    Would you rent an apt without seeing it?

    Advertisements
    There's an apt we are interested in. It's going to open up at about the perfect time for us. We like the square footage, we like the price, we like the # of bedrooms and baths. We also like the 3 pictures posted on the website of the inside. I am calling the rental place today to ask a few more questions about it that I have. We are unable to go and look at the apt though because I am on the east coast and he's deployed.

    Would you rent an apt without physically seeing it? Neither of us have ever rented before.

    I'm going to say thank you in advance in hopes of someone answering this post. So thanks.

    No I would not rent with out seeing it first or having someone maybe that lives there that you know looking at it for you.

    NO. The only time we've done that was with a complex we'd already lived in once before.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    No! I would never ever do that. You need to know about the neighborhood first.

    Do you know anyone in that area that could go look at it for you? I personally wouldn't rent it if I hadn't seen it yet. You never know about the pictures on the website. They could be from when the place was brand new, several renters ago.

    We rented a house we found on the internet but hadn't physically seen it. We were sent pictures of it.

    RUN, not walk, from renting a place you have not physically seen or had someone you trust physically look at it for you.

    With that said though, I hope, if you do really like it, and it turns out to be as nice as you see it online, you get it.

    Good Luck.

    I wouldn't either. Pictures can be very deceiving!

    No I probably wouldn't. I would try to get someone in the area whose opinion I trusted to check it out for me first if I had no way to do it myself.
    Needs work.
