What Is an Apartment Locator, or Atlanta Rental Agent?

An apartment locator, or rental agent, devotes all their energy to you. This free service takes all the pressure off of finding an apartment so that you can focus on the fun part of your new home, exploring the city and enjoying your new space. Working with an Atlanta rental agent unlocks access to insider information that’s hard to gain on your own. An apartment locator service pairs you with a local expert who knows the city better than anyone else, including how to find the right neighborhood for your lifestyle and what buildings offer the amenities that you want.

How Much Does an Atlanta Apartment Locator Cost?

It’s 100% free for you to use an apartment locator! You’ll enjoy this VIP experience at no cost during any point of the process. If you’re wondering how this is possible, you’re not alone! It’s a pretty sweet deal. 

Our building and apartment community partners pay commissions to our agents when a client signs a lease with them. These buildings gain qualified tenants and increased online visibility when their listings show up on our apartment search pages (basically, free marketing help), meaning there’s no cost to renters.

What Does an Atlanta Apartment Locator Do?

An apartment locator at AptAmigo handles a variety of apartment-hunting tasks for you, from compiling a list of potential buildings based on your needs, to scheduling tours, and even paying for ridesharing between tour appointments. It’s truly a one-stop-shop focused on a convenient, enjoyable, and no-hassle experience for you.

Let’s break down what you can expect!

First, share what your perfect apartment home looks like.

You’ll first put together a list of must-haves to share with your Atlanta rental agent. Think about factors like location (especially traffic if you’re a commuter!), building amenities, in-unit features, like finishes or tech upgrades, and any other important details your expert should know.

Second, review building options so that we can schedule your tours.

Your locator will share a list of available apartments and buildings that fit your criteria, and once you narrow down some potential favorites, they’ll get to work on coordinating a day of appointments. Sit back and relax – all you need to do is show up ready to tour.

Then, get your tour on!

This stage is definitely the fun part! AptAmigo will accompany you on tours at the buildings you selected. They’ll let you know about any available rent discounts and deals, and help you decide which apartment is the right fit for you based on your needs.

What Are the Perks of Using an Atlanta Apartment Locator?

In our opinion, the best perk is that it’s zero cost to you (and we love anything free!). 

But in all seriousness, we know that you’re busy, and that finding the right apartment can be a big challenge. We like to think of apartment locators as operating like personal assistants – they’ll handle all of the hard tasks involved in finding your next apartment so that you can remain stress-free.

Another great perk is that they provide some serious expertise. AptAmigo’s Atlanta team is comprised of local experts who know all the neighborhoods and apartment buildings around the city. They can provide access to exclusive discounts on rent, potentially saving you thousands that you can put toward enjoying the city or furnishing your new home.

What Are the Downsides of Using an Atlanta Apartment Locator?

If you prefer to take the reins handling all the small details, you might have a bit of trouble letting go during the apartment search process. After all, locators at AptAmigo do all the work for you. The good news is that you still have control every step of the way. Your locator will act as your trusted consultant, so they’ll work with you to make sure you feel involved and comfortable during the search process. 

Another downside to consider – you might fall in love with multiple apartments, and, of course, you can only pick one. Especially in a city like Atlanta with so many unique and dynamic neighborhoods. It can be hard to narrow your search. Peek at our Atlanta apartment guide for some of our favorite buildings to help you get started.
