Choosing an apartment or a condo to rent is an important decision—and the more information you can give prospective renters, the more likely you’ll be to get your lease signed. If you are a real estate agent, property owner, or virtual tour service provider, don’t overlook creating virtual tours for rental properties like apartments, town homes, and condominiums.
Why should you create virtual tours for apartments?
Most people who are looking to rent an apartment are just like home buyers in that they want a place to call home, where they’ll be comfortable and happy. Whether they’re moving locally or from a long distance, an apartment virtual tour will give them the opportunity to experience individual units without having to schedule an extra trip to the property. This convenience helps you to attract more interested renters, who are able to see exactly what your units look like right from their computer or mobile device.
In addition, virtual tours for apartments allow you to point out the unique characteristics of each unit you have available. Not all apartments, condos, and townhouses are the same, and renters like to know that there’s something interesting or different about the unit they’re considering.
What to include in an apartment virtual tour
As with any effective virtual tour, a great virtual tour for an apartment will show all of the major areas that renters want to know about. Include stunning, high quality images and video of the unit’s living area, kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. For units with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, be sure to include photos of each individual room—even if they have similar or identical designs.
Your apartment virtual tour should also include images of the interior of the unit building, along with any shared amenities available to tenants, such as laundry rooms, vending machines, or gym areas. Show the exterior of the building, as well as outside areas for use by tenants such as courtyards, porches, or balconies. If you have dedicated parking areas for tenants, include them in your virtual tour as well.
Finally, many renters want to know about the surrounding neighborhood and community. Take photos and videos of nearby amenities and conveniences, especially those that are within walking distance or accessible by public transportation. Don’t forget to include contact information at the end of your virtual tour, so interested renters can find out more or schedule a viewing!
