There are specific rules to adhere to if you want to rent an apartment but cannot physically visit or tour it because you are out of town. In this story, YEN.com.gh shows you how you can investigate and tour a building without actually entering.
Research The Neighbourhood
Start looking at potential communities for your future home. It will be easier to drive around the neighbourhood if you reside nearby. However, you can browse the community online if you are abroad or out of town. In addition to standard Googling, consider seeing whether someone provides virtual tours on YouTube.
Ask for a Live Video Tour
Ask your real estate agent or the property owner by phone whether they can give a live video tour of the property (through Facetime, Skype, or any other video service) to get a better sense of it. Setting a time for this is necessary and highly beneficial. This will allow you to view the apartment and meet the real estate agent and landlord virtually. It is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

Research Reputation of Property
When you finally settle on an apartment after looking at the images and videos online, check out the apartment's reviews online to find out what others say about the property. Additionally, this is a beautiful opportunity to get opinions from nearby friends or relatives. They could have further knowledge about the area or apartment to give, or they might know someone who does.
