Apartment Data Feed

Out of all of our products, our data feed will deliver the biggest boost to your website SEO. Google has confirmed many times through the years that the biggest contributor to your website rank is content. Our data feed is the fastest and easiest way to deliver fresh, relevant content in the form of apartment listings.

Connecting a data feed to the backend of a WordPress website requires a significant amount of technical knowledge. To make sure the data feed is integrated properly, you will need to provide credentials so we can install it to your WordPress theme.

Boost SEO With Apartment Listings

Our data feed is the fastest and easiest way to add hundreds or thousands of apartment listings to your website. Launch an apartment locating website in weeks, not months.

The SEO value of a data feed has been proven many times. Google loves content and a data feed continues to add new content to your website and remove human error from trying to type it and maintain it yourself.

Adding content to your website is the best way to improve your SEO rank. Google ranks your website based on your content, so the more content you feed Google about apartment communities in your area, the more free traffic Google will send you by ranking your website higher.

  • Increases the time users spend on your website, resulting in a higher SEO ranking.
  • Increases the conversion ratio of the website visitors to leads/potential client.
  • Index more dynamic pages resulting in a higher SEO ranking.
  • Assigns a “freshness date” to your property listings resulting in a higher SEO ranking.
  • Increases the credibility of your website.

Real-Time Rent

Since 2015 we've been developing our proprietary apartment data collection process. We have relationships with several national and regional data feeds where we pull real time rent every day. For smaller properties that don’t publish their rent to a data feed, we’ve built our own system that pulls the rent directly from the floor plan page of their property website.

  • Our apartment database is updated electronically every day.
  • We subscribe to property management data feeds, online data services, and regional providers to publish rent in all of our markets.
  • New construction is added automatically during the lease up.

Apartment Data Included In The Data Feed

We've listed below the fields of information available on each apartment in the data feed. After your data feed is set up, you can run it as often as you like. I usually set an automatic schedule to run it once or twice a week.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many apartments are in the data feed?

You can see the number of apartments in each city by clicking the “Markets Available” button below and select the city you are interested in. You will find a map and list of the apartments in the database. When you create a data feed, you decide which apartments to include. You can create one data feed for your website, and a different data feed with different apartments for online marketing.

Do you offer a free trial?

We don’t offer a free trial because once you import the data, we can’t get it back if you choose not to subscribe. Essentially we would be giving you a free apartment database. However, you can request a free testing feed for any market with five apartments included, and we are happy to answer any questions about the data available to make your comfortable before you buy.

How often is the data updated?

Since 2015 we’ve been developing our proprietary apartment data collection process. We have relationships with several national and regional data feeds where we pull real time rent every night at midnight. For smaller properties that don’t publish their rent to a data feed, we’ve built our own system that pulls the rent directly from the floor plan page of their property website.

Are commission rates included?

No. Unfortunately the apartments do not make their commission rates public so we can’t publish the commission rates. If this changes in the future we are happy to add the commission rates.

Which formats are available?

Our data feed is XML format because that is the preferred format by WordPress and listing syndication services. We have pre-formatted data feeds for WordPress, Zillow, RentLinx, Zumper, Google Maps, and Excel. We do not offer JSON or an API at this time.

Is the data feed difficult to install?

Importing the data feed into WordPress will require basic technical understanding about how your theme is set up. If you’ve never designed a website with WordPress, you will probably need to purchase our professional installation fee. Using the WP All Import plugin, mapping our data with your website fields is simple drag and drop but each WordPress theme is designed differently so you need website design experience. Unfortunately we’ve had clients who have hired inexperienced developers and we’ve had to charge the client to fix their website.

Do I need to sign a contract?

No. The data feed is a monthly service that can be cancelled at any time.

Does the data feed work with every WordPress theme?

Yes. You need to purchase a cheap plugin WP All Import PRO that works with every WordPress theme and simplifies any data import. Even if you don’t buy our data feed, you will need this plugin.

How does the data feed improve my SEO?

Google has always maintained the #1 website ranking factor is relevant content about your product or service. As an apartment locator your product is apartment rentals. Our data feed is the fastest way to create content about apartment rentals. Another ranking factor is Google’s “Freshness” Algorithm which impacts any website with content that updates frequently, such as rent prices. When Google indexes your website each month it logs the date your page was last updated. We can set your data feed to run automatically every week so Google can see that your prices are “fresh”.

Does the data feed change the design of my website?

No. The data feed is used on the back-end of WordPress, it does not affect the design of your website. The design is dictated by the theme you purchase.

What if your standard feed doesn't fit my project?

If our standard data feed does not have the data you need we can provide a quote for a custom data feed built exclusively for your project. A custom data feed would save your developer weeks or months of time, and allow you to generate revenue faster.

How often do I import the data feed?

Typically I schedule the data feed to automatically run every week. If you buy our data feed I can give you a free code with WP All Import to automatically schedule weekly imports.

Do I use the same data feed over and over?

Yes. The data feed is live data, it always has the most up to date information. When you open the data feed it takes a few minutes to “load” and refresh.

Are floor plans images included?

No. The floor plan image/sketch is not included. We stopped collecting the images in 2015 because they are very expensive, very time consuming, and we decided to spend our resources on better interior images.
