Telephone Qualifying Comments (Please explain all your "No" or "NA" answers/and any additional questions that were asked of you.) :

April asked when I wanted to move and I said the beginning of January. She did not ask what size apartment I wanted, but instead immediately said that she did not have any one-bedrooms available that early and the soonest a one-bedroom would be available was on February 15th and that one is going for $1,250. She suggested a two-bedroom option that would be available in January that start at $1,495 for two bedroom/one bathroom and $1,535 for two-bedroom/two bathrooms.

I inquired about the two-bedroom/two bathrooms. April said she could have one ready within 30 days and I could either move in later this month or definitely by January 1st. I said this would work. Then I asked what do I do next. April offered to email me a virtual tour. She asked if anyone else would be living with me and I said no. April said it was fine and told me that they do a credit check and have income requirements. She explained as long as all of that would be provided, that they would be happy to rent the apartment to me. April did not ask about pets or any special preferences I might have or my reason for moving.

Telephone Demonstration Comments (Please explain all your "No" or "NA" answers/and any additional questions that were asked of you.) :

April offered a virtual tour, but also explained that they are offering in-person tours as self-guided where they send me directly to a specific address and I would walk through by myself at my own pace. The apartment would be unlocked at a scheduled time. Because of COVID they are limiting their in-person contact and this would allow me to see the apartment in person. April did email me the information she promised and with that I scheduled an in-person self-guided tour for the next day.

April did not ask any questions to find out my specific wants and needs in the home, nor did she talk about apartment features or community amenities. I felt she did create a little urgency when she said I could tour the apartment in the next couple of days.

Comments (Please explain in detail your experience.):

No one was there to greet me for my in-person tour. I received an email (below) that instructed me to go directly to an apartment that would be unlocked and that I would be touring the unit by myself because of COVID protocol. I was told on the phone and again in the email that after my tour, if I had any questions, I could call April and she would help me over the phone. She was unable to see me in person at this time.
