Re: Help with motivational letter for a landlord

Doesn't appear the OP is looking at large flats at all.

New to Switzerland with a new job doesn't give the employee much history. If the new employee is still in the probationary period this can definitely be of some concern to a landlord. Temporary housing is often a good idea until one is sure of the employment situation.

As for viewings, not everyone has the flexibility to see a flat as soon as an ad appears, especially if one is in a new job. After work or weekends might be the only opportunity for a new employee who cannnot take time off work.

40 viewings but only 15 applications tells me that the OP is wasting a lot of time looking at flats that are unsuitable and not worth applying for. 15 rejections seems quite high looking at some of the locations the OP listed.
Valid point about probation and may make sense at this point to wait until it's over assuming it's 3 months.

Some agencies will still favour families over a single person renting a 2 bedroom flat.
