Prefer to Fly Solo? Take a Self-Guided Tour

Camden offers self-guided tours, allowing you to tour the apartment homes that match the preferences you’ve shared with us at your own pace. This type of tour is great whether you’re short on time or if you want to take time to get a feel for the apartment. On your self-guided tour, you also have the opportunity to explore the community, take pictures or have a chat about the apartment with a friend or significant other.

Most Camden communities are equipped with our smart lock solution, Chirp Access. When you schedule your tour, you’ll receive email and SMS instructions on accessing community entry points, amenity areas, and the apartments you are touring using the Chirp Access app. With your tour instructions, we provide a community site map and a phone number so you can ask any questions you have while touring. A knowledgeable Camden team member is always available to help.

Can’t Make in Person? Take a Live Video Tour

Do you live out of town or have a busy schedule and just can’t make it in person? We’ve got an excellent solution for every circumstance. With a live video tour, you tour a Camden apartment community through your smartphone from the convenience of your location. Camden will use Skype or FaceTime to conduct your tour; all you need is reliable cell service or Wi-Fi.

Taking a live video tour also means you get the best of both worlds. You get to view the apartment from your location while a Camden team member shows you the apartment or community features you’re most interested in. The popularity of live video tours spiked during social distancing, and it’s here to stay!
