Locator IDX is different than any other apartment locating software because it captures leads by displaying apartment listings on your website. 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 locating websites. 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 the corporate sponsor behind NAAL and is integrated with the NAAL database. Detailed property listings and commission rates are shared across both platforms and updated in real time. Locators can create guest cards and lease verifications directly in Locator IDX and share them with property managers. Together, Locator IDX and NAAL delivers essential tools to build a successful apartment locating business.
