With the growing population of humans and the lack of proper housing, vertical homes called ‘apartments’ have been under more consideration. There are real estate agents who are always on a hunt for potential customers or tenants.
Not only that, the digital era has also helped us to find out own dream “apartments” in the big city.
- Zillow Rentals.
If you own an Apple or Android gadget product, simply download this app. There is an access for over 400,000 spaces for rent throughout The States. If you aim for more specific details, like pet policy, in-unit laundry, or on-site parking, and save the searches that have piqued your interest the most, this app is definitely for you.
- Trulia Rentals.
Trulia Rentals also offers you the effective digital assistance to find your future home. In fact, it only takes a click or two to get you to be in direct contact with the property manager. You don’t even need to fill an inquiry form first for every apartment unit you’re interested in or search for their phone numbers.
With real-time availability, you get to see the details the apartment communities offer, with expected additional fees and a map-based app. The 3-D features helps you to visualise the whole unit better before visiting the actual venue.
Does this mean we no longer need the help of a real estate agent to find the apartment of our dreams? Apparently, some reasons show that yes, we still do. Some of the reasons are:
- Access and convenience.
Doing a research on apartments online is one thing, but inspecting them for real is another. With the help of the real estate agent, you’ll be shown to certain details that may not have been updated yet on the app. For example: the rise of the rent just a few days after you checked the unit on the app and before you get to the actual location.
- Tricky negotiations and contracts.
Some people still prefer meeting the real estage agent before deciding on an apartment unit. Negotiations can be rather tricky, especially with legal contracts. Digital signatures can still be forged, no matter how sophisticated that may sound.
- They give you more accurate and professional advice.
It’s true that you’re the one making the final decision. However, it won’t do any harm if you listen to the real estate agent’s professional advice. The apps may offer choices of home-living, but you still need to see the real deal before choosing one in the end.
So, what can we all come up with from this? The apps to find apartments are really handy, but combining them with the help of the real estate agent might give you a more solid reference. It helps you to make the right decision before renting – or buying – a unit of apartment.
