Typically, the best time to tour is about 45-60 days from your move-in date, but what’s important is you want to be ready to make a decision that same day. If you’re not prepared to lease the same day you visit, you risk someone else getting the apartment you want, the price going up the next day, and missing out on look and lease specials that expire 24 hours after your visit. Also, keep in mind that more people tour on weekends, so it’s better to visit during the week if possible, especially if you’re trying to view several properties that same day. Most properties do not require an appointment during the week, but since weekends are so busy, appointments for a tour are recommended.
