Although states are starting to reopen in phases, social distancing still exists due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This also is having an impact on the multi-family apartment leasing experience. While virtual tours of multi-family apartments have picked up in popularity, so have agentless self-guided tours, according to a recent RENTCafe survey. At many communities around the nation, prospective renters can schedule a self-guided tour online, go through an ID verification, and then receive an address and an access code for the tour.

According to a survey of 3,500 Americans, 83% of the respondents said they would use the self-guided tours to see a potential future home in person despite the virtual tour options that are now available.
