Q. When should I begin viewing the inside of properties I want to consider?
Around 30 days or less before actual move in.
Why: The properties in the Phoenix Metro area are either vacant or are going to be vacant soon and the landlord will not want to leave a property vacant for more than 30 days. Even 30 days will not be favorable and a landlord may just decide to wait for different applicant who can move in sooner. I have a solution to this problem.
Q. How do I get in to see the properties that interest me?
Call, e-mail or chat live over the live chat to schedule a mutual and convenient time to see the properties.
Q. How soon do I need to make a decision on a property that I like and want?
The answer is “before someone else does”. I once saw a saying that goes something like this, “the house you see today and are thinking about until tomorrow, is a house that someone saw yesterday and is thinking of taking today.”
