There are lots of reasons for renting a new home without ever setting foot in the apartment. You may take a new job and need to move to a different city or state ASAP. If you’re in the military you may be transferred to a new base and require new housing nearby. Or maybe you need to care for an infirm loved one for an extended period of time. Whatever the reason, you may need to move fast without any opportunities to shop around for a new apartment. If that’s the case, these are the three questions you need to ask the property manager or owner before renting an apartment sight unseen!

Can a Friend Take a Tour of the Apartment?

If you can’t be there in person, a trusted friend or family member is a great substitute! If renting a place sight unseen is a bit too risky for your sensibilities, you can always ask the property manager if someone else can take a tour of the apartment for you. Most property managers will not see a problem with this arrangement. If they agree to this option, make sure your friend or relative knows what you’re looking for. Supply them with a detailed list of questions to ask the property manager. Ask them to take lots of pictures that they can email or text you later. This will give you a better idea of what your potential home offers. If the relative or friend is a local member of the community, ask them to let you know about the apartment’s neighborhood, proximity to major roads and public transportation, and convenience to nearby shops, restaurants and attractions. And have them confirm the various fees, utilities, and in-unit and community amenities.

Can You Take Me On a Video Tour?

Many apartment facility website’s offer a gallery or virtual tour function. While these are extremely helpful, they still don’t provide the same answers as an in-person tour. If you don’t have any friends or relatives in the community you’re moving to, you can always ask the property manager if they can give you a tour via a video call. Using their smartphone or tablet, the property manager can conduct a real-time tour using a popular video call platform such as Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or Google Meet. This will allow you to get a closer look at your new potential home. Plus, it gives you an opportunity to ask questions, discuss rent and fees, and learn more about the property and the community. You can even ask the property manager if one of your potential neighbors is available to give you some greater insight from a renter’s perspective.

Has the Apartment Building Ever Been Damaged?

While knowing everything about the apartment’s floor plan, amenities, fees, and neighborhood are all vital to determining if renting sight unseen is the right choice for you, there’s one more important thing to cover. Be sure to ask the property manager if the apartment has ever experienced any significant damage. Before you move to a new place sight unseen, you want to be sure that the property is not susceptible to floods, fires, or other various emergencies. There you have it! Now you know some of the ways you can better prepare yourself if you have to rent an apartment sight unseen. If you find yourself having to relocate to the Glendale area or Los Angeles County, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that the apartments at 416 On Broadway offer a total satisfaction move-in guarantee!
