details such as property descriptions, images, pricing, and more.

Website Integration

The integrated data is then displayed on the locator’s website. Visitors to the website can search for properties using various criteria, such as location, price range, number of bedrooms, etc.

Responsive Search Interface

The website typically provides a user-friendly and responsive search interface that allows visitors to interact with and customize their property searches. This can include map-based searches, advanced filters, and other tools to refine the results.

Lead Capture

The IDX solutions include lead capture features. When a visitor finds a property of interest, they have the option to contact the locator for more information and inquire about price and availability.

Property Detail Pages

Clicking on a property in the search results takes the visitor to a detailed property page with comprehensive information. This page is generated dynamically from the IDX feed and includes all the relevant details about the property.

Customization Options

Our IDX solution gives locators the option to customize the look and feel of the displayed listings to match their branding and website design.

Mobile Compatibility

Our IDX solution is designed to be mobile-friendly, allowing users to search for properties and view listings on various devices, including smartphones and tablets.

Shae Hatter @ Dallas Apartment Finders
To say that Rental Advisors and Jodi Southwick are the "wind beneath my wings" sounds corny, but it's true. I do extremely well finding people rentals in Houston area but I am not an internet guru or social media expert. Jodi is both of those things, and so much more. I can easily attribute 1/3 of my annual revenue back to Jodi's efforts. She is the secret ingredient in my business recipe!
