Keeping up with your apartment search is difficult. Your busy. You have kids to tend to right after work. Cook and after you cook you have to clean. By the time it’s all done, it’s time to hop in the shower and call it a day. Life is busy but you still have to find a new place by the end of the month. Here are a few of the benefits of using an apartment locator instead of trying to do the search on your own.
Apartment Locators Save You Time
Finding an apartment is not an easy task. Both pricing and availability change on a daily bases, not that it is ever correct online anyways, you have to hear the recorded voice message several times before you can talk to the leasing agent and don’t forget, the hours of research that needs to be done. You have to look into the price ranges of different areas, select properties one by one on Google Maps and visit every website to see what the pricing is, scroll through listing sites, such as Craigslist, to find that its over taken by agents advertising properties with units that are not even available and that is just the beginning.
Using an apartment locator, you receive a list of apartments that match the requirements you give your agent. Before sending your list, we look through every listing that comes up on our search, that was already refined by the database by your requirements, to triple check that we don’t waste your time with properties that don’t have what you’re looking for. We also call for you to verify we are sending you properties that actually have availability for your time frame. This can help you complete your search within days vs. the weeks it would have taken doing it on your own.
Apartment Locators Have Experience
As agents, we have tons of experience and go through the process of finding an apartment several times a day. As humans, when repeating a task over and over again your brain naturally finds shortcuts to become more efficient in less time than before. You learn what works and what doesn’t work, you learn the right questions to ask and how to word them to get the most important information about the place you will be calling home for the next year, you learn how to time the pricing system to get the best price available.
Why wouldn’t you want the help of someone as such? This can save you tons of money by helping you get the best price available. It is also better to have your agent with you while touring to get important questions answered at the time of viewing the property instead of learning about it after signing the lease.
Apartment Locators Have Your Best Interest In Mind
The leasing agents main priority is to get you to sign a lease at their property. This may not be true about all leasing agents and I do not want to get on anybodies bad side, but think about it. If you worked somewhere and got commission for closing a deal would you refer your customer to another company?
As someone who works with almost all of the properties here in Houston we are more worried about finding you the perfect apartment that fits what you say you want instead of trying to say all the right things to make you change your mind about not liking something.
Apartment Locators Have Toured The Apartments Many Times
We have personally toured the apartments. Not only do we learn which properties look nothing like their online pictures, we also take note of all the different features and amenities to better recommend properties to clients.
Apartment Locators Have Good Connections With Leasing Agents
Being in the apartment industry for a while, you get to know your fellow leasing agents. Locators are one of the first to know when apartments start running specials, when construction/upgrades are going to happen and much more. Use this to your advantage by working with a locator!
I hope you have learned a lot about apartment locators and the benefits that comes with using one. The best part about it all, is that it is a free service! So, what are you waiting for?? Start Your Apartment Search Now!
