The Emergence of Self-Guided Tours

When deciding on a new apartment community to live at, scheduling a tour is perhaps the most crucial part of the process. A tour allows you to get one-on-one time with a leasing agent who will show you what the community has to offer as well as answer any of the questions you may have. While it will always be to your benefit to schedule a tour, it can sometimes be inconvenient to schedule one, especially when trying to secure a new place to live is time sensitive. 

A great way to find out if an apartment is the right fit for you without inconveniencing your schedule is to try a self-guided tour. 

A self-guided tour is quite different from a regular tour. Instead of scheduling an appointment with a leasing agent, you will simply just pick a time to visit and examine the property on your own without the company of a leasing agent. This allows you to tour the property without feeling any pressure from a leasing or sales consultant while also allowing you to be flexible with your schedule. The Covid-19 pandemic has increased the importance of self-guided tours. 

While social distancing has been proven to reduce the risk of contracting the virus, there’s always a chance that you could contract the virus if you come into close contact with someone who has it. A self-guided tour eliminates the chances of getting sick by removing other people from the equation. We ensure that every part of the apartment that you’re touring has been sanitized before you arrive. 

At Meadows Crossing, which is located in Allendale, Michigan, directly across the street from GVSU, you now have the option to take a self-guided tour instead of a traditional tour.

The process for scheduling a self-guided tour is done through our website and is very easy to do. 

  • First, click the Chat widget in the bottom left hand corner of our website. – Then click “Schedule A Tour” from the drop down menu and select “Self-Guided.” – From there you’ll be able to schedule a date and time that works best for you, and you’ll be asked to enter your contact information. 
  • You will then receive a confirmation email with instructions on what you should do upon arrival. 
  • During the tour our Alexa device will provide you with any necessary info about the unit you’re touring while you freely walk around and check out the interior of the apartment. 
  • Whenever you finish looking at the unit, just give us a call and we’ll provide you with our pricing options and current specials. 

Meadows Crossing is dedicated to making sure our touring and application process is convenient, safe and effective for all of our potential residents. If you have any interest in living at Meadows Crossing and are unable to schedule a traditional tour, then consider scheduling a self-guided tour with us!
