TourGuide App: Introducing Self-Guided Apartment Tours

Self-Guided Tour at Irvine Company Apartments

As the world becomes increasingly digitized with in-person interactions becoming less frequent, rental companies and landlords have had to shift how they show their apartment homes. While you can often find an array of photos, videos, and even virtual tours online, nothing beats the in-person experience of walking through the space itself. Enter, TourGuide, Irvine Company’s self-guided tour app.

TourGuide by Irvine CompanyWhat Are Self-Guided Apartment Tours?

Self-guided tours are quite different from traditional tours. With traditional tours, you have to get in contact with the leasing office, schedule a time that works for both parties, and then wait for them to unlock the unit and show you around. A self-guided tour removes the variables of waiting on a leasing agent and scheduling, and instead allows you to select a time to tour and show yourself around.

During a self-guided tour, you have the freedom to explore the space any way you want without needing to follow a leasing consultant or feel sales pressure. Moreover, due to Covid-19 best practices, each apartment home is thoroughly sanitized between visits for your health and well-being.

  1. Be sure to bring a valid form of identification. Often the leasing office will need to validate your identity to ensure there is no damage or theft to the apartment.

  3. As of the writing of this article (December 2020), Irvine Company is requiring all self-guided tour participants wear masks and adhere to social distancing when walking through the community.
