30 Years of Multifamily Data Experience

When you become an ALN client you don’t get just accurate Multifamily data, you hire your own personal research firm.

With the inception of our Locator Program  in 1991 and then ALN OnLine in 1993, our market coverage and platforms have grown to what ALN is known for today – market data with integrity. Over the last 10 years, ALN has developed two separate platforms specifically for Supplier Partners. Vendor Edge Plus is available in all markets across the country while Compass is a one-of-a-kind nationwide Multifamily database.


  • All of our information is gathered by researchers, emails, faxes and data feeds from the owner/management companies. Information reflected today is available in our different database programs, which include ALN OnLine (Owner/Manager), Vendor Edge Plus and Compass National (Products and Services), and our Locator Program.
  • From ALN’s Research Team Call Centers in Dallas/Fort Worth  and Mayfield, Kentucky to our sources within our markets that ALN diligently tracks, each completed survey has gone through a number of proprietary data checks that assure the information collected is correct. Information is obtained from sources deemed reliable; however, ALN Apartment Data provides neither warranties nor guarantees.
  • ALN’s product set consist of conventional, affordable, senior independent and affordable, student and military housing. Vendor Edge Plus, ALN OnLine and Locator programs reflect 50+ unit properties. Compass reflects 1 unit or greater. ALN’s database contains all property age categories.
  • ALN continues to provide multifamily professionals the tools they need to make decisions and stay competitive in the nation’s fastest growing markets. We’re working hard to give you the edge you need to keep ahead of the curve, and are consistently updating and redefining our data to ensure our quality holds true for your expectations.
