Re: Giving up..

One useful trick that i was taught by Swiss friends is to not be passive.

So when viewing the appartment, make sure you chat with the landlord so he remembers you and leave a positive impression. Then phone the following day and explain how you simply love that appartment and that its absolutely perfect for you. Even if they promise to call you back, ignore that and call them anyway. It's a bit like applying for a job or trying to get somewhere in the dating scene. Being passive is usually not the right strategy. How is the landlord going to tell from your application form that you're such a wonderful person and the perfect tenant? Be someone and be noticed.

I'd been looking for an appartment for months and was giving up hope when i got that advice. Guess what. I got the very next appartment I looked at.
