Renting a flat without seeing it first: things to know
Are you planning to fly the family nest and set off to study elsewhere? You're ready for the good life, but all that admin is a little off-putting and scary? Maybe you just don't want to travel halfway across France to look at flats? So how do you "visit without visiting?" Nemea Appart'Etud has all the lowdown.
It is possible to rent a flat without seeing it first!
Though we have to admit, finding a flat is often wrought with difficulties. You want to find the flat of your dreams but opportunities to do that in person are limited. So, you're stuck doing it all remotely. Don't panic, it's perfectly feasible!
And in a way, it makes it easier: no need to waste your time on lots of pointless visits or spend 8 hours travelling just to meet the owner. Or even worse: having to deal with those renowned group visits with 20 people lining up to see a 9 m² flat.
Discover your living space on the day you move in
Looking for an apartment from a distance can be quite practical and convenient if you can't actually get there. As a first step, you can always ask friends who live in the city you want to move to for help. They could visit on your behalf. But if you're not convinced of your friends' ability to evaluate your new home, then there is still the option of a virtual visit.
It's quite possible to visit your future home from your sofa. Yes, this dream can actually be a reality and has now become quite common. So feel free to request a virtual visit. There is no reason for the owner to refuse unless they have something suspicious to hide (and that's obviously a bad sign, so move on)! The advantage is that you can get the opinion of friends and family more easily, as they won't need to travel either. To avoid surprises, remember to ask all the questions you can think of and ask for as many photos and videos as possible (you can never have enough)!
