In apartment hunting and found out a bunch of high-rises buildings claimed to only have higher priced unit when talked in person, then when I go home and check online, their website literally have several available unit a few hundreds cheaper. Are these leasing agent basically trying to trick people into more expensive unit or there is something missing?

It's possible they are incentivized to lease the more expensive units or they aren't the agent for the less expensive units.

I haven't had that happen to me. Quick check: did you ask about the timing of the apartments too? Some units available online won't be available for X weeks or months, which may not suit your timeline. That impacted availability for me.

Timing is not supposed to be an issue because I went today in person looking for available unit to visit(am not renting now just to get some sense before actual move in Jan). There are tons of option online indicating availability now : /
