Does every market have commission rates?

No. Only in the (4) Texas markets do we know if the properties work with locators or not. If you subscribe to a market outside of Texas, you can enter the commissions yourself on the back-end. Unfortunately, property managers do not enter their commission rate in a public data feed so there is no way to mass update commissions. Commissions are the most challenging piece of data we collect so we offer the following methods. (1) We email the property with a free link to update their commission. (2) Each locator can update the commission on the back-end. (3) The National Association of Apartment Locators has a free commission database where properties can update their commission online. In many markets the properties require each locator to negotiate their own commision so they will never submit their commission to any database. For this reason, you can enter your negotiated commission into the database on the back-end. Any real estate agent in any city can get paid a commission if you present the benefit of your service and negotiate a commission rate.

Can I add apartments to the database?

Yes. The majority of our database is Class B apartment communities or higher, but you can submit a request to add a specific property if it’s not in the database. Our Apartment Database isn’t just another collection of listings; it’s a comprehensive resource meticulously curated to cater to the needs of apartment locating professionals. Covering 34 major metropolitan cities, our database offers unparalleled access to a vast array of apartment communities, ensuring that you always have the upper hand in matching clients with their dream apartment.

Can I add commissions to the database?

Yes. Locator IDX is a crowsourcing platform so any locator can add commissions to the back-end. Locators directly benefit from posted commissions and properties do not see it as a priority, so we gave locators the power to post. We email properties with a free link to update their commission, but few of them do it consistently. The National Association of Apartment Locators also helps collect commissions, but it’s always been a struggle to get properties to update rent or commission, even with a free link. We’ve talked with many management companies and their position is that it’s not their responsibility. The logical solution is give locators the power to post.

The best way to increase the number of commissions posted in our database is when locators add a property to a list, an email goes out from the National Association of Apartment Locators to the property asking to verify their commission. Properties are motivated to verify their commission when a potential referral is involved because it benefits them.
