    DH and I looked online at apts we liked, he got here before I did so his friend drove him around to look at them, meanwhile he stayed in a hotel for a couple nights. Luckily his friend helped us choose a great apt complex.

    I personally didn't see the apt, DH did so I trusted his judgement. But I wouldn't move into a place without at least one of us seeing it in person.

    oh and no I would never even look at a document with out seeing something. You could sign a contract and be taken to a place that was not even the pictures and then have to deal with all that legally.

    I checked the no box because I have learned my lesson. We found the rental we are currently in through militarybyowner.com and we did not look at it first. Anyway, to make a long story short, I am sooo glad we only signed a 6 month lease. The house is totally dated, the bedrooms all have different color carpet. The bathroom has wild spongepaint on it, the house is just a disaster and we are paying an arm and a leg to live here. The landlord totally misrepresented the house online. I should have known better. Never ever rent a place without looking at it in person first.

    That's a good point. I'm just trying to decide if I should go to CO in July or wait until August or what. My mom thinks I should deal with a property manager. Maybe I should pick a few and then just go a few days earlier. I don't know.
