When it comes to looking for a place to rent, it can be such a huge hassle. From finding the right location and price, to ensuring the place is well-maintained, it sometimes takes forever just to rent a home.

Not to mention, after hours of scrolling and finally narrowing down rental listings within your budget, you need to head to each property in person to have a proper look and decide whether it's worth the price. 

With all the fake or duplicate listings out there, the last thing you want is to end up in a place below your expectations.

And after all that, if you're still not happy with what you see in person, then you're back to square one. All that time and money spent travelling looking at rental homes wasted, ughh T.T

Understanding these concerns, home rental platform Instahome is making it possible for you to view and book your rental unit online!

This all-in-one platform offers a fully digital renting experience, where you won't even have to travel to visit your desired rental. Everything is done online, from searching for properties and booking, to paying your monthly rent and managing your home, wah! It's an experience like no other. ;)

Whether you're looking for a room, an apartment, or a landed property, you can check out the property interior with their 360° virtual tour!

Watch the video below to find out how you can use the virtual tour for yourself:

Through the virtual tour, you'll be able to navigate from room to room, and zoom in and out so you can get a clearer picture of the unit.

Or, you can even schedule a free live viewing session via Zoom or Google Hangouts with the Instahome team, and they'll guide you through the virtual tour online, yay! Check out the video below to see how it's done:

With their 150-point inspection checklist, every home listed on their site is checked and verified by the Instahome team. They even make it a point to update their virtual tour videos, photographs, and check the unit on a regular basis, so what you see is what you get.

If you're still skeptical about the property after the virtual tour, no worries! Instahome will head to your preferred unit and show you around on-site with a live call session. :D

Be it through WhatsApp video call or FaceTime, this feature can be incredibly useful when certain properties do not allow physical viewing, or if you're in a different state. They will show you every crevice of the property from top to bottom, so you can make an informed decision from the comfort of home.

Another great thing about Instahome is once you've finalised on a rental, you don't have to travel interstate to sign the physical agreement! Instahome will help you every step of the way with the booking process.

Here's how you can book a rental with Instahome: 

STEP 1: Submit your IC, passport, and Visa documents to book your preferred rental. If you are a student, you will be asked for your offer letter or student ID.

STEP 2: Wait for the landlord to accept your booking within 48 hours.

STEP 3: Once the landlord confirms your booking, sign the digital tenancy agreement and pay your advance rental, security deposit, and utility deposit through Instahome.

When you're ready to move in, Instahome will check your home up to three times as a precaution. And, when it comes to maintaining your home, you can use Instahome to find maintenance providers, be it for aircond repairs, plumbing issues, and cleaning services. 

It's a great time to book a rental with Instahome, especially since you'll be entitled to a RM500 rental rebate if you're fully vaccinated
