Pynwheel Announces Tour-From-Home Product for Multifamily Real Estate


Pynwheel offers Self Tour from Home

Leasing offices are closed because of the pandemic, but people still need to find homes.

Pynwheel Inc. today announced a tour-from-home version of Pynwheel Self Tour, a mobile experience that now allows prospective residents to take virtual tours of multifamily real estate properties from the comfort of their couch – or from anywhere – on their own schedule. No appointment necessary.

With Pynwheel Self Tour, prospective residents are guided through the property with an interactive map. At each stop, they can watch a video, flip through photos, and read short descriptions. The optional “chat” feature allows them to ask questions and converse with leasing staff. Once they find an apartment they like, they can apply for a lease right from the app.

“Leasing offices are closed because of the pandemic, but people still need to find homes,” said Jennifer Cyphers, Pynwheel’s CEO, “We’re happy that we were able to quickly adjust the product to accommodate the current state of things. The beauty of technology is that it allows us to adapt to conditions that we can’t even foresee.”


Once prospective residents are able to set foot on property again, the app will allow them to tour properties while maintaining social distance. The interactive map will guide them through the property and the app will allow them to open locked doors, take photos, and take notes. Built-in security features keep the property staff and residents feeling secure.

Pynwheel is working to on-board as many properties as possible as quickly as possible to fulfill this need.

Pynwheel Self Tour can be found on the App Store and Google Play.
