If you're moving from Europe to Arizona in the U.S., you could read endless local newspaper ads listing Phoenix apartment rentals, fly across “the Pond” a few times to visit Phoenix apartments for rent (many of which may not interest you), and work with a local real estate broker, spending endless time reading emails or making phone calls. You could do this, but there is a much better way.
Use the Internet to save you time, money, and possible frustration. First, try to decide which Phoenix home rentals interest you. By making a good wish list (number of bedrooms, baths, style, square footage, preferred locations, etc.), you can focus your search for Phoenix apartments for rent to show you only those that match your criteria. This feature, alone, will save you lots of time. But this is only the beginning.
Even extensive and explicit text seldom replaces good pictures. From your European home, you can often view the exterior and interior of Phoenix home rentals that you might like. You'll no doubt view some that are not interesting, also. But, think of the time you save by not investigating these further. Good quality pictures might make the difference in your selection of your next residence.
When you've reached your goal, with some home rental Phoenix selections, you could then visit and settle on a new home. Should you find the perfect apartment for rent in Phoenix, you may even have an opportunity to complete a preliminary deal via the ‘Net.
