Are you skeptical about virtual tours? Overwhelmed by all the online apartment search sites? You’re probably not alone. Choosing a home is a big decision and a tricky one in a world where visiting it in person isn’t always an option. Luckily, the world is adapting, and virtual technology has evolved to overcome hurdles posed by COVID-19. Following a few simple tips like the ones outlined below will surely help make that potential new apartment home a reality!
There are multiple apartment search sites – ok, there are A LOT of apartment search sites. Don’t know where to begin? Check out Simpson’s Apartments page to see whether any of our nationwide apartment communities are in your area. Click through to be taken directly to the community’s website for the most up to date information on our luxury apartment homes.
What amenities are important to you? What is the neighborhood like? What is it like to live at the community? How soon can you move in?
The community’s website is the best source to find answers to these questions as well as up-to-date information regarding tour options, pricing and availability. It is always best to double check pricing and availability on a regular basis because it can change daily. Your first instinct may be to go to Yelp or Google to find out what residents have to say but Renter’s Voice and social media pages are great tools when looking for a true representation of what it is like living at a particular community.
Leave your doubts about virtual tours behind! Once you’ve selected the community that best fits your needs, check out our Virtual Tour Tips to help make the most out of the virtual experience.
