I live in a large urban area in Germany. Many students and young people in general live in shared apartments (colloquially referred to as "WG" (short for "Wohngemeinschaft" (flatshare)). When a person is moving out, their former flatmates often put up ads on online platforms that people interested in the room reply to. If the person sounds like a good fit, they are invited to the flatshare to see if they are a good fit for the flat.
The process of going to a flat from an online ad and meeting the current tenants and introducing yourself is commonly referred to as "WG-Besichtigung". Is there a similar term in English? If not, how would you go about paraphrasing it? I don't think this is a local phenomenon and assume it's happening in English-speaking countries as well, so I'd think there is a commonly used term for it that I have yet to learn.
