Apartment touring on your time, at your pace.
Seeing an apartment in person is by far one of the most important parts of an apartment search process. However, busy work schedules, family commitments, and the stress of moving can often make scheduling in-person tours within office hours a bit difficult. Luckily, a new approach to apartment tours is now here and changing the way renters tour their future homes: self-guided tours. Oakwood Management Company is proud to be at the forefront of innovative apartment search technology by implementing self-guided tours throughout our portfolio.
What is a self-guided apartment tour?
Typically, to tour an apartment, you contact a leasing agent, schedule a time that works for both parties, and then wait on them to show you around. A self-guided tour removes the variables of waiting on a leasing agent and scheduling, and instead allows the potential renter (you) to select a time to tour the apartment all on your own.
How does a self-guided tour work?
There are a few key pieces to this process that make self-guided tours convenient, safe, and fun. First, you will apply on the property website to take a self-guided tour. This is as simple as filling out an online appointment request and completing a quick ID verification. After everything is verified, you will then get a confirmation email with instructions for your appointment.
From there, you will access the unit you’re touring through a programmable keypad. This allows the property to set restrictions on who has access to the unit and change the password after every potential renter has toured the property. Once you’re in the unit, you will find flyers and signage that will help you navigate the floor plan and amenities available. When you’re finished looking around, you can lock the door and be on your way!
What are the advantages of self-guided tours?
Benefits of touring the apartment on your own include:
- 1. You can tour the apartment in your own free time without having to change your daily routine. Appointments are available even outside of office hours, every day from 9 A.M. to 8 P.M.
- 2. You are not put under any pressure to make an instant decision and can take the time to consider your own thoughts. No one wants to feel like they are being rushed, we get it!
- 3. You can take your time inside the apartment. Everyone gets a 30-minute timeframe to explore at their own leisure.
Searching for your next apartment is never easy, but Oakwood Management is hoping to add some ease to that process with our self-guided tours! Interested in taking one for a spin? Try a self-guided tour today at one of our participating properties!
